    A magnitude 7.8 earthquake in the vicinity of Kaikoura, along New Zealand's South Island east coast last November, substantially wrecked the railway infrastructure and the adjacent State Highway 1. Amazingly, the railway will reopen in about a month, but the road is taking a full year to reinstate.
