Election 2020: Christchurch a sea of red as voters back Labour

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Greater Christchurch has overwhelmingly voted red – giving Labour all but two of its electorate seats and the majority of the party vote.

Labour supporters at the party's election event in Christchurch on Saturday night were barely able to keep a lid on their excitement and glee at National’s astonishingly poor performance in the city – and their knives came out for their parliamentary colleagues in Blue.

“At last, Christchurch has woken up,” said Duncan Webb, Christchurch Central’s incumbent.

More buses for Christchurch's Airport to Sumner route

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Buses on Christchurch's Airport to Sumner route (the Purple Line) will run every 10 minutes on weekdays and every 15 minutes on weekends from November 29.

The change comes as Environment Canterbury (ECan) works to provide more buses more often as part of the Regional Public Transport Plan.

Buses will run every 10 minutes on the Purple Line from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday.

The current 15-minute frequency will continue on Saturdays, and the Sunday timetable will be changed to match. These timings will operate for most of the day except for early mornings and late evenings.
