This is close to parts of the very seriously damaged areas of Christchurch. Kingsford St Queensbury St shocking with substantial structural damage to homes, many of them on leans now. There is a lot of liquefaction in this area. Power was out for days, water out for ages, portaloos are still around in the streets.
Liquefaction was very bad here with in some places the silt coming up over 30cm on peoples houses. Massive cracks appeared along some roads, with some of them big enough to walk in.
The Burwood birthing hospital was closed for a few weeks and suffered substantial structual damage.
After February 22nd more houses were damaged and liquefaction was everywhere. There is a question mark over the ability to repair the land here.
After June 13th this suburb is in bad shape. Liquefaction has made a big mess here.
