winds up<br />

because of<br />

volunteer<br />

shortage<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

THERE IS a call for more creative<br />

thinking around small community<br />

transport as a volunteer bus service<br />

comes to an end.<br />

Ongoing restrictions, an<br />

uncertain future and a lack of<br />

volunteers has meant GovBus will<br />

no longer operate.<br />

GovBus is an electric 5-seater<br />

car, manned and operated by<br />

volunteers, which runs as a shuttle<br />

service from Governors <strong>Bay</strong> to the<br />

city.<br />

The Governors <strong>Bay</strong> Community<br />

Transport Trust was established<br />

in 2013 and started operating<br />

the service in 2014, with support<br />

from Environment Canterbury,<br />

as an alternative to regular public<br />

transport.<br />

The service has been reliant<br />

on the availability of volunteer<br />

drivers and operates through a<br />

pre-booking system administered<br />

by Jeanette Stanley.<br />

Stanley said running the service<br />

became “increasingly difficult”<br />

due to lockdowns, ongoing<br />

restrictions and trouble sourcing<br />

volunteer drivers.<br />

COLLAPSED, vandalised and<br />

of no use to anyone – the seating<br />

along the Esplanade is in a “poor<br />

state”.<br />

There have been calls for the<br />

deteriorating wooden seats to be<br />

replaced.<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board member<br />

Darrell Latham<br />

raised the issue<br />

of the state of<br />

the seating along<br />

Sumner’s Esplanade,<br />

between<br />

Cave Rock and<br />

Scarborough.<br />

“Much of the<br />

bench seating is<br />

Latham<br />

well past its use-by date, and<br />

more comfortable and durable<br />

seating needs to be considered as<br />

the Coastal Pathway progresses<br />

towards completion,” said<br />

Latham.<br />

Stumps of concrete remain<br />

where the bench seating used<br />

to be.<br />

“Other seating has been<br />

repaired; however, many are<br />

warped and are not good examples<br />

of comfortable seating or<br />

may present health and safety<br />

issues due to rusted structures,”<br />

said Latham.<br />

The board discussed seeking<br />

further advice from the city<br />

council on potential solutions<br />

for the seating.<br />

Board member and Coastal<br />

Pathway committee member<br />

Tim Lindley told the board a<br />

potential solution could be to<br />

use money left over from the final<br />

stage of the Coastal Pathway<br />

project on new seating.<br />

Said Latham: “Many<br />

a limited service which we felt<br />

didn’t meet the needs of our<br />

community. We felt we had no<br />

other option than to wind up the<br />

Enemy at the Gates<br />

Part of A Mitch Rapp Novel<br />

By Vince Flynn and Kyle Mills<br />

The latest compulsive thriller in the New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series.<br />

America is reeling from the national blackout that swept the nation, continuing to dig out<br />

of the power outage. And the new president is unlike any Mitch has worked with in the<br />

past; he is extremely dictatorial and sees cracks in America’s democratic institutions that<br />

he believes can be exploited to put his family in power permanently.<br />

As Mitch backs away from the new president, he, in turn, questions Rapp’s loyalty. Mitch<br />

decides to take a much needed break and moves to his house in Cape Town, where<br />

he gets pulled into a job with Nicholas Ward, the world’s first trillionaire. It has been<br />

discovered that there is a mole in the CIA who’s been digging through their systems<br />

for information on Ward so, after thwarting an attempt to kidnap him Uganda, Mitch<br />

makes it look like the abduction was successful. The hope is that this will give Rapp the<br />

freedom to track down the person who has been able to gain such deep access into the<br />

CIA’s mainframe.<br />

Rapp, completely cut off from the agency, must uncover the identity of the mole and<br />

deal with him. But the situation is deeper and more complex than he ever could have<br />

imagined, involving the President of the United States himself.<br />

‘I looked up and thought oh s**t’<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

THE LYTTELTON division two<br />

rugby team experienced a new<br />

kind of attack on their back<br />

line on Saturday when an<br />

unexpected hang glider crashlanded<br />

in the middle of their<br />

game.<br />

About <strong>30</strong> minutes into The<br />

Dolphins’ first pre-season game<br />

against Hurunui, came a yell<br />

from the sideline: “Look out!”<br />

“I just looked up and thought<br />

oh s**t what is this, then I<br />

realised it was a hang glider, he<br />

was coming in pretty hot. At one<br />

stage I thought he was going to<br />

go straight into our back line,”<br />

head coach Alex Ryan said.<br />

Dolphins second-five Ben<br />

Tuetue managed to duck just<br />

in time as the hang glider pilot<br />

swooped over the top of him and<br />

crash landed face first on the<br />

field.<br />

“Initially we were worried Ben<br />

was going to get hit because they<br />

were all concentrating on the<br />

game but then people started<br />

yelling out,” said Ryan.<br />

There had been hang gliders<br />

landing on the field earlier in the<br />

day. The man who crash-landed<br />

didn’t realise a game was being<br />

played, Ryan said.<br />

The glider pilot was physically<br />

unharmed, the same perhaps<br />

can not be said for his pride as<br />

he struggled to make his way<br />

off the field to cheers and laughs<br />

from onlookers.<br />

“It was a bit of a distraction<br />

but we all had a good laugh, it<br />

was classic,” Ryan said.<br />

The Dolphins hope to go all<br />

the way this year and take out<br />

the division two competition<br />

after two years of close losses in<br />

the finals.<br />

“We punch above our weight<br />

in terms of club rugby. LYT<br />

culture has a lot of history, it’s a<br />

family, brothers. We hope to go<br />

one further this year and take it<br />

out,” Ryan said.<br />

The team, known for<br />

having as much fun off the field<br />

as on, is hoping to welcome<br />

some new players to the club this<br />

year.<br />

New wharf plan details revealed<br />

A CONCEPT design to replace<br />

the 134-year-old Akaroa Wharf<br />

will be presented to the Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board on<br />

