Call for cellphone<br />

tower to be moved<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

REDCLIFFS residents are<br />

calling for a cellphone tower to<br />

be relocated.<br />

Digital infrastructure<br />

company FortySouth has<br />

begun upgrades to the tower<br />

on Beachville Rd and the<br />

Christchurch Coastal Pathway,<br />

which involves installing a new<br />

tower less than a metre away<br />

from the existing site.<br />

But locals and community<br />

organisations say the new tower,<br />

which is more than twice<br />

as wide as the existing one,<br />

should be relocated.<br />

“That tower will dominate<br />

all the views,” Redcliffs resident<br />

Zara Fleming said.<br />

“This is a really special place<br />

so it deserves special consideration.”<br />

Work to upgrade the existing<br />

tower, built in 2003, began<br />

in late March.<br />

The tower will be the same<br />

height as the existing one, and<br />

will remain in the same area,<br />

FortySouth head of external<br />

affairs Lisa Mulitalo said.<br />

UPGRADE: Redcliffs residents are urging FortySouth to investigate alternative locations<br />

for the new cellphone tower, which will be 0.75m northeast of the original tower (inset).<br />

Flooding<br />

impossible<br />

to fix, city<br />

council<br />

report says<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

REGULAR flooding along the<br />

Heathcote River may never be<br />

fixed.<br />

A staff report at last week’s city<br />

council meeting stated it was<br />

“not possible to ‘fix flooding’ and<br />

some level of flood risk would be<br />

present even if investment were<br />

significantly increased”.<br />

Since 2010, the city council has<br />

spent $300 million reducing the<br />

flood risk around areas including<br />

the Heathcote River, where<br />

water was regularly seeping into<br />

people’s homes.<br />

“There will always be a bigger<br />

flood event, or areas that cannot<br />

be practicably remedied,” the<br />

report stated.<br />

To help, $14 million was set<br />

aside in the 2021-2031 Long<br />

Term Plan to address localised<br />

flood risk in areas including<br />

McCormacks <strong>Bay</strong>, Heathcote<br />

Valley, Hillsborough, and<br />

Redcliffs.<br />

The $14 million did not<br />

include budgets for larger flood<br />

management schemes like the<br />

Upper Heathcote storage areas.<br />

SAFER: The roundabout connecting Dyers Pass Rd, Colombo St, Cashmere Rd and Centaurus Rd as it is today. Right – what the roundabout is<br />

