The Christchurch trams officially opened

27 November 2013
The Christchurch trams were officially opened today with Mayor Lianne Dalziel cutting the ribbon at a ceremony in Cathedral Junction.

The Wizard blessed the trams - before Mayor Dalziel donned a driver's cap and took the controls of a tram which she drove under guidance to the Civic Offices.

The trams last week began carrying passengers for the first time since the earthquake and will continue travelling a shortened route between New Regent Street and the Canterbury Museum until next year when their old loop track along Rolleston Avenue and down Armagh Street will reopen.

Mayoral Forum: 'Christchurch the Resilient City'

2 November 2013
Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel hosted a forum of more than 80 local community representatives and elected representatives to seek ideas on how to make Christchurch a resilient city. The Mayor was joined by guest speaker Laurie Johnson, a USA-based urban planner who talked about her work with communities around the world on planning and implementing post-disaster recovery. Laurie Johnson has studied most of the world’s major urban disasters and in 2006 she was a lead author of the recovery plan for the City of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. She has visited New Zealand three times since the 2010/2011 earthquakes.

Also presenting at the forum were Margaret Jefferies on the work of Project Lyttelton, and Liz Briggs on the post earthquake community support provided by the Lyttelton Time Bank.
