Te Kaha taking shape

Construction of Te Kaha – Canterbury’s Multi-Use Arena is continuing at pace, according to Christchurch City Council.

The Council says the arena’s western stand is now at full height, and the first of 40 radial trusses was installed just before Christmas, marking a new phase in the construction project.

“Four more radial trusses are being built on site and will be lifted into place by crane in the coming weeks. The trusses are key pieces of structural support for the roof of the arena and work to build and install these will continue throughout 2024,” the Council said.

Within the western stand, framing is being installed along with services and the building lining.

The project remains on track to open in 2026.
