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.

What do you think of Christchurch's stadium plan?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.

The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.

The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $485.3m to run over 25 years, of which $343m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.
