Have you noticed something new at Papanui Library? The library is exhibiting artwork created by local young people, based on the theme for Youth Week 2017: ‘Our voices count, count our voices’. Young people from Papanui High School, Casebrook Intermediate, Te Ora Hou Otautahi, and Te Kaupapa Whakaora (TKW) Alternative Education participated. There is a temporary exhibition inside the library, and the window art is planned to be in place for the next twelve months.

Take care on Cranford Street today, as a traffic island is installed at the Fraser Street intersection.
At last Friday’s meeting, the Papanui-Innes Community Board’s decisions included approval of a Give Way control at the Winters Road / Fraser Street intersection, and grants from the Positive Youth Development Fund and Discretionary Response Fund. The board also requested Council staff urgently investigate traffic congestion along the length
of Sisson Drive and along Sawyers Arms Road. The next meeting will be held on Friday 9 June at 9am. A copy of the minutes can be found here:
Motorway construction updates:

2. Tomorrow Friday 2 June a traffic island will be installed at the intersection of Fraser Street and Cranford Street.
Chaneys on-ramp update from NZTA: northern motorway changes at the Chaneys on-ramp have been postponed: “Unfortunately these changes didn’t happen yesterday due to some issues with the pavement. We now expect to close the Chaneys on-ramp and open the new neighbouring one-laned diversion road mid-June. We will update you as soon as we have a confirmed date.”
Roadworks are starting to install the speed management measures for Grampian Street that the Papanui Innes Community Board approved in April.
Motorists heading north please note: from next Tuesday 30 May the current Chaneys on-ramp will be closed to make way for construction work on the Christchurch Northern Corridor. You will be able to instead use a new diversion road which will be opened next to the on-ramp. Please be aware of the changed traffic condition and take care, and note that you may encounter congestion at peak times.