expected to look like after the proposed changes.<br />

PHOTOS: NEWSLINE<br />

Changes likely for risky roundabout<br />

A BUSY roundabout at the base<br />

of the Port Hills could soon get<br />

a raft of safety improvements to<br />

address the high crash rate.<br />

The Waihoro Spreydon-<br />

Cashmere-Heathcote<br />

Community Board is due to<br />

consider a report tomorrow<br />

recommending safety<br />

improvements to the Cashmere<br />

Rd, Centaurus Rd, Colombo St,<br />

Dyers Pass Rd roundabout.<br />

The changes would include<br />

raised platforms to help prevent<br />

vehicles crashing with cyclists.<br />

Between 2010 and 2021, 27<br />

crashes were reported at the<br />

roundabout. Ten of those<br />

resulted in serious injuries, with<br />

six involving people riding bikes<br />

and four involving people on a<br />

motorcycle or scooter. Cyclists<br />

were also involved in eight<br />

crashes between 2010 and 2021<br />

that resulted in minor injuries.<br />

To address this, city council<br />

staff have recommended changes,<br />

including raised platforms to<br />

encourage safe speeds as vehicles<br />

travel through the roundabout<br />

and make it safer for people to<br />

cross the intersection.<br />

Similar raised platforms added<br />

to intersections across the city,<br />

including Lincoln Rd, Barrington<br />

St and Whiteleigh Ave in<br />

Addington, have faced criticism<br />

from Mayor Phil Mauger.<br />

However, the city council staff<br />

report says the raised platforms<br />

reduce entry speed and improve<br />

safety.<br />

“The Cashmere/Colombo/<br />

Centaurus/Dyers Pass<br />

intersection is a busy intersection<br />

used by many people travelling<br />

to school, work or across the<br />

community. Whether people<br />

are travelling through this<br />

intersection on foot, by bicycle,<br />

by bus or driving, they should<br />

be able to do so safely,” the staff<br />

report stated.<br />

The report also recommended:<br />

• Narrowing the road<br />

widths approaching the<br />

roundabout and installing<br />

sharrow markings to indicate<br />

that people riding bicycles and<br />

vehicles share the lane.<br />

• Widening the existing<br />

pedestrian refuge islands and<br />

add zebra pedestrian and cycle<br />

crossings on Colombo St and<br />

Centaurus Rd to create safer<br />

crossing points.<br />

• Building out the kerb on<br />

the corner of Colombo St and<br />

Centaurus Rd to slow vehicles<br />

turning left into Centaurus<br />

Rd and provide space for<br />

landscaping.<br />

• Building out the kerb on<br />

Dyers Pass and Cashmere Rds<br />

to slow vehicles turning left into<br />

Cashmere Rd.<br />

• Adding a concrete lip around<br />

the centre of the roundabout<br />

to reduce the speed of people<br />

travelling in the roundabout.<br />

More than 400 submissions<br />

were made during the<br />

consultation process, with the<br />

majority calling for traffic lights<br />

to be installed.<br />

However, city council staff say<br />

traffic signals would not improve<br />

safety, may cause more delays for<br />

road users, and would cost $2.5<br />

million, compared to $450,000<br />

for the recommended changes.<br />

The cost will be covered by<br />

the Government through the<br />

Christchurch Regeneration<br />

Acceleration Fund.<br />

Residents call for a better solution<br />

• From page 1<br />

“The cell site . . . will not extend<br />

any further into the footpath<br />

than the existing equipment,”<br />

Mulitalo said.<br />

However, it will be wider. The<br />

existing pole has a diameter of<br />

11.4cm. The new pole has a diameter<br />

of 27.3cm.<br />

“We have selected the slimmest<br />

pole possible to structurally<br />

support the new equipment,”<br />

Mulitalo said.<br />

Work is currently on hold until<br />

<strong>April</strong> 20, so FortySouth and One<br />

NZ can communicate plans to<br />

nearby residents, as they failed to<br />

do so in an initial letter.<br />

“Detailed plans were not<br />

initially shared with neighbours,<br />

but that has now been done and<br />

we have apologised for not doing<br />

this when we first wrote to them,”<br />

Mulitalo said.<br />

In the new letter sent to residents,<br />

FortySouth provided an<br />

email address for queries and<br />

feedback.<br />

But Redcliffs residents are<br />

calling for FortySouth to consider<br />

alternative locations for<br />

the upgrade and to carry out<br />

consultation.<br />

“We would be disappointed to<br />

see (the current tower) getting<br />

more obtrusive,” Redcliffs Residents’<br />

McIntosh said.<br />

The association was alerted to<br />

the details of the upgrade by a<br />

Hayley Holt grew up in the public eye. Now it’s time to share her<br />

side of the story.<br />

After breaking free from the strict dance schedule of her childhood, in her late<br />

teens Hayley found freedom at the bottom of a bottle: she became confident,<br />

easygoing, the life of the party.<br />

Before long it became a crutch. As her high-profile TV career grew, Hayley spent<br />

nights drinking, getting kicked out of clubs, and blacking out. In this vulnerable<br />

memoir, she describes the scare that led her to Alcoholics Anonymous, her<br />

journey to sobriety, and an ADHD diagnosis that brought everything into focus.<br />

Then, single, forty, and at the peak of her career, Hayley embarked on a<br />

pregnancy that was cut short by a devastating stillbirth. Yet in the darkest place of<br />

her life, she found hope in a blossoming new love.<br />

Heartbreaking and inspiring, filled with Hayley’s wicked wit, Second Chances is<br />

about finding the courage to face up to your mistakes, and learning that even the<br />

deepest pain can be followed by the greatest joy.<br />

edible pantry in her back garden and discovered the joys of bringing food<br />

from seed to table.<br />

Organised seasonally, and with growing guides for each ingredient,<br />

Nostrana shares simple, gorgeous and delicious recipes with fresh<br />

She said she was<br />

told by the crew<br />

the tower would<br />

only be slightly<br />

wider.<br />

When the new<br />

pole was bought to<br />

the site, Fleming<br />

thought it was massive.<br />

Pat<br />

McIntosh<br />

“I thought, that’s not slightly<br />

wider, it’s huge,” she said.<br />

After seeing the size of the new<br />

tower, Fleming and her husband<br />

did some research. She said the<br />

dimensions for the upgraded<br />

tower had been left off paperwork<br />

sent to the city council.<br />

“You couldn’t tell how much<br />

bigger it was going to be,” she<br />

said.<br />

Like the resident’s association,<br />

Fleming is asking FortySouth to<br />

investigate other locations.<br />

She also thinks the company<br />

should have consulted the community<br />

and residents.<br />

“If you’re a private company<br />

using public land, you have a<br />

responsibility to properly consult<br />

with the people affected,” Fleming<br />

said.<br />

City council head of planning<br />

and consents John Higgins said<br />

consultation is usually the responsibility<br />

of the operator.<br />

“Sometimes, if the cell tower<br />

significantly exceeds the standards,<br />

then formal consultation is<br />

The<br />

Christchurch<br />

Coastal Pathway<br />

Group moved<br />

a unanimous<br />

motion at a meeting last<br />

Tuesday, put forward by CCPG<br />

chair Hanno Sander: “That<br />

the Christchurch Coastal<br />

Pathway Group’s key objective<br />

is to promote the creation of<br />

a 4m wide shared pathway<br />

which includes the Beachville<br />

Esplanade.<br />

“CCPG was not consulted on<br />

the proposed changes to the cell<br />

tower, which will block a large<br />

section of the pathway. Our<br />

position is that the placement of<br />

any structures on the pathway is<br />

unacceptable.”<br />

Sander said the group’s main<br />

concern was structures built on<br />

the path.<br />

“We don’t want structures built<br />

on the pathway blocking the path<br />

of users,” he said.<br />

The cellphone tower upgrade is<br />

part of a nationwide programme<br />

FortySouth has been carrying<br />

out over the last couple of years.<br />

It has been both upgrading and<br />

building new towers throughout<br />

New Zealand, as well as working<br />

on other sites in Christchurch.

