Update on Port Hills fire – 8am Monday

  • Geotechnical assessments have started on the slopes above Dyers Pass road by geotech engineers from Christchurch City Council and Aurecon. The focus is to assess the risk of rock fall and boulder roll to homes below the slopes where the vegetation has been burnt off. Getting this information is one factor in assessing the risk to enable people to return to their homes. 
  • There is a briefing with all agencies involved in the emergency at 8.30 am and information presented at this will be updated in our next message to you at 9am.
