Work on site of the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial is under way. Ground excavation is currently being done after sheet piles were put in place.
Work was completed on the north bank of the Memorial site in time for the 5 year anniversary.
The Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial on the banks of the Ōtākaro/Avon River in Christchurch, New Zealand, will provide a space for people to reflect on the devastating events that changed Canterbury forever, it will honour those who lost their lives on 22 February 2011, and acknowledge the shared trauma and support received with the recovery operation that followed.
The entire memorial will be completed in time for the commemorations on 22 February 2017.
