A section of one of Christchurch's main one-way streets is reopening for the first time as the city continues to recover from devastating earthquakes

One of Christchurch's main one-way streets will reopen fully on Sunday.

The section of Madras Street between Tuam Street and Latimer Square will be opened to traffic from 3.30pm. This is the first time the section of the road has been open since the magnitude 6.3 earthquake on February 11, 2011 struck the city. A diversion has been in place until now.

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority chief executive Roger Sutton and Mayor Bob Parker will cycle from Latimer Square to the Tuam Street corner before declaring the road open.

Damage to roads has made travel difficult in parts of the city since the earthquakes.
