The Earthquake Commission's Canterbury Home Repair Programme has passed the $1 billion mark, with more than 30,00 jobs completed on quake-damaged houses.
Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee says the programme is on its way to completing 31,000 jobs and in recent months there has been big increases in the volume and value of repair work.
Mr Brownlee says billing fluctuated between $55 million and $66 million a month between July and November 2012.
He says in December, $72 million worth of repair work was done for a cumulative total since the scheme began of $1.003 billion.
Some 30,748 full scope repairs have been completed and the programme is more than a third of the way through the homes that sustained up to $100,000 of damage from the quakes, he says.
