Welcome to a wrap of what's happening in Christchurch today.


Morning showers should clear and a southwesterly will die away for a high of 16 degrees Celsius.

Tomorrow a high of 22C is expected, but a late change will bring rain and southwesterlies, Metservice says.

Rain will ease to showers on Thursday and the southwesterly will remain for a high of 17C.


No traffic incidents have been reported by police in Christchurch this morning.


Q: During the period of the road works earlier this year that closed the causeway/main road through McCormacks Bay, the No 3 Sumner bus was re-routed along McCormacks Bay Rd. What consideration was given to continuing to use this route along McCormacks Bay Rd after the main road to Sumner reopened?

A: We have considered this for Route 3, however it is not something we are planning to implement. This is due to the extra travel time the longer route would add for passengers travelling to and from Sumner, and the difficulty turning right out of McCormacks Bay Rd on to Main Rd at the Redcliffs end due to limited visibility at this location. However, Route 21 will return to its McCormacks Bay Rd terminus once the repairs on Soleares Ave are complete next year. Environment Canterbury
