Ashburton carpark do-up U-turn

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

By local democracy reporter Jonathan Leask:

Tinwald businesses which have only just seen the end of a sea of road cones have told Ashburton's council they don't want to see the orange markers return.

The shops along State Highway 1 had road cones from July until last month while traffic signals were installed for the Tinwald corridor improvement project.

The Ashburton District Council had then planned to come in and resurface the main Tinwald car park.

Infrastructure and open spaces group manager Neil McCann said work has been deferred following some objections.

“We reached out to shop owners in the Tinwald shopping centre, and they said they would like a breather after the disruption caused by NZTA’s Tinwald traffic light installation and corridor improvements.

“We will check in with shop owners again to determine an appropriate time to commence the upgrade.”

Roading manager Mark Chamberlain said the resurfacing will wait “until there is a bit less going on, and maybe look at when it really needs the work”.

“I think it needs it now, but they are happy with just pothole patching and things like that.”

With the Tinwald carpark project being deferred, the $100,000 assigned to it will be used for another project on the council's list.

“We’ve brought forward the installation of around 200m of new footpath, and kerb and channel on Tinwald Westerfield Rd, from Lagmhor Rd to Tarbottons Rd,” McCann said.

“This section was in the original list approved but was left out of the contract because the estimated cost was more than the available budget.”


Another key project on the list is replacing the kerb and channel at the Ashburton Domain along Walnut Ave between SH1 and Oak Grove.
The only issue is the timing.

Councillors had previously raised concerns about the height and depth of the existing kerb and channel but mayor Neil Brown had noted the height was a deterrent to people being able to drive into the domain.

The current kerb height, about 50mm higher than the standard, WAs similar to the proposed replacement but has a dish channel rather than the proposed flat channel, which made it less accessible, McCann said.

But there is a potential timing issue, as the work could clash with the council’s major event in the domain.

The Glow in the Park light festival will be held in the domain at Kings Birthday weekend this year with thousands expected to attend over the three days.

The work did not have a scheduled start time yet, McCann said,

“It will be programmed and managed so that access and parking for Glow in the Park will not be adversely affected.”

Michael Hurst brings a glorious dose of masterful storytelling to Circa Theatre with his latest show The Golden Ass from 20 April!

Coming at you full force via ancient Rome, this free-wheeling adaptation is laugh-out-loud funny and subversively philosophical.

The original, written almost 2,000 years ago by Apuleius, is the only Latin novel to survive in its entirety. In this riotous adaptation Hurst takes his audience on a wild ride, bringing a fresh and funny take on this fantastical, hilarious and sometimes terrifying tale.

The Golden Ass is a tale of epic proportions, and a powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad. 

“riveting, salacious and very funny.” – Stuff

The Long Term Plan is open for consultation and we want YOUR input.

We have two main topics we are consulting on. These are:

🚌Should Greater Wellington own the region's bus assets (depots and charging stations)?

Should Greater Wellington own 100% of CentrePort?

The region's buses are owned by private companies and operated on our behalf. We are proposing the ownership of buses, depots, and charging infrastructure to provide long-term security and future-proof facilities.

Currently we own 76.92% of the shares for CentrePort. We are proposing the purchase of the remaining 23.08% to establish 100% control of the shares. Full ownership means CentrePort will remain in public ownership and enable us to determine its future.

Do you know someone who deserves to be honoured for the work they do in the community? Nominate them for a Porirua Civic Award!

Nominations for the awards close this week, Friday 12 April. Running in the city since 1993, they recognise people who have contributed to Porirua with their leadership, inspiration or commitment, often behind the scenes and out of the public eye.

Porirua Mayor Anita Baker says our city is full of residents giving up their own time for their neighbourhood, suburb or the city as a whole. These awards are a way to put worthy recipients in lights – even if it’s just for one night.

Past recipients have been recognised for things like maintaining a walkway near their home, helping with elderly care, supporting their local church, and volunteering their time and energy with a sports group or club.
