Christchurch City & Sumner Amenities: Work in progress
Christchurch City has undergone a significant transformation following a series of earthquakes, back in 2011. A major rebuild of the city-centre remains in progress. Cycle-ways and walkways feature prominently and attractive landscaped pedestrian-only areas created by the Avon River are complimented by a new and thriving cafe culture, but currently limited under COVID 19 restricted operations.
Guests who arrive at the airport, and have minimal luggage, can take the option of catching a metro bus ( the Purple Line) out to Sumner and disembark directly opposite Le Petit Hotel at 16 Marriner Street. On the route out to Sumner, some of this work can be seen close up. In particular as the bus travels along the causeway adjacent to the estuary, and the well patronised new coastal pathway is plain to see. When staying in Sumner, we thoroughly recommend taking a leisurely stroll along the walkway that extends now from the Ferrymead Bridge all the way to Scarborough.
Sumner Village itself has now been re-imagined with the emphasis on pedestrian and cyclist safety.
Marriner Street/Wakefield Avenue road surfaces have been up-graded and asphalted and a new speed limit of 30 K/h, is now in place.