Monday.<br />

The concept design, which the<br />

public and stakeholders were<br />

consulted on in January, will see<br />

the wharf rebuilt in the same location<br />

and of the same length as<br />

the existing wharf (155m), with<br />

concrete piles and structure and<br />

timber decking.<br />

Its deck would be raised about<br />

0.60m from the present height<br />

to account for sea level rise and<br />

the width increased from 7.3m<br />

to 8m, whilst an additional<br />

pontoon structure will bring the<br />

total number to three.<br />

It is proposed the wharf would<br />

continue to provide access to<br />

fuel, and future provision for<br />

electrical charging is being considered.<br />

The city council is working<br />

with commercial wharf users on<br />

how they can continue to operate<br />

during the replacement works.<br />

Akaroa Fishermens Association<br />

president John Wright spoke<br />

to the community board about<br />

the issue in a previous meeting.<br />

He said the economic livelihood<br />

of commercial wharf users<br />

is critical to the wellbeing of the<br />

community.<br />

Wright said providing a<br />

temporary structure should have<br />

been a priority and he felt there<br />

was a better alternative to the<br />

city council’s proposed rebuild of<br />

Drummonds jetty.<br />

He put forth an option that<br />

would see the new wharf still<br />

built in the vicinity of Church<br />

St and the Britomart area, but<br />

not in the exact location of the<br />

present wharf. Wright said people<br />

could then make use of the<br />

many existing amenities on the<br />

old wharf while the replacement<br />

work was being undertaken.<br />

Work on a replacement wharf<br />

has been under way since a<br />

structural assessment of the<br />

iconic landmark in late 2018<br />

found it was reaching the end of<br />

Andrew<br />

Rutledge<br />

its viable life and it was no longer<br />

economical to keep repairing<br />

and maintaining it.<br />

City council<br />

head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge<br />

said the finalised<br />

concept design<br />

has been developed<br />

following<br />

a consultation<br />

process and its<br />

completion will<br />

provide certainty for commercial<br />

operators, building owners and<br />

the public.<br />

“This is the result of extensive<br />

discussion with the community<br />

and stakeholders about what<br />

of an era<br />

NEW: The<br />

concept<br />

design will<br />

see the wharf<br />

rebuilt in the<br />

same location<br />

and of the<br />

same length<br />

as the existing<br />

wharf.<br />

they want to see in the new<br />

structure. It has been a threeyear<br />

process and I know that<br />

those involved will be keen to get<br />

the next stages get underway.<br />

“Providing the plan is approved,<br />

detailed design work<br />

can follow on. This will include<br />

considering the reuse of existing<br />

wharf materials for elements<br />

such as seating. We will also be<br />

continuing to work with commercial<br />

operators on the wharf<br />

infrastructure and pontoon<br />

location.”<br />

Funding of $19.1m for the<br />

Akaroa Wharf project has been<br />

AS THE Hollywood Theatre is<br />

now to change hands and as a<br />

patron of it and the Stage Door, as<br />

it was previously known, I wish<br />

to commemorate Maureen, late<br />

wife of Lang Masters, who jointly<br />

ran the theatre unwaveringly and<br />

diligently supporting her husband<br />

over all the years they owned it.<br />

Her gracious, friendly welcome<br />

to patrons at the ticket office was<br />

an important part of the theatre’s<br />

charm.<br />

I am sure there are many in<br />

the <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> area who would<br />

support me in remembrance of<br />

a lovely lady who added value to<br />

our community.<br />

Thank you Maureen for our<br />

warm memories.<br />

Repairs under way on<br />

storm-ravaged road<br />

EXEMPLARY: Ross Gillespie (left) and Roger France were<br />

awarded certificates by president Paul Goodman, in<br />

recognition of their contribution to Sumner Ferrymead<br />

Probus.<br />

Life members inducted<br />

THE SUMNER Ferrymead<br />

Probus Club has made life<br />

members of two of its longeststanding<br />

participants.<br />

Ross Gillespie joined the<br />

old Sumner Probus Club in<br />

2000 and from 2005 served as<br />

secretary and later treasurer,<br />

and newsletter editor for nine<br />

years. Ross worked in his family’s<br />

timber business and has assisted<br />

with the Meals on Wheels<br />

program.<br />

He represented New Zealand<br />

at two Hockey World Cups and<br />

four Olympic Games, coaching<br />

the 1976 gold-medal-winning<br />

team in Montreal that was later<br />

inducted into the NZ Sports<br />

Hall of Fame. In 1976, Ross was<br />

awarded an MBE for services to<br />

hockey.<br />

Roger France has been a<br />

Probus member since 2006,<br />

and has served the Sumner and<br />

Ferrymead club as co-ordinator<br />

of its speaker programme, vice<br />

president and then president.<br />

During his tenure the membership<br />

grew to 97 and has remained<br />

at about that level since.<br />

Roger was a senior aeronautical<br />

engineer with Air New Zealand<br />

and trained engineers around<br />

the world. He has been a member<br />

of Round Table and served as<br />

commodore of the Christchurch<br />

Yacht Club.<br />

REPAIRS ARE under way on<br />

storm-damaged Goughs <strong>Bay</strong> Rd,<br />

near Akaroa.<br />

With a clear plan and design<br />

now in place, work has begun on<br />

the realignment and repair of the<br />

badly damaged road.<br />

The damage occurred after<br />

significant rainfall in December.<br />

City council contractors<br />

have been working to complete<br />

dropout repairs, remove slips and<br />

install road metal over the past<br />

three weeks.<br />

“A priority for<br />

our contractors is<br />

to ensure the work<br />

is able to be completed<br />

safely,” said<br />

city council head of<br />

Lynette<br />

Ellis<br />

transport Lynette<br />

Ellis.<br />

“There are two<br />

areas where water<br />

was found to be flowing through<br />

the hillside and under the main<br />

dropout. This has now been fixed<br />

with subsoil drains, allowing the<br />

water to exit the hillside without<br />

compromising the stability of the<br />

repair work.”<br />

Contractors have completed<br />

the repair of the main road dropout<br />

and rock scaling above the<br />

main slip.<br />

ACCESS: Work is being carried out on Goughs <strong>Bay</strong> Rd, near<br />

Akaroa, following the December storm event.<br />

The 4WD track between Paua<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> and Goughs <strong>Bay</strong> is now complete,<br />

allowing residents to enter<br />

and exit the bay safely.<br />

The new alignment is expected<br />

to take six-to-eight weeks to<br />

complete.<br />

“This timeframe will be subject<br />

to the weather and general site<br />

difficulties, as well as the potential<br />

impacts of Covid-19 on the<br />

workforce,” Ellis said.<br />

The road remains closed to all<br />

non-residents and landowners.<br />

We’re sticking to<br />

our game plan<br />

ADVERTISING<br />

With consultation now open on the Draft<br />

Annual Plan <strong>2022</strong>/23, Christchurch City Council<br />

is encouraging people to share their views on<br />

whether its budget strikes the right chord.<br />

The Draft Annual Plan outlines what the Council<br />

plans to spend on projects and day-to-day services<br />

over the coming financial year and how the work<br />

will be financed.<br />

Since our Long Term Plan (LTP) 2021–31 was<br />

confirmed last year, the economic environment<br />

in Ōtautahi Christchurch has been affected by<br />

the same factors the whole world is navigating as<br />

we live with COVID-19 – inflation, supply chain<br />

issues, productivity challenges and more. We<br />

also have significant Government reforms on the<br />

horizon.<br />

Striking the right balance<br />

Our books are balanced and we’re committed<br />

to doing the basics and doing them well whilst<br />

keeping costs as low as possible for ratepayers.<br />

In line with residents’ feedback we’ve prioritised<br />

spending on our water supply network, our<br />

transport network including roads and footpaths<br />

and our facilities. All this has been considered<br />

through the lens of climate change.<br />

We’re in a changing environment and being<br />

realistic about what we can deliver has been key<br />

to this budget. We’ve reviewed the whole capital<br />

programme with a focus on deliverability and<br />

affordability – if we’re not likely to be able to<br />

complete<br />

the work<br />

in <strong>2022</strong>/23,<br />

there’s no<br />

need to charge the ratepayer right now.<br />

The main proposals in the Draft Annual Plan<br />

<strong>2022</strong>/23<br />

• An average proposed rates increase for a<br />

typical household of 4.86%. A typical house is<br />

one with a capital value of $508,608.<br />

• An overall average rate increase across all<br />

ratepayers of 4.96% – slightly less than the<br />

4.97% indicated in the LTP.<br />

• Operational expenditure of $527.5 million and<br />

capital expenditure of $615.5 million.<br />

• Borrowing for the capital programme is $54<br />

million less than planned.<br />

We’re also consulting on other matters which affect<br />

our budget, including a proposed rate increase<br />

on vacant central city land, and some proposed<br />

changes to our kerbside collection service.<br />

Finding the right balance together<br />

Creating a budget for a growing city like<br />

Christchurch is always a balancing act – we think<br />

we have that balance right, but before we can say<br />

that, we need to know what the community thinks.<br />

Visit ccc.govt.nz/annualplan for all the details, and<br />

to have your say by 18 April.<br />

All the feedback will be considered by councillors<br />

before we finalise the budget in June.

BUSINESS IN the front, party in the back.<br />

The promise of a mullet is all it took for<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> locals to put hands in<br />

pockets.<br />

It’s business as usual for Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> Four Square owner James Grant<br />

– but with a new hair cut that has so far<br />

raised $2700 for the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade, and put a smile on<br />

locals’ faces.<br />

The owners of the small store, Grant and<br />

his partner Laura Palmer wanted to cheer<br />

their customers up with something a little<br />

lighthearted while raising money for the<br />

fire brigade.<br />

Grant was well overdue a haircut and<br />

agreed that firefighter Jeremy Palmer<br />

could cut his hair into a mullet if they hit<br />

the goal of raising $2000 in two weeks.<br />

Donations flooded in as updates<br />

and photos on the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Community Facebook page kept locals<br />

entertained.<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> fire chief Bob Palmer<br />

felt humbled by the community support.<br />

“It just really shows what a great<br />

community we’ve got. We’re lucky to have<br />

people like James and Laura with their fun<br />

fundraisers,” Palmer said.<br />

The Four Square also donated fresh<br />

oysters to new fish and chip shop Salt,<br />

which battered and sold the oysters then<br />

donated the funds back to the mullet<br />

fundraiser.<br />

“It’s the little things like that that make<br />

us so proud of our community,” said<br />

Palmer.<br />

With the latest total coming to $2700<br />

and a video showing off Grant’s new do,<br />

locals on the community page said<br />

they felt they had got their money’s<br />

worth.<br />

community effort<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

FOUR YEARS of community fundraising<br />

has paid off for the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade as it welcomes a<br />

new edition to its fleet.<br />

A Toyota Land Cruiser four-wheel-drive<br />

double cab, with a specially designed tray<br />

for all the fire brigade needs, arrived in<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> over the weekend.<br />

Over the past four years, the community<br />

has been working to raise the $120,000<br />

needed for the purpose-built vehicle.<br />

Fire brigade volunteers will now be able<br />

to drive over rugged terrain and reach<br />

areas they have previously had to get to by<br />

foot.<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Four Square owners<br />

James Grant and Laura Palmer were key to<br />

the fundraising efforts, including organising<br />

a ‘Big Quiz’ that kick-started things,<br />

with over $15,000 raised.<br />

This, along with both large and small<br />

donations, funding raising such as cake<br />

stalls, barbecues and mullet hair cuts,<br />

helped to reach the total.<br />

One woman even donated $10,000<br />

anonymously.<br />

“So many people have got on board<br />

over the last few years to support us,” said<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> fire chief Bob Palmer.<br />

“We’re blown away really,”<br />

More equipment will be added over<br />

time with the leftover money, including a<br />

thermal imaging camera.

New<br />

shipping<br />

service<br />

calls to<br />

Port<br />

LPC welcomes the muchanticipated<br />

addition of ZIM<br />

line’s first call to the South<br />

Island. The first vessel in the<br />

service, CONTSHIP ONO,<br />

arrived in February, then<br />

continued its route to Napier.<br />

Lyttelton will be one of five stops for the<br />

line, with the route also including Auckland<br />

and Napier in New Zealand and Australia’s<br />

Sydney and Melbourne ports.<br />

With transshipment available in Sydney<br />

to ports in China and Southeast Asia, it gives<br />

Canterbury exporters a streamlined option to<br />

get their goods to global markets.<br />

LPC’s General Manager Container<br />

Operations Simon Munt says that, as the<br />

busiest South Island container port, the ZIM<br />

service will only enhance LPC’s offering.<br />

“Combined with our ongoing<br />

infrastructure investment, LPC continues to<br />

support freight growth in the region.”<br />

The ZIM service, arriving in Lyttelton<br />

every three weeks, will provide flexibility<br />

and reliability to Canterbury and the wider<br />

South Island market, especially as the effects<br />

of COVID-19 continue to impact global<br />

supply chains. ISS-McKay General Manager<br />

David Mitchell says they are happy to be here<br />

in Lyttelton, wanting to support the<br />

Christchurch market and grow with them.<br />

“Going forward, we are planning to make<br />

our visits more regular. I think a lot of people<br />

just think we are here for the short- term<br />

gain, but we’re here to stay. We’re going great,<br />

and if we had more vessels, then we would<br />

put them into Lyttelton.<br />

“We are agile, we are people-focused<br />

and that resonates with the New Zealand<br />

market,” says David.<br />

The new line, which will service both dry<br />

and refrigerated containers, demonstrates<br />

the power of Canterbury’s growing economy,<br />

and we look forward to what the future holds<br />

for ZIM in the South Island.<br />

Five months in, and LPC’s new<br />

Permit Office is striving to<br />

take safety to the next level.<br />

OUR PEOPLE<br />

Sparking<br />

a lifelong<br />

career<br />

When Euan started painting<br />

cranes as a student in 1981,<br />

he didn’t know that would<br />

be the start of a lifelong<br />

career at LPC.<br />

Now our Electrical Foreman, Euan has spent<br />

the past 40 years at LPC and, unsurprisingly,<br />

has seen some great changes.<br />

“I left school to start an electrician<br />

apprenticeship with the Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Board, which took me four years.<br />

“We looked after the electrical reticulation<br />

for the wharves, the offices and our<br />

equipment like the crane and tugs.<br />

“Back then, we still had steam-powered<br />

equipment, with teams shoving coal in to<br />

keep it going,” says Euan.<br />

Euan moved into the foreman role after<br />

the earthquake in 2012, stepping up to help<br />

everyone get through the challenges ahead.<br />

“I think that’s what’s been good about this<br />

position. Understanding the management<br />

side was a challenge at first, but having<br />

worked here for so long, I really understand<br />

both sides of the relationship, which has<br />

helped me a lot,” says Euan.<br />

Another one of Euan’s biggest challenges is<br />

how the industry has advanced.<br />

“Our changes aren’t small. We move<br />

forward in a way that we have leaps and<br />

bounds with technology.<br />

“The Port is always modernising, which<br />

means, new plant, new berths and new<br />

projects.”<br />

For Euan, that’s one of the things that’s<br />

kept him here all these years.<br />

“There is always something to learn, and<br />

LPC is great at giving myself and the team<br />

opportunities to train and to pick up new<br />

skills,” says Euan.<br />

A highlight for Euan was going to Ireland<br />

for three weeks to learn about our ship to<br />

shore container cranes.<br />

“About 15 years ago, I went over to spend<br />

time at Liebherr to train with their team so<br />

I could support the new crane builds back in<br />

Lyttelton.<br />

“It felt great when the company chose me<br />

to go over. That was an amazing experience,”<br />

says Euan.<br />

Looking to the future, sustainability has<br />

also become a part of Euan’s role.<br />

“There’s a need to monitor our<br />

consumption to help us understand how we<br />

use power at the Port. It’s been interesting<br />

working with different teams here and<br />

across our stakeholders to help support our<br />

sustainability targets,” says Euan.<br />

Another thing Euan loves about the Port is<br />

the people.<br />

“The team here really<br />

goes the distance.<br />

In what can be a highpressure<br />

environment,<br />

we always get the job<br />

done and make things<br />

work – they take a lot<br />

of pride in that.”<br />

As someone who was raised in Lyttelton,<br />

Euan has always had a connection to<br />

the Port.<br />

“It helps drive me to do my best work. I<br />

know how important the Port is, and it’s great<br />

knowing that all the hard work I put in now<br />

will benefit people in the future.<br />

“Knowing that, when you walk away, you’ve<br />

built it to a high standard, built it to last,<br />

that’s a pretty great feeling,” says Euan.<br />

LPC's Infrastructure<br />

Services team provide<br />

a cage for a Port User<br />

to significantly reduce<br />

possible fall risks.<br />

Part of the Authority to Work programme,<br />

our Permit Office is a central hub for all Port<br />

users and contractors who will be completing<br />

work across any of our sites.<br />

Businesses coming on site to carry out<br />

work need to first apply to the Permit Office<br />

so we can have a clear understanding of<br />

when and where the work is taking place.<br />

The concept is rooted in health and safety,<br />

with the new visibility allowing us to work<br />

alongside contractors to make sure best<br />

practice is taking place across LPC’s sites.<br />

Permit Officer Sam Hart says the<br />

Authority to Work programme has made<br />

a huge difference in managing high-risk<br />

activity across the Port.<br />

“The thing to remember is that the Port<br />

is a really busy environment, with multiple<br />

activities happening every day – whether<br />

it’s operating a crane in the inner harbour<br />

or completing pavement works in our new<br />

eastern development.<br />

“This new system allows us to have an<br />

overview of where work will be happening<br />

to prevent conflicts of works and help<br />

businesses complete their jobs safely.”<br />

With 170 permits issued in January alone,<br />

Port users’ uptake to the programme is<br />

pleasing to see.<br />

“At first, there were a few nerves around<br />

the system, but it really has improved LPC’s<br />

relationship with Port users, and now we’re<br />

finding a lot of people are becoming more<br />

proactive, which is awesome to see,” Sam says.<br />

This oversight also allows us to bring in our<br />

subject matter experts when needed and even<br />

stop work happening if we think it’s unsafe.<br />

Health and safety will always be a priority<br />

at LPC, and we are proud to continue to<br />

support our Port users and create a safe<br />

environment for everyone who works here.<br />

first day at Ports of<br />

Auckland.<br />

PORT NEWS<br />

Operating<br />

at red<br />

After 2 years at the helm, CEO Roger Gray has now spent his last<br />

PORT NEWS<br />

day at LPC. Roger is an important part of the LPC whānau, and<br />

we wish him the best for his next journey as he takes on the<br />

role of CEO of Ports of Auckland.<br />

“I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved<br />

in the two years that I’ve been CEO here at<br />

LPC,” says Roger.<br />

“We have exceeded our targets, which<br />

is a demonstration of the hard work that<br />

happens at the Port.”<br />

Through his time in Lyttelton, Roger has<br />

overseen the beginnings of a workplace<br />

culture transformation, huge investment<br />

in infrastructure including the new eastern<br />

development and record-breaking container<br />

volumes through the terminal.<br />

“We made a commitment to improve<br />

our profitability, and I think we’re doing a<br />

fantastic job towards that. We are seeing<br />

record volumes through the Port, and I’m<br />

deeply confident that we are in the right<br />

position to continue this,” says Roger.<br />

Roger says another highlight was the work<br />

being done around the Maria Dew QC report<br />

and workplace culture changes.<br />

“Culture and the change journey that we’re<br />

on with whanaungatanga is complicated and<br />

challenging. But I’ve been amazingly proud<br />

of the way so many of us have joined in and<br />

said, yes, we want to make this place better<br />

and we can.<br />

“The thing I’m probably most proud of is<br />

our commitment to High Performance High<br />

Engagement (HPHE) and the fact that we<br />

have signed with three of our unions and<br />

we’re committed to moving forward in a<br />

cooperative manner where we work with our<br />

collective interests at heart and we get stuff<br />

done for the benefit of everybody,” says Roger.<br />

“I will thoroughly miss working in the<br />

beautiful harbour, as well as all the people I<br />

have met along the way. Lyttelton is a strong<br />

community, and it’s been fantastic to see their<br />

support for our operations and the work we<br />

do to be a good neighbour,” says Roger.<br />

In his final farewells to LPC employees,<br />

Roger says that the reality is we are all just<br />

stewards of the Port.<br />

“The Port was here long before we arrived,<br />

and it will certainly be here long after we<br />

leave so be proud of our history, be proud of<br />

what you’re doing and also look forward to<br />

the future,” says Roger.<br />

In December, the Board announced then<br />

GM of People and Safety Kirstie Gardener as<br />

acting CEO, and she will continue in this role<br />

while the recruitment process for a new CEO<br />

takes place.<br />

“ The Port was<br />

here long<br />

before we<br />

arrived, and it<br />

will certainly<br />

be here long<br />

after we leave<br />

so be proud of<br />

our history, be<br />

proud of what<br />

you’re doing<br />

and also look<br />

forward to<br />

the future,”<br />

says Roger.<br />

As the national response to<br />

COVID-19 adapts and evolves,<br />

LPC continues to reposition<br />

ourselves to ensure we are<br />

doing everything we can to<br />

protect our workforce and the<br />

wider community.<br />

We recognise our role in Canterbury’s supply<br />

chain, and with the increasing number of<br />

community cases, our COVID-19 response<br />

team works hard to understand how we can<br />

ensure the Port remains operational with<br />

Omicron in the community.<br />

The health and safety of our teams<br />

remains our top priority, with our focus on<br />

reducing the spread. To enable this, we have<br />

separated working groups, reduced contact<br />

between different departments, increased<br />

mask use and supported working from home.<br />

Earlier this year, we also took another<br />

step in our layers of protection by requiring<br />

everyone entering LPC to be fully vaccinated.<br />

Taking effect on 31 January <strong>2022</strong>, the new<br />

requirements mean that visitors, contractors,<br />

truck drivers and Port users have to provide<br />

a vaccine pass to be allowed entry across all<br />

our sites.<br />

This requirement comes after the same was<br />

required of all LPC staff in November 2021.<br />

LPC UPDATE <strong>March</strong> <strong>2022</strong> 3


ENVIRONMENT<br />

Fanworm:<br />

an immediate<br />

response<br />

After identifying growing<br />

numbers of marine pest<br />

fanworms in Whakaraupō,<br />