Walk or wheel around<br />

the Coastal Pathway<br />

NEWS 7<br />

KAREN BRILL’S walking bike<br />

has allowed her to get her life<br />

back.<br />

Karen was struggling with<br />

her weight, had damaged lungs,<br />

difficulty breathing and severe<br />

arthritis.<br />

“In 2020, I went to church and<br />

couldn’t even walk five metres<br />

without needing to take a rest. I<br />

disliked not being able to walk<br />

and live a normal life, and finally<br />

decided that I’d had enough.”<br />

So Karen bought a large<br />

walking frame, hoping it would<br />

extend her mobility. Despite<br />

taking this step, she reached<br />

another hurdle.<br />

“The walker was so wide<br />

I couldn’t even get through<br />

doorframes with it. I put up with<br />

it for a few months, but in early<br />

2021 I thought it was ridiculous.<br />

So I went online and stumbled<br />

across the Alinker walking bike.”<br />

Karen said before the Alinker,<br />

any sort of exercise was hard.<br />

“I was 150kg and I couldn’t<br />

even get to the letterbox. My<br />

neighbour brought in my mail<br />

and took out my bins for me,<br />

and friends picked me up to take<br />

me to Church.”<br />

The new walking bike, created<br />

by Dutch-Canadian inventor<br />

Barbara Alink, allowed Karen to<br />

out of her home and complete<br />

her daily errands by herself.<br />

The walking bike also helped<br />

Last week’s report intended<br />

to present a wider view of<br />

stormwater management that<br />

will enable more informed<br />

decisions to be made.<br />

Also in the report was a brief<br />

summary of options that had<br />

been investigated in the past to<br />

address localised flooding and<br />

stormwater ponding that are not<br />

currently funded.<br />

One of those was pipe and<br />

waterway network upgrades<br />

FITNESS: Karen Brill said her new walking bike has<br />

changed her life.<br />

her lose enough weight to<br />

receive gastric bypass surgery<br />

and improve her quality of life.<br />

“It came down to the social<br />

aspect of it as well. People were<br />

talking to me in the street and<br />

my confidence was improving.<br />

I’d even leave myself extra time<br />

when I went out, so that I could<br />

stop and chat to anyone who<br />

had questions.<br />

“Now, I’m walking about 6km<br />

a day. While I still cannot bend<br />

my knee, my lungs are healthy,<br />

my muscles are growing and I’m<br />

able to do things I haven’t done<br />

in years,” Karen said.<br />

The city council’s Walking<br />

Festival caters to a range of<br />

people like Karen. A new<br />

accessible walk, hosted by the<br />

New Zealand Spinal Trust and<br />

called Te Ara Ihutai Coastal<br />

Pathway – Wheelie Wander will<br />

take place on Sunday, <strong>April</strong> 23.<br />

The participants will meet at<br />

11am at Scotts Park off Main Rd<br />

in Mt Pleasant before they walk<br />

or wheel their way along the<br />

Coastal Pathway.<br />

The walk is open to those in<br />

wheelchairs and their friends<br />

and whānau. New Zealand<br />

Spinal Trust community and<br />

marketing coordinator Tina<br />

Morrell said the organisation<br />

was exited to host the walk.<br />

“As staff, we like to live active,<br />

healthy lives and encourage<br />

the people we work alongside<br />

to remain active too. The<br />

well-being benefits of keeping<br />

physically active are immense,”<br />

Morrell said.<br />

Whether you’re a fan of local<br />

history, getting out into nature,<br />

socialising or pushing yourself<br />

to get that awesome view, there’s<br />

something for all ages and<br />

abilities.<br />

Some flooding will be inevitable<br />

in the Sumner Stream, which<br />

in 2016 had an estimated<br />

construction cost of $<strong>12</strong>.8<br />

million, with the benefit of<br />

reducing flooding and road<br />

ponding in Sumner.<br />

The report said the community<br />

and city council would have<br />

to accept some surface water<br />

ponding and private property<br />

flooding that could be addressed<br />

through physical work.<br />

Mayor Phil Mauger is no<br />

stranger to working in flooded<br />

areas having taken matters<br />

into his own hands digging<br />

out a trench in Bexley red zone<br />

in 2020, following which the<br />

city council voted to prioritise<br />

works in the area to address the<br />

problem.<br />

During last week’s meeting,<br />

Mauger questioned council staff<br />

whether enough material was<br />

being removed from rivers and<br />

whether more common dredging<br />

could be an option, something<br />

he said was a common<br />

occurrence pre-earthquake.<br />

Council staff responded by<br />

saying dredging is not a simple<br />

process and that multiple factors<br />

had to be considered including<br />

bank stability.<br />

The city council decided to<br />

develop a prioritised list of<br />

works, but staff warned the<br />

scale of the task limited the<br />

city council’s ability to address<br />

all areas at pace and significant<br />

time would be needed to<br />

complete all the work.<br />

CRUISE: The Ovation of<br />

the Seas left Lyttelton on<br />

Monday.<br />

Even more<br />

cruise ships<br />

expected<br />

next season<br />

CRUISE SHIPS will be docking at<br />

Lyttelton in even greater numbers<br />

next season.<br />

Seventy-nine cruise ships<br />

berthed in Lyttelton over the past<br />

seven months, including the last<br />

one of this season, the Ovation<br />

of the Seas, which departed on<br />

Monday.<br />

However, the Lyttelton Port<br />

Company’s forecast is for 98<br />

cruise ship visits next season.<br />

“The return of large cruise ships<br />

to the Port of Lyttelton has been<br />

a welcome return for Lyttelton,<br />

Christchurch and the Canterbury<br />

province after the devastating<br />

Canterbury earthquakes and<br />

Covid-19 pandemic,” Lyttelton<br />

Port Company’s Phil de Joux said.<br />

He said there had been 85<br />

scheduled arrivals this season<br />

but 79 visits. The drop was due to<br />

weather, hull cleaning and vessel<br />

operational issues.<br />

Bus routes through Lyttelton<br />

are changing to try to solve the<br />

congestion problem caused by<br />

cruise ship passengers.<br />

It’s one of a number of<br />

immediate changes being made<br />

after the Te Pataka o Rakaihautu<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board faced angry protests from<br />

locals at a meeting in February,<br />

complaining about cruise<br />

ship passengers hogging the<br />

buses, creating congestion and<br />

preventing them from getting to<br />

Tiny birds continue to thrive in bush<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

