Boy racers given the green light

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

Christchurch authorities have come up with a plan to stop boy racers revving engines and racing off the line: Don't let them hit red lights.

Council will trial phasing the traffic lights on Bealey Ave so traffic gets a clear run down the length of the street, to reduce noise from things like stopping and accelerating, revving and burn-outs.

Do you think this will stop boy racers from revving loudly? Tell us in the comments below (please write NFP if you don't want your comments published).

What do you think should be done with the former Lancaster Park site?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Two Christchurch sports clubs have set their sights on using Lancaster Park if the city council decides to retain the land for sports use.

The demolition of the earthquake-damaged Lancaster Park will be completed during 2019 and the Christchurch City Council will decide on Thursday whether to redevelop it for sporting purposes.

The council says several sports clubs are interested in the park, and Cashmere Technical Football Club and Lancaster Park Cricket Club have made formal requests to use the land.
