Funding for the infrastructure rebuild is being provided through Christchurch City Council, Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) - now transferred to the Deparment of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).
Council is currently completing an inventory of retaining walls to confirm which are publicly and which are privately owned. Public walls will be repaired, where necessary, through the SCIRT infrastructure rebuild. Private wall repairs will be the responsibility of the landowner.
Other city infrastructure such as facilities and buildings was damaged in the earthquakes. The Christchurch City Council will manage the repair/rebuild of this city-owned infrastructure.
