    Around three thousand buildings in Dunedin are likely to need earthquake-risk assessments

    Around three thousand buildings in Dunedin are likely to need earthquake-risk assessments



    Work's underway to identify which buildings are most at risk, even though the city is a low-risk seismic area.

    Assessments have been completed for 63 buildings owned by the Dunedin City Council, and it says two thirds of them are not earthquake-prone, including the Dunedin Railway Station.

    The remaining third is likely to be classified as earthquake-prone.

    The council's first earthquake-prone building was the Edgar Centre, where seismic strengthening work was completed last year
