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.

Please note that the Bridge of Remembrance is currently off limits to the public and is to undergo structural alterations to secure its stability in the event of another earthquake. The explanatory boards about the engineering works that will be undertaken may be of interst to those with an engineering bent.

What can I say the bridge is really pretty overlooking the water. The bridge itself suggests a long interesting history just based on its architecture. Worth a look, but keep in mind while Christchurch is still in the process of rebuilding the CBD there's not much else to look at here

The bridge told us a story and the river and we found the surrounding area ideal for picnic lunch. Again with great weather the day we visited we enoyed ourselves.
