Long-awaited upgrade for busy

Cashmere intersection starts soon

LONG-AWAITED work to

improve safety for all road users

at a busy intersection along

Cashmere Rd will start this

month.

City council planning and

delivery manager Lynette

Ellis said construction on the

Cashmere, Hoon Hay and

Worsleys Rds intersection will

take four months.

“We’re realigning the

intersection so vehicles can

cross directly from Hoon

Hay Rd to Worsleys Rd, and

installing traffic lights and

pedestrian signals,” said Ellis.

“This is a busy intersection

with a high number of cyclists

and motorists. This area is also

the entrance to the Christchurch

Adventure Park and the new

Cashmere Estate subdivision.’’

The city council has contracted

HEB Construction

to carry out the intersection

improvements.

Upgrades at the intersection

will include re-aligning the intersection

to accommodate traffic

lights, constructing speed humps

in the surrounding streets as a

traffic calming measure, planting

native trees and new road

landscape gardens.

“The new traffic signals will

make it easier and safer for

pedestrians to cross the road at

this intersection,” said Ellis.

“As expected with a project of

this scale, there will be disruption

to traffic while we reconstruct

the intersection, but we’ll

have traffic management and

signs in place to let you know

where to go.

“The Cracroft shopping

centre and customer parking

will remain open during

construction, so keep shopping

Work under way on Hornets’ building

• By Chris Barclay

IT’S FINALLY game on at the

site of the new Halswell Hornets

rugby league club headquarters,

thanks to a vital funding

injection for the $2 million

project.

Work has recently got under

way on a former car park at

Halswell Domain, more than

a decade after the original

clubrooms were

damaged by the

earthquakes.

Protracted discussions

with the

club’s insurance

company delayed

Jeff

Whittaker

the start of the

multi-purpose

building, while

the eventual payout

still left a $400,000 shortfall.

Hornets vice-president Jeff

Whittaker said assistance from

the Lottery Grants Board, the

Rata Foundation and Canterbury

West Coast Air Rescue

Trust over the last three months

got the rebuild over the line.

“If they hadn’t come on board

to help we basically couldn’t

have got a loan or refinance to

pay the loan back to build the

clubrooms,” Whittaker said.

He hoped the new clubrooms,

which will also be utilised by

softball, touch rugby and possibly

netball, should be completed

by Christmas or the New Year.

When the new building is

ready the original must be demolished.

In the interim the Hornets

also had to build a storage room/

gym and changing sheds at the

Domain, costs that diminished

the insurance payout.

“It’s been quite sad in one

way,” Whittaker said.

“We were totally freehold,

we were insured. Then it was

costing $20,000 (a year) to

insure the clubrooms, storage

and changing sheds. We were

basically nearly going broke as a

voluntary organisation that was

pretty much only open Saturday

afternoon’s after footy.”

He credited devoted club

members for raising the funds to

cover those costs.

“The old brigade, our life

members have worked their

butts off to raise funds to get the

clubrooms up and running,” he

said.

BUILDING

BUZZ: The

Halswell

Hornets

rugby league

club’s new

rooms are

finally under

construction

at Halswell

Domain

thanks to

a funding

boost.

“They were running raffles on

a Thursday, Friday and Saturday

nights at the (Craythornes)

Halswell Tavern (Craythornes)

and doing barbecues just to raise

enough money to pay the insurance.”

Whittaker hoped the new

clubrooms would be used

throughout the week by sporting

and community organisations.

“We want the community to

be part of it. It’ll be a big project

once it’s up and running to see

what we can do that way.”

Library to close

temporarily,

service desk

running

LINWOOD LIBRARY will close

and the customer service desk will

relocate for three weeks from this

Sunday so that improvements can

be made to the facility.

“When Linwood Library and

customer service centre reopens

on April 27, visitors will be able to

enjoy new furnishing, décor and

a modified layout that will better

suit their needs,” said city council

head of libraries and information

Carolyn Robertson.

Customer services will continue

to operate while the library is

closed.

The desk will relocate to a spot

directly opposite the Linwood

Library entrance inside Eastgate

Mall. It will keep its usual hours

from Monday to Friday, 9am-

5pm.

“During the library’s temporary

three-week closure, people can

return borrowed items to any

library in our network. Reserved

items will be made available at

the nearby Shirley Library, unless

customers request otherwise,’’

Robertson said

The closest libraries for

Linwood residents are the Aranui

Library, Shirley Library and

Tūranga. All are open seven days

a week.

Air Force vet sponsors student for solo flight

WHEN AIR Force veteran

Derrick Hubbard flew solo

on his 90th birthday with the

Canterbury Recreational

Aircraft Club, he and his now

late wife, Vera, decided to pay it

forward.

Now 94, the Summerset at

Wigram retirement village

resident and his wife of 70 years

wanted to sponsor a young

person to experience the same

opportunity.

