More than half the $1.4 billion spent so far on fixing Christchurch's damaged infrastructure has been used for the eastern suburbs, but frustrated residents want authorities to do more.The money gets spent where the roads are most broken. Bromley, New Brighton, Aranui and Bexley were wrecked; Fendalton and Ilam rather less so.
Meanwhile, central government contemplates selling off downtown land it never should have taken in the first place.
The place is maddening. Fortunately, you can't beat Wellington on a good day. And today is a good day.