LPC joined with the Whaka<br />

Ora Healthy <strong>Harbour</strong> project<br />

to put into place an immediate<br />

response action plan.<br />

Three months on, and the swift response has<br />

seen 883 fanworms removed from the inner<br />

harbour.<br />

The pest poses a significant ecological<br />

threat to native biodiversity, mahinga kai and<br />

commercial marine farming operations.<br />

The response was carried out by a<br />

combination of divers at LPC and Diving<br />

Services New Zealand, who were funded by<br />

Whaka Ora.<br />

Together, they tackled phase one, targeting<br />

five key areas identified in previous surveys.<br />

LPC Environmental Business Partner<br />

Kirsty Brennan says the efforts to date are<br />

going to have a significant impact on the<br />

fanworm population.<br />

“Of the 883 worms that were removed,<br />

83% were of reproductive size, which is the<br />

ideal timing as it makes it difficult for any<br />

remaining worms to be successful.<br />

“It’s been great to get a better<br />

understanding of the spread of the fanworm<br />

to know where we need to target next,” says<br />

Kirsty.<br />

With Diving Services New Zealand also<br />

coming on board, the harbour has benefited<br />

from the use of a remotely operated vehicle<br />

(ROV).<br />

The ROV was a great tool for reaching<br />

areas that were unsafe for the dive teams<br />

such as our decommissioned wharves.<br />

Although COVID-19 has slowed down the<br />

response, LPC is gearing up for phase two.<br />

It is important that we carry on this work,<br />

surveying and clearing the remaining areas.<br />

LPC remains committed to the response,<br />

with the long-term surveying led by<br />

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and<br />

Environment Canterbury.<br />

“A partnership framework for marine<br />

biosecurity that allows for early detection<br />

and response to marine biosecurity issues is<br />

vital in the long-term success of this project,”<br />

says Kirsty.<br />

Clean Marina<br />

Pledge takes<br />

next steps<br />

Having taken the Clean<br />

Marina Pledge, Te Ana<br />

Marina is committed to<br />

keeping the water around<br />

it clean and healthy.<br />

To aid in this, the team has implemented a<br />

new water quality monitoring programme to<br />

learn more about what’s in the water around<br />

the marina.<br />

The pledge is an internationally<br />

recognised standard that dedicates Te Ana to<br />

creating and administering environmental<br />

management systems that promote a healthy<br />

and vibrant environment.<br />

Marina Manager Matt Blythe says the<br />

testing will help us look at the water over<br />

time to ensure we expand on the positive<br />

impact we have.<br />

“We want to protect the coastal and<br />

marine environment and support marine life,<br />

especially as Te Ana continues to grow.<br />

Currently, nine sites are monitored twice<br />

a week.<br />

Environmental Business Partner Kirsty<br />

Brennan says parameters such as dissolved<br />

oxygen and pH levels are measured using<br />

hand-held instruments as well as samples<br />

that are analysed in a lab for suspended<br />

sediment dissolved metals, faecal bacteria,<br />

and nutrients.<br />

“Collecting the results over a long period of<br />

time can indicate when something is causing<br />

the environment to change and will help<br />

identify areas of pollution.”<br />

“There are a range of activities that can<br />

impact water quality, including runoff from<br />

recreational vessels and industrial activities<br />

as well as shipping and tidal movements,”<br />

says Kirsty<br />

“We are also looking to understand more<br />

about how rain events impact the water<br />

quality by delivering sediment, nutrients and<br />

other pollutants into the harbour.”<br />

The Clean Marina Pledge also extends<br />

outside of the water and looks at things like<br />

waste management, pests and weeds, and<br />

biodiversity.<br />

“The marina is a wonderful place for the<br />

community to spend time, and I want to<br />

make sure we are giving them a clean and<br />

healthy place to relax,” says Matt.<br />

“This programme is a great start to have<br />

some tangible results and taking the next<br />

step in our knowledge.”<br />

“ It’s been<br />

fantastic to<br />

have support<br />

from teams<br />

across LPC<br />

as well as the<br />

community,<br />

who all<br />

recognise the<br />

importance<br />

of this work.”<br />

Upsizing to your next home: How to be smart about it<br />

THE HOUSING boom of 2021<br />

has meant many Kiwis have<br />

benefited from huge capital gains,<br />

and now have the opportunity to<br />

capitalise on the equity in their<br />

existing home.<br />

And Covid-19 has certainly<br />

drilled home the need for space.<br />

Upsizing can mean different<br />

things to different people. Some<br />

might want a rumpus room for<br />

a teen who is at uni, while others<br />

might want somewhere with<br />

office space, or perhaps a property<br />

with land where they can add a<br />

self-contained space.<br />

Before you start looking for<br />

a bigger home, ask yourself<br />

how you want to live and what<br />

will make a real difference?<br />

Additionally, consider whether<br />

you want to move or to renovate<br />

your existing home to create<br />

space.<br />

15<br />

What gives the feeling of<br />

a larger home?<br />

Think about how big your<br />

family is, do you have a dog,<br />

children, will you have visitors<br />

coming to stay, and do you know<br />

what you need the extra space<br />

for?<br />

The success of the upsizing<br />

process is often about the extra<br />

living areas.<br />

Good, well-considered<br />

design, and a family room with<br />

more sought after than an extra<br />

bedroom.<br />

Choosing to renovate<br />

your home<br />

If for you, upsizing means<br />

renovating your home, make sure<br />

you consider separation of space.<br />

This could mean a living room<br />

in a separate wing, a large sit-in<br />

kitchen, sliding doors to separate<br />

external spaces or a tucked-away<br />

media room.<br />

Your furniture choices can<br />

do a lot to perceived space – for<br />

example, soft furnishings and<br />

heavy drapery help to give it a<br />

homey feel and mirrors can make<br />

a small house feel bigger than it<br />

is by reflecting and, therefore,<br />

replicating the view.<br />

And remember, good light,<br />

double glazing, and insulation all<br />

add to the feeling of space, as do<br />

ceiling heights.<br />

263 x 180<br />

a separate lounge, are generally<br />

New developments are<br />

maximising space and<br />

comfort<br />

When upsizing to a new<br />

development, you are coming<br />

to homes that are designed in a<br />

way to use every single square<br />

metre.<br />

The attention to detail is second<br />

to none, with quirky nooks and<br />

spaces such as rooftop gardens<br />

and elevated patios.<br />

Developers are trying to give a<br />

sense of space and light, even<br />

when the square meterage is not<br />

excessive.<br />

First world champs for junior surfer<br />

•From page 1<br />

Tyro, the under 16 boys division<br />

national champion, will<br />

make his debut on the team.<br />

“It’s just crazy to think a few<br />

years ago I was stoked to even<br />

get into the Canterbury team<br />

and now to think I’m in the New<br />

Zealand team is amazing’” said<br />

Tyro.<br />

He’s looking forward the experience<br />

and having the opportunity<br />

to verse some of the best<br />

surfers in the world.<br />

“It’s quite a bit of pressure but<br />

it’s really just an honour,” he said.<br />

It will be Henderson’s second<br />

appearance on the team, this<br />

year for the under 18 girls<br />

division.<br />

Henderson said it feels “super<br />

sick” to be picked for the team.<br />

“It’s such an honour to represent<br />

New Zealand overseas in<br />

the sport that I love. I also feel<br />

as though all the hard work over<br />

the years has paid off,” she said.<br />

In 2019, when she was just<br />

13, Henderson went to California<br />

for the world junior surfing<br />

championships.<br />

“I’m excited to compete<br />

in worlds again as I feel I’ve<br />

matured heaps and can use my<br />

knowledge from last time to<br />

hopefully do better,” said Henderson.<br />

Henderson said she was looking<br />

forward to travelling to a<br />

new country to represent New<br />

Zealand alongside some of her<br />

best mates.<br />

“And surfing warm waves.<br />

Should be a fun trip and it will<br />

be my first time competing overseas<br />

in what feels like forever,”<br />

she said.<br />

This will be the first time the<br />

junior team has been away since<br />

2019 and the first world junior<br />

championships to take place<br />

since the pandemic started.<br />

The team will compete at the<br />

<strong>2022</strong> Surf City El Salvador ISA<br />

championships from May 27 to<br />

June 5.<br />

It is the largest junior surfing<br />

event in the world, playing host<br />

to more than 340 surfers from 44<br />

nations in <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Rising talent keeps Sumner rugby strong<br />