Derrick, originally from

England, joined the Royal Air

Force as an aircraft apprentice at

RAF Halton in 1943.

After serving as an engineer

alongside some Kiwis in No 24

Squadron during World War 2,

it cemented his desire to move to

New Zealand, which happened

in 1958.

He later joined the RNZAF

where he served for 24 years.

Amid the height of Covid-19

and following his wife’s death

last year, Derrick approached

CRAC flying instructor, Dave

Mitchell, and Air Force Museum

of New Zealand education

officer, Chris Davey, to seek out a

deserving young trainee pilot.

After a rigorous application

process, 16-year-old Rangiora

High School student Armani

Hansen received funding from

Derrick and Vera for lessons on

how to achieve a solo flight.

Armani has had a passion

for flight from a young age and

was already working part-time

at the Rangiora New World

supermarket to save for his longterm

goal to become a pilot.

He was also selected for a

Gateway Aviation programme at

high school to enhance his flight

theory knowledge.

OPPORTUNITY:

Air Force veteran

Derrick Hubbard,

94, and his

late wife, Vera,

sponsored

Armani Hansen,

16, to achieve his

first solo flight. ​

Flight instructor Mitchell put

Armani through his paces in

weekly flying lessons. At the

Rangiora Airfield last week

Armani was scheduled for a

further flying lesson.

As with most trainee pilots,

he had no prior warning of his

solo flight, as it is only when

the student is deemed ready by

the instructor who gives the goahead

to take off on their own.

With Armani’s family

secretly escorted into the CRAC

clubrooms, the group watched

as Mitchell instructed Armani

through “touch and go”

circuits, before taxiing to the

clubrooms.

“I told him we were taxiing

back to the threshold for another

take-off, and when near the

clubhouse I added – ‘but this

time you are doing it on your

own. I am getting out now’,”

Mitchell said.

With Derrick watching from

his home at Summerset via video

call, Armani took off and did a

circuit of the airfield, with an

empty seat next to him.

As he executed “a textbook

landing,” he finally spotted his

family next to the clubhouse.

Said Armani: “It was a very

exciting and exhilarating

experience that I will never

forget. When Dave got off the

plane and said I was going to

go up solo, I couldn’t keep the

grin off my face, even though it

was nerve-racking; the thought

of knowing that I would be at

1200ft all alone.

“Thank you so much to

Derrick for giving me the

Hubbard flying opportunity

– I will be forever grateful.

Thanks to Chris for all of your

organising and for choosing me,

and to Dave for getting me ready

to go solo.”

Said Armani’s mother Serena:

“I was nervous and scared but,

above all, just so excited for him.

He’s worked so hard and been so

determined to make his dream

of being a pilot come true and

this is an amazing step towards

that goal.”

Contractor soon sought for

Bromley redevelopment

THE CITY council is on track

to have a contract awarded for

the redevelopment of an odorous

organics processing plant in

Bromley by the middle of the

year.

Late last year the city council

decided to spend $21.5 million

redeveloping the plant to remove

the possibility of offensive and

objectionable dust and odour

travelling beyond the facility’s

boundary.

It comes after the city council

was served an abatement notice

from Environment Canterbury in

February requiring that it must

stop discharging the offensive

odour by January next year.

This week the procurement

plan for the project was approved

by the city council’s finance and

performance committee, clearing

the way for a request for proposal

to be released in the coming

weeks to selected contractors.

“We expect to be in a position

to select a preferred contractor

for the redevelopment in June

and to have the contract finalised

in July,’’ said city council resource

recovery manager Ross Trotter.

“We will then be in a position

to give the community firm timelines

for when work will begin

and how long it is likely to take

to complete the redevelopment

work.

“It is our expectation that work

will begin on site this year.’’

The redevelopment will involve

upgrading 18 aerated tunnels

where organic waste is turned

into compost, building a new,

fully-ventilated structure to

enclose the outside area where

compost is matured and screened

and upgrading the biofilter.

A community meeting where

Bromley residents can ask questions

about the redevelopment of

the organics processing plant will

be held at ECan’s Tuam St offices

on April 6, 6.30-8pm.

ECan staff, the city council

and Living Earth will be at the

meeting to answer residents’

questions.

New Linwood pool on track

for end of year opening

LINWOOD’S NEW pool

complex is starting to take shape.

The walls and roof of Te Pou

Toetoe: Linwood Pool have

gone up and contractors, Apollo

Projects Ltd, are now focusing

on constructing the inside of the

$22 million complex.

All the pools are in place and

the rooms are now being built.

There will be a multi-use 25m

lane pool, a deep-water manu/

splash pool, a family spa pool,

learn-to-swim pool, and a pool

for toddlers and water deck. It

will also have community meeting

rooms and a kitchen.

