What Happened To All The Fish And Chip Shops In Chch?

Postby mfw on Tue 8/Mar/11 9:11pm

I have now ridden through a lot of suburbs during my modified commuting and I am staggered by the number of fish and chip shows that have fallen to bits in the earthquake :o

So much so that I now have a theory that the fumes from chip pans must be weakening the buildings :o

Does anyone have a better explanation :ib:

They probably like to build 'em in mostly brick/concrete type buildings due to the hotass oil being an epic fire risk. Concrete/brick buildings get totally fucked in earthquakes (as you've probably guessed by now...)

2 in Bishopdale on Wairakei Road are open.
So's the one corner of Milton and Colombo.
And the one on Barrington near Milton.

Haven't noticed any shut actually.

Gerry Brownlea has decided hes going to build a healthier city so he ordered the Bulldozers in on the ones that were still standing.

He can do shit like that.

More likely Gerry Brownlee demoed them trying to get at the fried foods inside... The man looks like a stranger to salad...

I bet that 99% of fish n chip shops in Chch were not purpose built to be fish n chip shops, therefore you point is void.

My observations match with mfw - known F&C shop demises;

Bowhill Road (near Keyes) - instant pile of rubble on the ground
Pages Road (at Breezes Road intersect) - western wall fell off
Centaurus Road (just west of Colombo) - fenced off awaiting demolition (already half-jiggered on Sept 4)

My theory is that there are a lot more double skin brick buildings around Chch (and many other NZ towns & cities) than anyone would ever have guessed if asked before Sept 4 / Feb 22.

And there have been some seriously worrying failures on some modern buildings I've seen on eastern side of Chch (eg; Eastgate Mall - large bits of tilt-slab wall off the Farmers & Warehouse boxes).

Uggh, so gee, when you were thinking of setting up a fish and chip shop you don't think you might want to pick a fire resistant building to put it in? :baaa:
