    • 5 January 2017

    One of the rebuild projects slowly taking shape in the central city is the Avon River Precinct. Already we’re seeing some really nice urban spaces around the Worcester-Cashel section of Oxford Tce. What’s not so clear yet is just how it’s supposed to work as a cycling corridor; there has been very little detail of

    Anyone who has been around the southern part of the central city lately can’t help but notice the road construction work along St Asaph St. A key part of this street reconstruction is the creation of a westbound one-way cycleway to parallel the eastbound one on Tuam St. Parts of it are starting to take

    The last two weeks have been a little bit frustrating as we have been trying to get our website onto a new site and make a few layout changes as well. There’s still some layout tweaks to go, but at least we’re live again! The last two weeks may have also been interesting for those of you who ride in central Christchurch, thanks to the latest addition:

    • 5 December 2015

    A little while back I showed you some of the great facilities inside the new central city bus interchange, such as covered bike parking and easy access to buses. Now I’d like to show you some of the facilities immediately outside the interchange – some of which have gained a bit of notoriety (even before

    • 2 October 2015

    While it’s been partially open for a few months now, with the second stage of the new Christchurch Bus Interchange now completed, it seems timely to have a look at it and see how it works for cycling (we’ll look at the surrounding cycleways in a future post). Let’s start with the interchange itself. As

    The street works around the central city continue to materialise fairly quickly, and just as quickly are the consultation plans for the next ones. A few months ago we saw the planned changes to Hospital Corner, Durham St, and Manchester St (I’m happy to report that the revised tweaks are mostly an improvement on the

    Return to Christchurch: Cycling works underway3

    • 24 July 2015

    I’ve been back in Christchurch for a little over a fortnight, trying (unsuccessfully) to ward off various colds and bugs. There’s still a few more reports to come of my visits around Europe, but I’ve also managed to start looking around Christchurch to see what has been happening while I’ve been away. As reported previously,

    At times it can feel like nothing is ever getting done for cycling around Christchurch. Some of us have been used to that for years (no, decades…) but, now that so much has been promised post-quake, we’re like excited (and then frustrated) kids waiting for Christmas to show up. However, as the rebuild gets into

    Have your Say – More “Accessible City” Projects12

    • 24 May 2015

    Well, construction is moving along rapidly on street works around the central city, and just as quickly more “Accessible City” transport projects are out for consultation. The third set of Accessible City projects are open for submissions until this Tuesday and I have to say I’m generally rather underwhelmed… In this latest batch, there are

    This is the second in an occasional series of posts on cycling related matters. See Part One here. Some of the same issues then are repeated. While it is about infrastructure, it reflects on an underlying culture of staff employed to carry out the rebuild. This time it is about bridges. 1) Antigua St Bridge was

    Late last year we introduced you to the planned first central city transport works happening around Hagley Park and Hospital Corner. Just before Christmas, the diggers started work and have now largely completed the first phase and moved onto parts of the works further into the central city. So it seems an appropriate time to

    Happy New Year! A quick little post just to show what’s bubbling away in town while we’ve all been on holiday. You’ll recall that the first works of the CBD “Accessible City” transport projects were approved before Xmas and are currently under construction. That includes a new 4m-wide shared pathway alongside Hagley Ave. The final
