On Monday night the CHAT club held a workshop to discuss passenger rail in Canterbury. Thanks to everyone who came – there was a good turnout with representation from general public, city and regional councils, university, various government agencies, consultants and community groups.
We started off with 3 short presentations:
- Brief history of passenger rail in Canterbury (Axel Wilke)
- Light rail options for the city (Glen Koorey)
- Relationship between rail and housing (Brendon Harre)
The slides for these presentations are available here for anyone interested.
We’ve gone through all the maps and notes that were scribbled down, and have posted a summary of the key themes.
We’ve also planned a second workshop for 25 March and a public invitation has now been published.