TWO PAIRS of New Zealand’s<br />

smallest bird continue to live<br />

in bush near Akaroa – more<br />

than a year after they were first<br />

spotted.<br />

The rifleman were first seen in<br />

the reserve by a city council park<br />

ranger in late 2021.<br />

Typically, rifleman prefer a<br />

more mature forest than that on<br />

Banks Peninsula.<br />

City council<br />

biodiversity<br />

team leader<br />

Alison Evans<br />

said rifleman<br />

are at extremely<br />

high risk from<br />

predators.<br />

Alison Evans<br />

The birds<br />

choose to<br />

nest in holes<br />

of native trees, where they are<br />

preyed on by rats, possums and<br />

other pests.<br />

“Rats and stoats easily get into<br />

their holes in trees.<br />

“They’re like sitting ducks in<br />

there,” Evans said.<br />

To protect the current<br />

Misty Peaks Reserve rifleman<br />

population of four and boost<br />

their numbers, the city council,<br />

Refuge Ecology and Banks<br />

Peninsula Conservation Trust<br />

placed 51 nesting boxes in the<br />

area during <strong>April</strong> last year.<br />

“In many areas, there aren’t<br />

many native trees left with these<br />

kinds of holes. By providing<br />

boxes you’re providing them with<br />

a safe place,” Evans said.<br />

The boxes are designed to<br />

replicate the typical natural<br />

nesting place of the birds.<br />

At the beginning of the project,<br />

the city council was aware of two<br />

male and two female riflemen/<br />

titipounamu living on Banks<br />

Peninsula. A year later the same<br />

two pairs are still living in the<br />

area.<br />

While the number of rifleman<br />

has not increased at the reserve<br />

since the project began, Evans<br />

is pleased the two pairs are still<br />

around.<br />

“We haven’t seen any using the<br />

boxes, but we wouldn’t expect<br />

them to be using the boxes just<br />

yet,” Evans said.<br />

She does not think the city<br />

council will see the birds in the<br />

boxes for about two or three<br />

years, when they need a place to<br />

nest.<br />

“In the meantime, what<br />

we’ve been concentrating on<br />

more is the predator control<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

there,’’ Evans said.<br />

“The city council is working<br />

will Pest Free Banks Peninsula,<br />

primarily on possum control in<br />

the area.<br />

“We’ve got AT220 traps in<br />

(Misty Peaks Reserve) which<br />

reset themselves.<br />

“We want to know which<br />

species are going to flourish as a<br />

result of no possums.<br />

“We’ve been cleaning up a lot<br />

of possums from those traps, so<br />

that will be really good to have<br />

them gone.”<br />

Rifleman are very sparsely<br />

HOPEFUL: City council<br />

ranger MacKenzie Flight<br />

checks a rifleman nesting<br />

boxes.<br />

dispersed, which makes them<br />

hard to track down.<br />

Due to this, Evans does not<br />

have an estimate of how many<br />

rifleman there are across New<br />

Zealand.<br />

“There’s very few around,<br />

they’re quite secretive birds.<br />

“But they’re hanging in there.”<br />

In the next two to three years,<br />

Evans’ goal is to see rifleman<br />

flourish.<br />

• If you have seen a<br />

rifleman, report the<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

Lyttelton Railway Station’s 105 years<br />

The Oxford St entrance to the Lyttelton Railway Station and port, framed by the harbour<br />

board and post office. Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum ref. 14986.172<br />

Top right – The Lyttelton railway yards, 1875. Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum ref. 14985.20<br />

