This started life as a weblog for those living in the Avonside area of Christchurch in 2011 & 2012, and for anyone else looking for information or news on earthquake assessment, rebuilding, and related matters.
Now it operates intermittently as and when it would be useful to comment on events or issues relevant to Avonside or the way New Zealand handles disasters and insurance.

As at 1.00 pm yesterday (Friday) Swanns bridge was open, as was the Swanns end of Retreat Road (although it is closed to through traffic and a local safety warning has been issued - see below).
The Woodham Road end of Avonside Drive remains closed although there is no obvious reason why this should be so. Perhaps the road was fixed and someone forgot to take away the signs?
