Why Were the Barriers Extended in High Street Rangiora?

Recent evidence before the Royal Commission looking into the 22 February quake in Christchurch has suggested that some post-September barriers were too close to the buildings.  As bricks fall, they sometimes bounce or roll.

An engineering reassessment of the Lambert building resulted in the barriers being pushed out further.

The barriers outside Robbie’s have also been pushed out a bit, although the strengthened lower storey means that only the upper storey is at risk, and this is likely to fall straight down.
