This Sunday 30 September marks the start of Daylight Savings, and is also the day that Christchurch’s tsunami warning sirens will be tested. We may not hear them in Papanui, but you may if you’re near the sea on Sunday around 11am. Click through for more information: https://
Tsunami warning sirens will be tested this Sunday, providing a timely reminder of the importance of residents knowing the correct evacuation zone for their home.
Following the recent community consultation (link below), it looks like Marble Wood Drive won't be getting the proposed parking restrictions, at this stage at least. Council staff have reported to our Community Board that "Following analysis of the submissions and a change in local conditions, staff have advised that they will continue to monitor the situation and revisit the proposal in the New Year if required. All interested parties have been notified accordingly."

If you’re used to exiting from Prestons Road onto Main North Road, please be aware that you’ll need to take another route for the two weeks from this Saturday 29 September. As noted, this will likely put pressure on Daniels Road, but at least traffic volumes will be down a bit due to the school…
More disruption coming for Redwood residents! There will be no exit onto Main North Rd from Prestons Rd from Saturday 29th September until Sunday 14th October.
Please try and be patient during this time, as the likes of Daniels Rd will no doubt be extra busy over this period with Grimseys Rd closed as well.
Ali Jones Papanui Innes Community Board Chair, has published a statement on the Main North Road bus priority project. “…the Papanui Innes Community Board has recommended that there be no bus priority lane on Main North Road, from the corner of Harewood Road to the north side of Winston Avenue … Along this stretch there are a couple of businesses … This will ensure there are nine car parks available for customers.” Click through read the full statement: https://www.infonews.co.nz/news.cfm?id=117086
“A desire to meet the needs of as many people as possible while still delivering an effective bus corridor, is behind a change recommended to the Christchurch City Council regarding bus lanes in Papanui.”
