Plan for safe cycling route<br />

• From page 1<br />

Over the past few months<br />

city council staff have been<br />

analysing the submissions,<br />

continuing to meet with<br />

businesses and submitters, and<br />

looking at design options to<br />

address as many of the issues<br />

raised as possible.<br />

The Wheels to Wings cycleway<br />

aims to provide a safe cycling<br />

route for people travelling<br />

through Papanui, Bishopdale,<br />

Harewood and in the airport<br />

area.<br />

About 7000 people work at the<br />

airport campus and the airport<br />

has reported that there is strong<br />

demand for safe cycling routes.<br />

It also provides benefits to the<br />

wider community through additional<br />

crossings for pedestrians<br />

and safety improvements at<br />

intersections.<br />

This cycleway is part of a network<br />

of cycleways that is being<br />

constructed to make it safer and<br />

easier to bike around Christchurch.<br />

“The public information days<br />

are an opportunity to discuss<br />

the feedback from consultation,<br />

share the design work we’ve been<br />

doing and for people to provide<br />

feedback on the additional work<br />

we’ve done,” said Ellis.<br />

“We’ll display all of the options<br />

we’ve considered including<br />

our preferred design that has<br />

incorporated the feedback we<br />

received.”<br />

ON DISPLAY: The city council’s proposed Wheels to Wings<br />

cycleway.<br />

“The extra information will<br />

also help people to prepare<br />

their comments to the hearings<br />

panel who will make a<br />

recommendation to the<br />

council.”<br />

Wheels to Wings cycleway information days will<br />

be held at the former Ara campus building in<br />

Bishopdale Mall on:<br />

Today, <strong>October</strong> <strong>28</strong>, noon to 7pm<br />

Tomorrow, 9am to 3pm<br />

helped secure an eighth win for<br />

Bev Morel when she skippered<br />

the Richmond Club’s fours team<br />

to the Clubs’ NZ South Island<br />

women’s fours tournament<br />

crown in Ashburton.<br />

Morel, who lives in Redwood,<br />

and her team of Jan Shirley,<br />

Theresa Woodham and Tania<br />

wind conditions to record a<br />

come-from-behind win,<br />

scoring 21-15 over Julie Dalley’s<br />

Hornby Club team of Liz<br />

Rossiter, Kay Wallace and<br />

Sonia Butler.<br />

Thursday <strong>October</strong> <strong>28</strong> <strong>2021</strong><br />

Dalley’s team had looked<br />

promising for the first 10 ends<br />

leading 12-6 but Morel’s team<br />

fought back, buoyed on by a<br />

four and a five on the 14 th and<br />

16 th ends, to move away to a<br />

comfortable win by five shots by<br />

the 18 th end.<br />

For Morel, this was the closest<br />

margin she and her team had<br />

faced over the four previous<br />

matches during the tournament,<br />

her earlier wins were 22-9, 21-13<br />

and 25-14.<br />

The annual club tournament<br />

attracted 44 entries from around<br />

the South Island.<br />

meditative paintings sent all over the world.<br />

‘This collection of paintings has been inspired by a seven day<br />

boat trip in Fiordland that I went on last <strong>October</strong> 2020. This Kotare watching the incoming tide<br />

complete contrast of landscape to most of the rest of New Zealand,<br />

has started my journey of exploration into these paintings.<br />

The wild Southern Ocean acts as a protective barrier to the rugged<br />

land of the fiords.<br />

A vast place of vertical steep land, dense forest and huge volumes<br />

of precipitation and very few landing spots have saved this extensive<br />

area from exploitation.’<br />
