Standing proud.

Great to see it standing proudly and glad it survived the quakes. A masterpiece, a tribute to strong Cantabrians who lived and died, poignant too.

The Bridge is near one of the entrances of the Re:Start mall. It looked like it was ok to walk along to get to the arc.

Plaques, rosemary in relief, and the wars etched in stone ... there is nothing which sets this bridge apart from any other war memorial.

Definitely worth a stop and reflection while you're in the CBS and visiting the Container Mall, Avon or Christchurch Cathedral. The Bridge of Remembrance has been restored following the earthquakes.

The memorial on the bridge is now open and a fitting entrance to Cashel Street. It is a memorial to World War 1. Get your camera out.

Now a gateway to construction and repairs, the bridge is still a wonderful spot to visit and spend a few moments. The river and surrounding area is currently full of repair materials and as it was a cold rainy day, it did not really do much to show the true beauty of the spot. I do however, recommend a visit.

This pedestrian bridge across the River Avon is central to the Central Business District, and worth a bit of time to read the inscriptions.
