coloured lights, previously strung from pole to pole in Rangiora’s High Street and
on wooden boards on the street light poles in Kaiapoi, are well past their
best and so old that replacement bulbs are no longer available. Businesses, the

trees along Rangiora’s High Street will be lit, along with two large trees in
front of the Council building. Further street lighting options for Rangiora
Town Centre will be considered in Council’s Long Term Plan.
Kaiapoi, four plane trees in Raven Quay and the large tree on the south eastern
corner of the Williams Street Bridge will have up-lights, and approvals were made
for six in-ground LED lights for established trees in Trousselot Park.
This is the
first stage of lighting for Kaiapoi with plans to replace the lights under the
Williams Street Bridge and to install new street lights along the bridge.
Centres Manager Simon Hart says “This lighting is another great step forward
for the regeneration of the Kaiapoi Town Centre following the recent
developments along the river banks. The community has been telling us how much
they’re enjoying the enhancements and vibrancy of our main street.”
