Walk around Avondale after earthquake
Update: 22 June 2011
Avondale is now considered to be a redzone and will be dismantled as a suburb.

4 March 2011 [earthquake 22 February 2011]

Starting from Niven Street, Avonside Drive down to Avondale Bridge; down Avondale Road to Breezes Road past the Avondale shops then left in to Cardona Street down to Pembroke Street and then to Avonside Drive and back up to Niven Street

It was rather treacherous ... sink holes under asphalt, liquefaction covering sinkholes, unstable fences all around and the possibly of an aftershock happening made walking by powerlines and trees quite an eerie feeling.
