Taranaki Cathedral may reopen sooner than expected

Preliminary estimates give rise to cautious optimism


Bishop of Taranaki, Archbishop Philip Richardson has expressed cautious optimism that St Mary's cathedral in Taranaki may reopen sooner than expected as initial estimates based on preliminary engineering design work indicate that the cost is much less than originally expected and the time required for the work will also be less than anticipated.


St Mary's was closed on January 31st 2016 when a Detailed Seismic assessment found that it ony met 15% of New Building Standards, making it a serious risk in an earthquake.
