Removal of the earthquake damaged footbridge over the Avon at Medway Street.
Tuesday 12 February 2013.
The footbridge twisted dramatically during the September 2010 and featured widely in news broadcasts at the time as symbolic of the power of the earthquake.
The footbridge linked the suburbs of Richmond and Avonside.