THE SUMNER Wave opens<br />

their senior club rugby season<br />

campaign against Christchurch<br />

at St Leonards Park on Saturday<br />

at 2.45pm.<br />

Club officials are predicting a<br />

big year for the side and other<br />

Sumner teams, which have<br />

strengthened over recent seasons<br />

on the back of outstanding<br />

young talent.<br />

The colts side, Storm, which<br />

has won its division for the past<br />

two seasons, meets Christchurch<br />

in the curtain-raiser at 1pm,<br />

has been a great feeder to senior<br />

sides.<br />

Said head coach Jake Mangin:<br />

“Our colts remain our critical<br />

feeder team. If they are strong,<br />

the club remains strong.”<br />

All players from the 2020 team<br />

have progressed through to the<br />

Tsunami and Wave teams, including<br />

Mitch Cox, Harri Langworthy<br />

and Ollie Lewis who are<br />

playing for the Wave this season.<br />

“The Wave are putting in the<br />

hard yards and we are aiming<br />

for top four this season,’’ said<br />

Mangin after a mid table finish<br />

last year.<br />

Club president Matt Wood<br />

said <strong>2022</strong> “is gearing up to be<br />

one of the most exciting seasons<br />

for the club”<br />

“Jake has put together a<br />

vastly experienced coaching and<br />

management team and recruited<br />

some great talent,” he said.<br />

Originally from Palmerston<br />

North, Mangin moved to Canterbury<br />

in the early 2000s to<br />

study a degree in sports coaching.<br />

He played Canterbury Metro<br />

and he cut his teeth coaching<br />

a junior team at Christchurch<br />

Boys High.<br />

He moved to the United<br />

Kingdom playing and coaching<br />

semi professionally. This in turn<br />

took him to the United States<br />

where he played and coached in<br />

Chicago and to São Paulo, Brazil,<br />

for 10 years.<br />

EAGER:<br />

Jake Mangin<br />

teaching<br />

juniors about<br />

body control.<br />

In 2008, it was announced<br />

rugby was back in the Olympics.<br />

Mangin’s goal was to coach the<br />

men’s 7s at the games.<br />

“I knew if I wasn’t in Brazil I<br />

didn’t have a chance, so I chased<br />

a dream. Rio was an amazing<br />

few weeks of an intensely satisfying<br />

10-year journey,” she said.<br />

During this time he landed the<br />

assistant coach’s role and Brazil<br />

played in the World 7s series<br />

and eventually in the 2016 Rio<br />

Olympic Games.<br />

In 2020 Mangin and his wife<br />

moved their young family back<br />

to New Zealand. Mangin had<br />

earlier worked with Scott Robertson,<br />

through a partnership<br />

between Brazil Rugby and the<br />

Crusaders.<br />

Robertson told him Sumner<br />

Rugby was looking for a head<br />

coach combined with the rugby<br />

development officer role.<br />

Mangin oversees the premier,<br />

colts and premier reserve teams,<br />

ensuring the players and coaches<br />

are aligned with one another and<br />

are well resourced.<br />

The club has extra coaching<br />

support this season Sam<br />

Lindsay and Mike Rowe (Wave)<br />

and Ben Gorst (colts) who takes<br />

over Gareth D’Almeida, who<br />

had two very successful seasons.<br />

James Graham from Canada is<br />

now the head coach of the Tsunami<br />

team.<br />

Mangin also oversees the<br />

recruitment and retention of<br />

players and supports the junior<br />

coaches.<br />

Little River sisters going big<br />

on the national stage<br />

For the Bremner sisters Alana and Chelsea, the last<br />

few weeks have been a whirlwind experience. Fresh<br />

from earning <strong>2022</strong> Black Ferns contracts, the two<br />

sisters were also a part of the inaugural Matatū squad<br />

for Super Rugby Aupiki, with younger sister Alana<br />

captaining the side. The Bremners, who grew up in<br />

Little River, have certainly carved an outstanding path<br />

between the two of them.<br />

However, despite being family, their journeys to<br />

playing for Canterbury, Matatū and the Black Ferns<br />

vary considerably. While Alana played junior rugby for<br />

Banks Peninsula, Chelsea played netball as a junior for<br />

Tai Tapu Netball Club.<br />

“We were really lucky growing up as Mum would load<br />

us all in the car to give any sport a go that we wanted<br />

to try.” Chelsea said. She never quite tried rugby as a<br />

junior however, beginning her rugby journey in 2016,<br />

encouraged by Alana to come along to one of Lincoln<br />

University’s first women’s training sessions to help fill<br />

the numbers.<br />

“I went along to training one day because Lincoln University had<br />

just started a team and they were short on numbers, so Alana<br />

convinced me to come along. I went along to my first training and<br />

absolutely loved it!”<br />

Despite the unconventional start to her<br />

rugby career, Chelsea has gone from<br />

strength to strength. “I was really lucky<br />

to be picked up by Canterbury Rugby<br />

and they obviously saw some potential<br />

in me.” said Chelsea. “Another thing is I<br />

have had amazing coaches, which has<br />

really helped.”<br />

Since that first training session in<br />

2016, Chelsea has continued to push<br />

herself through the rugby pathways,<br />

from joining the Canterbury Women’s<br />

High Performance Academy, becoming<br />

a mainstay in the Canterbury Farah<br />

Palmer Cup forward pack and starting<br />

all three Games of the inaugural Matatū<br />

Super Rugby Aupiki campaign. <strong>2022</strong> is<br />

set to be a big year as Chelsea looks to<br />

cement a spot in the Black Ferns World<br />

Cup squad.<br />

“I’m really excited (for the <strong>2022</strong><br />

season), we’ve got a few Black Ferns<br />

camps coming up so it’s a great<br />

opportunity to back up from starting at<br />

Chelsea Bremner<br />

such a high level (with the introduction of Super Rugby Aupiki).”<br />

While the season poses to be a big one, Chelsea will remain<br />

connected to her Lincoln University Ewes side as they prepare for<br />

their Canstaff Premier Women’s campaign. “We’ve got a really good<br />

culture at Lincoln University, so I know us<br />

Black Ferns girls will be heading to trainings<br />

to help where we can and stay connected<br />

with the social side of the team.” said<br />

Chelsea.<br />

No matter your experience, Chelsea<br />

Bremner provides a great example that<br />

giving it a go can’t hurt, with rugby now<br />

providing experiences for her on a national<br />

and hopefully playing alongside her sister on<br />

the international stage in what is a big year<br />

for women’s rugby.<br />

Clubs throughout the region are looking for<br />

players, with registrations now open across<br />

the region for those wanting to play, coach,<br />

referee or belong this winter!<br />

EVEN THE most modest<br />

looking of artefacts from the Te<br />

Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum<br />

collection can convey important<br />

stories. This piece of baleen is<br />

both a symbol of a significant<br />

early industry in Aotearoa and of<br />

shifting attitudes towards the use<br />

of natural resources.<br />

Baleen is made of keratin, the<br />

same material that human skin,<br />

hair and fingernails are made<br />

of. Whales which use a baleen<br />

filtering methodology to feed<br />

include the blue, bowhead, right,<br />

humpback, minke and grey<br />

whales.<br />

The baleen is attached to plates<br />

in their upper jaw creating a<br />

sieve-like mechanism. They<br />

take in large quantities of water<br />

through their open mouths then<br />

force the water out with their<br />

tongues, leaving krill, small fish<br />

and even birds trapped behind<br />

the fringe of baleen to then<br />

be swallowed. Early whalers<br />

referred to baleen as whalebone<br />

– a misnomer that became<br />

widespread.<br />

Baleen is strong and quite<br />

flexible and, in the era before<br />

plastics, it was used in many<br />

domestic items, including<br />

umbrella frames, corset stays,<br />

crinoline petticoats, collar<br />

stiffeners, back scratchers, buggy<br />

whips, baskets, chimney brooms<br />

and to press paper.<br />

From the 18<strong>30</strong>s, the first<br />

significant contact between<br />

Maori and Europeans in<br />

Whakaraupō / Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> was with American,<br />

French, English and Australian<br />

whalers who plied the waters<br />

off Banks Peninsula to hunt the<br />

many whales which travelled the<br />

coastline from colder to warmer<br />

waters to feed and breed.<br />

As at other early settlements<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

