Avonside

Many homes are still without water and power. Roads are badly cracked, some impassable. While the majority of homes appear to have minimal damage, some have been yanked entirely off their foundations. Mud and silt is filling the river and spread across the roads, driveways and pavements, with sand volcanoes spewing out of cracks in the tarmac. While homeowners are working hard to clean up, dozens of sightseers armed with cameras are touring the neighbourhood.

“Top end of Flesher Ave between Evelyn Couzins Drive and North Avon rd, 8 houses structurally damaged liquefaction mud all over the road burst mains, no sewage no water telegraph pole almost down wires hanging on the road, road impassable.”

A group of Christchurch residents felt the council has abandoned them as they are still without basic services almost three weeks after the magnitude 7.1 earthquake.

The red zone of Avonside (bordered by Retreat Road and the river) would be a perfect recreation area for Cantabrians and tourists as it's close to the city. Something different - inner city farm??
