After four and a half years, there is some progress in Christchurch with rebuilding the city. Here are a few photos. You will notice a lot of flat ground – this is where buildings have been demolished and are yet to be rebuilt. A lot of street art on the sides of buildings (photos to come), a lot of green flat spaces made into temporary parks until the fate of the land is determined.
As you can see we are still living in a mess, road cones and security fences. But things are starting to take shape. I’ll add more when I get a chance.
On February 22nd 2011, Christchurch experienced a life changing event. A series of Major Earthquakes, today in October 2015 we still feel small aftershocks every now and again which brings all the memories flooding back. Here are some photographs of Christchurch after the first major earthquake on February 22nd. These are photos from our house which was not badly damaged, just badly shaken.
Chris got on his bike and made his way around the city as most of the roads were closed. This is what he saw.