“Work on the facility is progressing

really well and we’re on

track to have it open later this

year,’’ city council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel

Cox said.

“We’ve started recruiting for

team leaders for the facility and

will advertise for frontline workers

– lifeguards, fitness instructors

and customer service people

– in May and June.

“We’re taking bookings now.

RESOURCE: Construction of the new Linwood swimming

pool is progressing.

Any groups that we haven’t

already spoken to who are

interested in booking space at Te

Pou Toetoe when it opens should

email the team to register their

interest. This will help us plan

how Te Pou Toetoe operates.

“Later this year, we will also

start taking bookings for

Swimsmart lessons at Te Pou

Toetoe,’’ Cox said.

principal Richard Edmundson

toured Te Pou Toetoe last week.

“How exciting to see such a

community-building resource

in the heart of our community,”

Edmundson said.

“Our children will really enjoy

and receive good learning from

Te Pou Toetoe, and then to hear

that the city council wishes to

employ local members of the

community as staff for this facility

– now that is the icing on the

cake.”

ESTUARY MATTERS

Fussy plant that has links to Captain Cook

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust

is a non-profit organisation formed to

protect one of New Zealand’s most

important coastal wetlands. Each week,

board members will discuss matters

regarding the estuary, its rich history

and what makes it unique. This week

manager Tanya Jenkins writes about a

trial to save native grass from extinction

THE ESTUARY trust is not

just encouraging estuary and

wetland restoration projects

for the protection of the

many bird species we can

find there.

Healthy and thriving

native plants are equally

important, for example.

Let’s look at a historically

famous plant – the Cook’s

Scurvy Grass, or known by

its Maori name “Nau.”

One of the famous stories

of Captain James Cook was

his ability to keep his crew

relatively healthy by feeding

them “greens” to ward off

scurvy that killed so many

sailors at the time.

Captain Cook was

renowned for his leadership

skills, and in particular for

sailing around the world

without losing a single

man to scurvy, for which he

won the Copley Medal in

1776.

He understood that fresh

food, and in particular fresh

greens, acted as an antiscorbutic

in keeping away

the scurvy disease.

Captain Cook and many

other earlier sailors used to

harvest huge amounts of

this plant from New Zealand

coastal areas.

But due to coastal

development, introduced

plants and animals, this

endemic (only found in

NZ) plant is now classed as

“threatened” and found only

sporadically throughout the

country.

In fact, now such a

concern for the threat of

its extinction, that the

Department of Conservation

prepared a Threatened Plant

Recovery Plan in 1998.

By trialling the

reintroduction of this plant

in a number of potentially

suitable areas it is hoped

that it will re-establish

itself.

Now, why is the estuary

trust so keen to share this

information?

Because we are so proud

to be able to share that this

plant has been introduced in

the Charlesworth Wetland

Reserve by DOC as a trial,

hoping it will survive and

thrive here.

And guess what? It’s

working. The few introduced

plants are doing well and is

spreading.

This fussy plant needs

gravelled, open coastal

areas, no competition from

introduced weeds, and

it needs to be occupied

regularly by seabirds who

leave the plant lots of guana,

or bird poo, to feed on.

The restored Charlesworth

Wetland islands are now

able to provide all this.

The grass Captain Cook used to gather to help prevent scurvy on his

ship.

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote

and complimentary appraisal of your

underfloor ground moisture barrier needs.

Phone 03 376 4608, 0508FOAMCO or www.

foamconcrete.nz for more information.

Bathroom ventilation

The extraction of air from the bathroom

should be a priority for all houses and

commercial buildings.

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity

of steam and odours. It is important

this compromised air does not circulate

around the house.

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant,

especially when near living, sleeping or

working areas.

The moisture generated by showers and

baths can be damaging to your home and

furnishings and be a major contribution

to condensation. Damp houses are not a

healthy environment for anyone to live in,

especially for children or other vulnerable

people.

By extracting air from the bathroom to

outside, warmer air from inside the house

will move in to the bathroom. Whereas

opening a window can draw cold air

into the bathroom and blow the smelly,

moisture laden

bathroom air into

the house.

Modern houses

are built to be

very airtight and

require mechanical

ventilation such

as extraction fans

or heat exchanger

systems. Although

older houses can

be draughty, the air

often flows in the

wrong direction.

Therefore, they also

usually require mechanical ventilation to

keep the air quality higher.

The quality of the air we breathe affects

our health and ability to perform. We

breathe in and out approximately 20,000

litres of air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air quality

indoors through adequate ventilation.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required extraction for your

bathrooms, and look into air exchange for

your whole building. Smooth-Air offers a

wide range of ventilation equipment, from

air vents to ducting for fans, for both the

commercial and domestic markets.

They have an extensive range of

fans and ventilation components

in-store but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to differing

requirements. You can contact Smooth-

Air on 0800 SMOOTH (0800 766684).
