Life in the Christchurch CBD Red Zone….

Due to the fact that the Christchurch City Council does not do any maintenance in parts of our street (ie cleaning, removing rubbish, fixing water leaks etc) in the red Zone fenced off area,  we have taken to doing our own rudimentary “street sweeping”.   It is a dirty,  wet, smelly and unhygienic mess.  We got tired of the mess being walked into our factory area!

I wonder if we have to join the Road workers union?

Just think Wellington has all this to look forward too!

It’s a beautiful day, our consent has come through for our new toilet block and Christmas is fast approaching.

PS. As of today  some new “bicycle racks and repair station”, on the corner of High and St Asaph streets, have just been “unveiled”, for some reason this did not warrant an official ceremony, I see no sign of Gerry or Bill English! In fact I have never seen any of them in 6 years.  Could it be because it is a tragic waste of funds in a dead-end street in front of a building that has had no repairs done in 6 years.  But I would say that!

They would look amazing if the street was fixed, they are very clever, a cross between an artwork and a practical funky bike stand!
