Three red light cameras will be switched on later this year to catch motorists illegally running through intersections in Christchurch.

A red light camera was installed at the intersection of Bealey Ave and Madras St in 2018, but it had only been used to collect data and no infringements had been issued from it.

A Christchurch City Council spokesman said two more red light cameras would be installed in the third quarter of this year: one at the intersection of Manchester St, Pilgrim Pl and Moorhouse Ave, and the other at the intersection of Gasson St, Madras St and Moorhouse Ave.

Infringements would start being issued from all three cameras after the new ones were installed, a police spokesperson said.

It appears they are severely understaffed with only 1 nurse on the desk when we got there and a line of people. Is this the norm with our health system?

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.

We Say/You Say: trans-Tasman bubble

Hi Canterbury!

After more than a year of closed borders, Australians and New Zealanders will soon be able to jet-hop between countries after the government announced that the trans-Tasman travel bubble will be operational from April 19.

With quarantine-free travel now possible, are you more likely to head across the Tasman or travel domestically?

Fronting Australian media yesterday, Jacinda Ardern not only spoke of the excitement of families being able to be reunited, but also pitched New Zealand tourist activities to Australian viewers.

"If there is a hot spot in one of the states of Australia we may just act in the same way that another state would ... Just prepare that there may be disruptions, but what better place in the world to be stuck. Am I right?," she said.

The trans-Tasman bubble will operate on a three tier basis: Continue, Pause and Suspend. If there are a few cases in Australia linked to the border, quarantine-free travel will continue. Travel may be paused for 72 hours if there are rogue community cases and in the instance of a state or nationwide lockdown, travel will be suspended.

Move over Burt.

Another team of Kiwi adrenaline junkies will attempt to crack a record-breaking 320kmh this week, on a motorbike built in a Christchurch shed.

Between Friday and Sunday, 56-year-old UK ex-pat Phil Garrett will try to set a New Zealand motorcycle land speed record, tearing down a closed McCrorys Rd in Pendarves, near Ashburton.

Alongside fellow drivers Rob Small and Des Bull, he will tackle the feat on a 46-year-old motorbike, one almost entirely rebuilt in his Burwood garage by hundreds of people.

What do you think of their chances?

Hi Neighbours

This week we thought we would have a little fun and run a name your price special for the week. So if you want a top of the line coating at a bargain price simply got to our website and fill out the form on the contacts tab with details of the job and the price you would like to pay and we will let you know if we can do your job at that price!

Our state of the art German nanocoating is designed to protect your glass and save you time and effort in cleaning it. It is fantastic for shower glass, glazed shower tiles, splashbacks, pool fencing, and outside glass which is exposed to irrigation systems. Because the coating repels water it is also amazing for car and boat windshields for improving visibility in the wet. We also offer water stain removal services for older stained showers and glass.
