Police will be retrieving vehicles from the Farmers car park today after contractors spent the night reinforcing the access ramps into the building.
Work on retrieving vehicles from levels one and two of the damaged Smiths City car park is also continuing, with the assistance of contractors and the building owner. A crane is being used to lift the cars out of the building.
Sergeant Bruce Adams says police will contact vehicle owners after their vehicle is retrieved from these car parks.
He is also urging people with vehicles in other areas of the CBD to continue bringing in their keys to the Vehicle Recovery Team.
Vehicle owners should also bring reasonable proof of ownership and some photo identification, such as a drivers licence, to team's base located at the Armagh St entrance to Hagley Park. They will be asked to fill out a registration form, including contact details. The team is available between 7am and 8pm daily.
