You can see the archway of the but the bridge is still boarded up. Not much to see at the moment. Always worth a walk by to see if it's complete

The bridge is still cordoned off after the earthquakes damaged it 5 years ago. However, there are signs up explaining that restoration work is in progress. It is viewable but will be far better once you can walk across it again.

The memorial arch and bridge were damaged during the 2011 Earthquakes. The Arch has been restored and the target for the completion of the bridge strengthening is April 2016. Newly developed memorial Terraces with inscriptions carved into the stone are also reaching completion.

This beautiful arch is being salvaged and rebuilt as part of the development of the heart of the city. Underneath the scaffolding it is possible to see the original archway.

Repairs on this bridge and monument are still ongoing. Unfortunately, that means that the entire area is fenced off and it's impossible to even take a look at the bridge. All you can see is the gate and scaffolding surrounding it.

Being a Loyal Memebr of the ROYAL BRITISH LEGION (Alderney Branch, RNVR) I admire the peace of this shrine. Sadly it was seriously damaged in the 2010/2011 Earthquakes and restoration is in Progree. But it still stands majestically across the Avon from Cashell Street and is a fitting tribute to those valian t men andd women who served New Zealand... More

We were saddened to see this covered in scaffolding 4 years on from the earthquake. It was and will be again a beautiful memorial to kiwis lost in overseas conflicts. IT really needs to repaired asap to allow us all to get closer and read the inscriptions

Unfortunately the bridge is still cordoned off while repairs are done, I understand this will be a long process and may not be completed for 12 months or more.
