    Return to Christchurch: Cycling works underway3

    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,

    Cycling projects underway around Christchurch5

    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.

You’ll recall that the first works of the CBD “Accessible City” transport projects were approved before Xmas and are currently under construction.