throughout Aotearoa, mana<br />

whenua traded water, firewood,<br />

pork and potatoes for blankets,<br />

biscuits, firearms and alcohol<br />

and there was intermarriage<br />

between European whalers and<br />

local women.<br />

Numbers of Maori men were<br />

engaged either at shore whaling<br />

stations or onboard ships.<br />

In 1836, a whaling station<br />

was established at the head<br />

of the harbour at Waitata /<br />

Little Port Cooper by Captain<br />

Hempleman of the brig “Bee”.<br />

In spite of not having a jetty, it<br />

was used by ships for respite or<br />

to haul out and process their<br />

catch; rendering down the<br />

blubber into barrels of whale<br />

oil and extracting the valuable<br />

whalebone.<br />

Several whalers were buried<br />

in this exposed bay with whale<br />

bones used to mark their graves.<br />

Although the bay remains<br />

accessible only by sea or on foot<br />

today, intrepid visitors still occasionally<br />

sight whale bones on the<br />

beach. The heyday for whaling<br />

around the peninsula was relatively<br />

short lived – a period of<br />

about 40 years. Soberingly, this<br />

was due to the fact that whale<br />

numbers had been so decimated<br />

that hunting was no longer a<br />

viable undertaking.<br />

Up to three million whales<br />

were slaughtered worldwide in<br />

the 19th and early 20th centuries<br />

to feed humankind’s insatiable<br />

appetite for oil and other<br />

by-products like baleen.<br />

Whaling in New Zealand<br />

did not completely end until<br />

1965 when Perano station at<br />

Tory Channel closed, having<br />

caught more than 4000 mainly<br />

humpback whales during its 53-<br />

year operation.<br />

The New Zealand Government<br />

was a founding member of<br />

the International Whaling<br />

Commission in 1946. Whales<br />

in New Zealand waters are<br />

now protected by the Marine<br />

Mammals Protection Act 1978.<br />

There is a strong anti-whaling<br />

sentiment in the population, and<br />

some individuals lend a hand<br />

to try to save whales when they<br />

strand.<br />

Technology blends in Mazda MX-<strong>30</strong><br />

WHEN MY SON purchased his<br />

Mazda RX7 turbo it rekindled my<br />

interest in the rotary engine.<br />

You see, I’ve always been<br />

interested in owning an RX8, but<br />

have always wondered how it<br />

would be living with the freestyle<br />

rear doors on a daily basis.<br />

Well, now I know. I had<br />

Mazda’s new MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid sport<br />

utility vehicle for almost three<br />

weeks and learned to accept the<br />

quirks of the rear doors on a daily<br />

basis, I found them to be quite<br />

manageable, even in close confine<br />

situations.<br />

Rear hinged doors are a bit<br />

of a departure from the norm,<br />

although you may be interested to<br />

know that even some Rolls-Royce<br />

models are sold with them today.<br />

Mazda has used them to good<br />

effect previously in the RX8 and<br />

some Bounty light commercial<br />

utes, and if my memory was<br />

good enough I should have<br />

remembered that style when my<br />

family had an old Jowett Javelin<br />

in the early 60s, but because I was<br />

only a child at the time I don’t.<br />

The MX-<strong>30</strong>, though, is a<br />

different concept again, it is a<br />

small-to-medium SUV that<br />

explores new boundaries for<br />

Mazda, it comes fully electric or,<br />

as in the test car’s case, as a mild<br />

hybrid.<br />

I evaluated the EV in<br />

December and enjoyed its ease<br />

of use, practicality and concept.<br />

It’s a model that fits well with<br />

the expectation of the modern<br />

electric vehicle buyer and,<br />

what’s more, it qualifies for the<br />

Government’s clean car subsidy<br />

of $8625, making its $74,990<br />

price tag quite tempting.<br />

The hybrid on the other hand,<br />

doesn’t qualify or any discount<br />

although it may become eligible<br />

for a rebate this year when<br />

it is proposed that a range<br />

of discounts and fees will be<br />

introduced by the Government<br />

based on CO2 ratings. It lists at<br />

$46,790.<br />

It’s fair to say the MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid<br />

is only a mild hybrid, the lithiumion<br />

battery pack is charged by<br />

the regenerative energy you get<br />

while braking, and the storage is<br />

only there to power the ancillaries<br />

and assist in acceleration, taking<br />

the load off the engine so that<br />

fuel use is minimised. If you take<br />

into account Mazda’s Skyactiv<br />

programme that has economy<br />

as its ongoing aim, then you can<br />

guarantee the MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid is a<br />

genuinely easy on fuel, and it is<br />

happy to sip away on 91-octane,<br />

which in this day and age of hefty<br />

fuel prices means that savings<br />

over a year are quite real.<br />

Mazda claims a 6.4-litre per<br />

100km combine cycle average.<br />

I was fortunate to be allowed<br />

the MX-<strong>30</strong> during the build<br />

up to Christmas, which in the<br />

Kiddie household means a lot of<br />

shopping of provisions for the<br />

