Visited on Tuesday 22nd May. We went search for the container shops and were disappointed they were nolonger there. I guess for the locals things are getting back to normal and a new shopping centre will open on this spot soon.

Unfortunately the container mall has been deconstructed, and Cashell Street is just another street in Christchurch. Not sure that it is a tourist attraction or activity as such.

I saw some photos of containers along this street. When I arrived, there were all gone. I was dissapointed. Still, this street is a good to walk though.
