More than $5.5m spent repairing and maintaining Christchurch's new justice precinct

From Morning Report, 8:18 am on 16 December 2019

More than $5.5 million has been spent maintaining and repairing Christchurch's brand new Justice and Emergency Services Precinct.

The Ministry of Justice says the cost of repairs is not out of the ordinary given the size of the complex, which houses civil defence, corrections, court staff and first responders.

But the PSA has hit back, saying its members are annoyed at the disruption, and the building not only has too many repairs, but it's also too small.
