Work to fix Christchurch flooding problem fast tracked

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 24 September 2020

Work to fix a decade-long flooding problem in Christchurch's east is being fast tracked to start next year.

Pages Road - a main thoroughfare to New Brighton - often floods when it rains, creating havoc for both drivers and pedestrians.

One frustrated councillor actually dug a trench himself - solving the problem overnight.

Now the council has approved funding for a more permanent solution.
