Our Mainland Live page offers readers the chance to have a question about the region answered. Here, a Christchurch resident queries when a central city demolition will finally be completed.

Q: When will they finish demolishing the building near the corner of Lichfield and Madras (next to the NG Building) so that the road can go back to the normal lane configuration? At the moment cyclists have nowhere to go and slow down the impatient cars behind them.

A: Cera will be managing the remaining demolition to take place at 216 Madras Street and planning for that is now underway. An exact timeframe cannot be given at this stage.

How do you feel about the city's first anchor project, the Avon River Precinct?

Fantastic. It will transform the city

Ambivalent. The city needs more than a river precinct to recover

Not impressed. The design narrows the river