https://www.teuaka.org.nz/online-collection/1135995<br />

FOR OVER a century, the town<br />

centre of Ōhinehou Lyttelton<br />

revolved not solely around<br />

London St, but extended down<br />

along Oxford St to the port quays<br />

and their public transport hub at<br />

the Lyttelton Railway Station.<br />

In days gone by, turning right<br />

into Oxford St from London St,<br />

you would have passed by HP<br />

Hobson’s, later Collett’s Chemist,<br />

with the borough council offices<br />

and the old library and fire<br />

station across the street, and the<br />

war memorial in the centre of<br />

the intersection.<br />

Walking down the steep footpath<br />

past Norton’s Tea Rooms<br />

and Dance Hall, followed by<br />

the Tin Palace, you would have<br />

come to the busy intersection of<br />

Oxford St and Norwich Quay.<br />

Here, you would find the British<br />

and Canterbury hotels opposite<br />

the fine harbour board and the<br />

post and telegraph office with<br />

its clock tower, with Oxford St<br />

continuing on into the Lyttelton<br />

Railway Station yard and the<br />

wharves beyond.<br />

Established in 1867, the<br />

Lyttelton Railway Station was<br />

constructed to accommodate<br />

passengers traversing the<br />

recently completed Moorhouse<br />

Rail Tunnel, thus rendering the<br />

Ferrymead Railway – New Zealand’s<br />

inaugural public railway<br />

line – obsolete.<br />

The Lyttelton station held<br />

considerable significance as it<br />

facilitated a crucial connection<br />

between the port of Lyttelton<br />

and the city of Christchurch, as<br />

well as linking the port to the<br />

wider Canterbury region. This<br />

connectivity allowed for the<br />

efficient transport of goods and<br />

passengers by means of rail, and<br />

resulted in the rapid expansion<br />

of freight and passenger rail services<br />

through the latter decades<br />

of the 19th century.<br />

The initial station building was<br />

a humble wooden construction,<br />

featuring a gabled roof and<br />

dimensions of just five by 11 metres.<br />

A crowd of approximately<br />

500 citizens gathered there on<br />

December 9, 1867 to welcome<br />

the arrival of the first passenger<br />

train, with some noting the station<br />

appeared to be unfinished,<br />

without a roofed platform, and of<br />

a ‘temporary quality’.<br />

In January 1873, with the<br />

station having survived the<br />

great fire of 1870, designs for a<br />

new and more accommodating<br />

building were devised.<br />

Canterbury Provincial Railways<br />

general manager John Marshman<br />

successfully persuaded the<br />

provincial government to construct<br />

verandas over the station<br />

platforms, arguing he had never<br />

seen a railway station of Lyttelton’s<br />

significance that required<br />

passengers to brave the rain in<br />

order to board a train.<br />

This second rainproof<br />

railway station commenced<br />

operation upon its completion<br />

in August 1873. However, it<br />

would be another six years,<br />

and some <strong>12</strong> years after the rail<br />

tunnel opened, before regularly<br />

scheduled passenger rail<br />

services between Lyttelton and<br />

Christchurch would finally commence<br />

on December 17, 1879.<br />

Through to the 20th century,<br />

the railway station became an<br />

important public transportation<br />

hub for the region, with its<br />

passenger trains connecting<br />

with steam ferries to and from<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>, the Corsair<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> Recreation Reserve, and bays<br />

around Horomaka Banks Peninsula,<br />

along with a regular Royal<br />

Mail passenger coach service to<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> and beyond.<br />

Throughout its nine long<br />

decades of service to the community,<br />

this second station saw<br />

a huge growth in passenger<br />

services, along with the advent<br />

of electric trains in 1929, and<br />

went through multiple repairs<br />

and refurbishments. After just<br />

30 years, in 1910, the district<br />

engineer had recommended its<br />

demolition and the building of a<br />

new station, to no avail. A quarter<br />

of a century later, in 1935,<br />

another district engineer noted<br />

a severe borer infestation. Yet it<br />

was not until August 7, 1962 that<br />

the Minister of Railways John<br />

McAlpine finally announced the<br />

demolition and redevelopment<br />

of a rather dilapidated Lyttelton<br />

Railway Station.<br />

The construction project<br />

went ahead despite concerns<br />

surrounding the long-term<br />

sustainability of passenger rail<br />

services between Lyttelton and<br />

Christchurch, as the imminent<br />

completion of the Lyttelton Road<br />

Tunnel was expected to establish<br />

road transport as a serious competitor<br />

for public patronage.<br />

And sure enough, the distinctly<br />

1960s-style third Lyttelton<br />

Railway Station remained operational<br />

for just shy of a decade before<br />

the New Zealand Railways<br />

department made the decision<br />

to terminate passenger services<br />

through the Lyttelton Railway<br />

Tunnel due to diminishing<br />

passenger counts. The regular<br />

passenger rail service between<br />

Lyttelton and Christchurch was<br />

thus discontinued on February<br />

28, 1972, and with it the century-long<br />

history of the Lyttelton<br />

Railway Station at the heart of<br />

the port town became a fading<br />

memory.<br />

Intermittent rail passenger<br />

services continued with the<br />

‘boat train’ express connecting<br />
