TRAIN FOR THOUGHT: Lauren Gilbert, 15, left, and Josh Campbell-Tie, Josh Oliver, Aaron Kuek and Will Sloane, all 16, of Burnside High School, work on their design plans for the new bus interchange.

The city's new bus interchange should be a mix of the old and the new, with the feel of a train station, say a group of year 12 students tackling the challenge of designing it.

The five Burnside High School teenagers are jumping into the city rebuild via the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority's "The Amazing Place" competition, which invites Christchurch youth to develop a project that is part of the rebuild.

The competition closes on July 29. The top prize in the year 12-13 category is $10,000, with $5000 for the runner-up.
