Image 1. When cracks appear in the read wider then your foot where do you start fixing them? - The answer - they didn't they started with the ones big enough for someone to stand in

Image 2. Whole sections of the road just shifted, this is right on the coast away from the CBD

Image 3. The raw power of a quake, twisted and mangled foot bridge across the river Avon, thankfully this was damaged in the September quake which hit in the early hours of the morning so no one was on it.

Image 4. Whole sections of ground - I wish I could say this was unique to the river banks but is evident across the city and suburbs.

Image 5, 6, 7 & 8. Damage is everywhere,

It's unbelievable isn't it - It really does have to be seen to really understand just how wide spread the damage is!

I blogged about it, if you're interested http://www.weirdbutinagoodway.co.uk/blog/2011/06/02/the-remnants-of-a-quake/

I know these streets. I've cycled around them (Christchurch is a good cycling town). I'm guessing that bridge goes over the Avon. I've strolled along there. Makes me feel very sad.
