    Greetings from Vancouver! Actually I’m about to head home after a busy week exploring the city and meeting up with many of the world’s foremost experts on matters cycling at the VeloCity Global 2012 cycling conference.

    I spotted this cycle infrastructure plan idea over on the new Ministry of Awesome website the other day and wondered what everybody else thought. Is this the correct layout? Do we need more? Any other stuff?

    For anyone who has spent the past 20-odd months living in Christchurch, the importance of a solid foundation is pretty obvious. Otherwise sturdy homes and other buildings were no match for ground conditions that turned into quicksand when the big shakes came along. People will be paying a lot more attention to things like geotechnical

    Its been 15 months since the big Quake and the council and the heritage people are still debating whether to fix or replace the Antigua Boatshed Bridge – and find money to do it. Needless to say, if it had been a bridge for cars it would have been fixed up pretty darn quick! This