ever-groaning pantry and fridges.<br />

That necessitated battling the<br />

inner-city traffic and that is never<br />

good for fuel usage, however the<br />

readouts were constant at around<br />

7l/100km, which I figured was a<br />

good result.<br />

On my highway run the engine<br />

is loping over at just 2250rpm at<br />

DESIGN:<br />

Freestyle<br />

rear doors<br />

are well<br />

integrated<br />

into the SUV<br />

body style.<br />

100km with the display graphics<br />

registering fuel use of 4l/100km<br />

instantaneously.<br />

Mazda claim power outputs of<br />

114kW and 200Nm, which are<br />

about what can be expected these<br />

days from a 2-litre displacement<br />

and are more than adequate<br />

for the MX-<strong>30</strong>’s role. Drive is<br />

channelled through a traditional<br />

six-speed automatic gearbox<br />

and it, too, is a beauty through<br />

its simplicity and undetectable<br />

changes; there are also paddle<br />

shifters should the driver so<br />

desire to take control over the<br />

gear change process.<br />

Other figures that are worth<br />

noting are those of acceleration.<br />

The MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid will tackle a<br />

standstill to 100km/h run in 9sec<br />

and will complete that highway<br />

overtake in 6sec (80-120km/h).<br />

A sport mode will liven engine<br />

ability, but it also makes the<br />

gearbox reluctant to accept top<br />

gear, and that is not want you<br />

want if you are cruising at the<br />

legal road speed limit and trying<br />

to maximise fuel use.<br />

On my highway run the<br />

MX-<strong>30</strong> cruised quietly and<br />

efficiently as distance was covered<br />

comfortably. It sits stable on the<br />

road and leans just ever so gently<br />

as the corners are met, the spring<br />

and damper rates set so that<br />

suspension absorption is keen<br />

along with arresting most of the<br />

gravitational force.<br />

Not only does the MX-<strong>30</strong><br />

hybrid tick all the boxes of<br />

performance, economy and<br />

handling, it also has all the<br />

• Price – Mazda MX-<strong>30</strong><br />

hybrid Limited, $46,790<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4395mm; width, 1795mm;<br />

height, 1545mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1998cc, 114kW,<br />

200Nm, six-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.4l/100km<br />

goodies that a buyer would want<br />

from a new generation model.<br />

To simplify Mazda’s<br />

specification levels for both the<br />

hybrid and EV, it goes something<br />

like this, the EV has Takami<br />

specification which means it gets<br />

everything Mazda has in terms of<br />

kit. The hybrid has Limited spec<br />

that is without leather. I’m all for<br />

that, I’m not a big leather trim<br />

fan and the cloth interior of the<br />

hybrid is comfortable and hardwearing.<br />

It must be noted too,<br />

that Mazda as a company<br />

has sustainability as a key<br />

manufacturing ingredient and<br />

the MX-<strong>30</strong> has areas of a tasteful<br />

cork-type interior trim material<br />

that I like and Mazda says it is<br />

durable.<br />

Elsewhere there is satellite<br />

navigation, head-up display,<br />

keyless entry and ignition,<br />

electric sunroof and radar cruise<br />

control. The latter is part of a<br />

beefy Mazda Safety Sense suite<br />

of kit that easily earns the MX-<br />

MAZDA MX-<strong>30</strong>:<br />

Petrol/hybrid<br />

system for those<br />

who don’t want<br />

a fully electric<br />

vehicle.<br />

<strong>30</strong> a five star Australasian New<br />

Car Assessment Program safety<br />

rating.<br />

The MX-<strong>30</strong> isn’t a big car, but<br />

it is big on value and what it<br />

does do is convert its compact<br />

proportions into practicality.<br />

Cargo load space is listed at<br />

370-litres, if you fold down the<br />

rear seats that area extends to<br />

a generous 1<strong>30</strong>8-litres, and I<br />

can report that utilising that<br />

entire area will easily house a<br />

hefty supermarket shopping<br />

experience.<br />

In terms of rear seat occupant<br />

comfort, well, that is really an<br />

area for those slight of build.<br />

Sure there are three seat belts,<br />

but access through the freestyle<br />

doors requires some technique,<br />

and leg room once in there is at<br />

a premium. Nevertheless, the<br />

MX-<strong>30</strong> suited my wife and I well<br />

during the lengthy evaluation.<br />

I particularly enjoyed its<br />

simplicity while knowing<br />

underneath all of the mechanical<br />

elements were working together<br />

to give you the most efficient<br />

driving experience.<br />

If the MX-<strong>30</strong>’s technical aspects<br />

aren’t tempting enough – EV or<br />

hybrid – there is something else<br />

about buying a Mazda that offers<br />

much peace of mind, and that is<br />

having the company’s three aftersale<br />

packages all included in the<br />

price. They offer free servicing for<br />

up to 100,000km, an unlimited<br />

kilometre new vehicle warranty<br />

and unlimited kilometre roadside<br />

assistance, all up to five years after<br />

purchase.<br />
