Cyclist killed on 'nightmare' crossing near Christchurch intersection

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A cyclist killed was fatally hit by a van on Brougham St, near the Christchurch Southern Motorway, on Thursday evening.

The Press understands the cyclist, a man in his 50s, was crossing the road when the van hit him. It is not yet clear if the cyclist had the green light to cross.

At least 27 other crashes have happened on the stretch of Brougham St where it intersects with Simeon and Collins streets since January 2000, according to NZTA crash data. Read more here.

Our thoughts are with the friends and family of those involved.

Christchurch council takes hard line on recycling rule breakers

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Almost 1500 Christchurch households could soon have their recycling bins confiscated as the city council cracks down on people who refuse to separate their waste.

About 180 yellow wheelie bins have already been removed and the council has sent final warnings to another 1450 residents.

To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.

Christchurch City Council has spent close to $1.5 million sending almost 1500 truckloads of contaminated material from yellow bins to landfill since May. That equates to about 41 per cent of all yellow bins.

Do you agree with council's strict recycling approach? Let us know below.
