Helicopter used to test Sumner cliff stability

A helicopter has been using a 700 litre monsoon bucket to test the stability of the Richmond Hill cliff in Sumner Christchurch. Geo-tech engineer Jan Kupec explains the intention is not to clear or repair the cliff, but to get an engineering assessment on how it is likely to behave, not only in the short term, but over a longer period of time.
