Where we are working

We're working right across Christchurch

EQC and Fletcher EQR have completed more than 20,000 substantive repairs (all earthquake damaged fixed) and 45,000 urgent repairs (work done to keep a house safe, secure, sanitary or weather-resistant). We’re working right across greater Christchurch through more than 20 EQR hubs.

The 'substantive repairs' map shows the locations of all full repairs as at 20 June 2012 (PDF 983KB).

The 'all repairs' map show the locations of all full repairs, urgent repairs and home heating installations (PDF 1.63MB). As you can see, most of the city has seen some form of repair work from EQC and Fletcher EQR.


TC3 drilling plan

The drilling plan for suburbs in Technical Category 3 (TC3) is below. Please note that this is subject to change.

The plan only covers under cap properties in TC3 as part of the Canterbury Home Repair Programme. The expected end date for this plan is March 2013.

However, EQC is in negotiations with insurers over a full collaborative programme and this is subject to change. The expected end date for the full programme (including all over cap claims) is March 2014.
