Christchurch police are imposing tight restrictions in central Christchurch from 6.30pm Feb 23rd for public safety reasons amidst fears of further building collapses.
District Commander Superintendent Dave Cliff says the area within the four avenues (Deans, Moorhouse, Fitzgerald and Bealey) will be off-limits.
Police say all members of the public, including the media must be out of the cordoned area by 6.30pm, or they risk arrest.
