Interesting...I guess the city will have a whole new style to it, eventually.

Good article.

I'm sure it will.

How is the people of Ch CH taking it Ocker? Is it putting a strain of the population? Has the event changed the spirit?

how sad.. that place has had its soul ripped out of it.. i met a guy in Vietnam who was from Christchurch and he just left and moved to Auckland, i guess a lot of the pop moved.. too devastating to rebuild..

The aftermath of that will linger a very long time.

There are thousands of people still waiting to get rebuilt or even know whats happening , arguments with insurances Cos , with the Gov EQC , and now Council with NEW building laws , courts cases galore ! shoddy cowboy builders , get money and disappear , multi millyuns wasted and disappearing into a few pockets , all repair work on roads and drainage is being do on hourly rates , and NOT ON SET CONTRACT !! so there's 6 men doing 2 mens work , If there's three machines on a site , 2 of them are getting rusty tracks , the "SELECTED " contractors dont want to finish ! NO WAY , this is a gold mine !!
people are at the end of their tethers, they have lost interest in anything to do with trying to improve their homes
For instance , Meself -- in the 12 month period BEFORE the Quakes I did 47 commissions --- in the nearly 4 years since , Ive only done about the same amount but nearly all of those have gone overseas or to other parts of NZ
very few locally, ---

I moved there last year looking for work - Got told to Eff off even though I just got my Class 2 Truck, Wheels, Tracks and Rollers licenses (Earthmoving) not to mention having already a Forklift license.

The city is still shït, the roads are a joke, when New Brighton floods they put out warning signs about biohazard liquid (raw sewage)

I came back up North (Island) and am never going back. ğck them all.

Strange, I'd think they would be begging for people to help out.
