Christchurch earthquake - Reminder of cordon access

Christchurch earthquake - Reminder of cordon access


The central city of Christchurch remains cordoned off between the four Avenues (Bealey, Fitzgerald, Moorhouse and Rolleston).

All emergency service personnel and contractors can access the city cordon only via Moorhouse Avenue and Montreal Street. Appropriate photo ID must be carried.

Media access to the Art Gallery is via the same intersection with a valid press pass. If the press pass doesn't have a photo another form of photo ID, such as a passport or driver's licence, must be presented.

Rubber-neckers continue to be an issue in the central city, preventing easy movements of vehicles which are providing crucial support to the rescue operation such as construction workers. Police once again urge people not to travel into the central city area unless it is essential.
