Should more lights go up at Hagley Oval?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

To host international day/night games, Christchurch's Hagley Oval will require six lighting towers, but there's strong opposition to the proposal.

What do you think? Should the lights be installed so the city can host more cricket matches? Or should Hagley Park be left alone? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.

Riccarton Rd roadworks to pause over Christmas

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Upgrades to the section of Riccarton Rd, which includes the busy shopping strip between Harakeke and Matipo streets, will be put on hold for six weeks from December 2.

The works are the second stage of an upgrade for Riccarton Rd. The first stage, at the Hagley Park end of the road, crippled businesses. Both stages will cost $18.4 million.

Stage two works started in January. A tree-planted median strip will be added between Clarence and Matipo streets, road markings will give buses priority over cars, water pipes which are nearly a century old will be replaced, and the deteriorating road will be resurfaced. Parking will be removed to allow for the new road layout.
