Re:Start, a temporary retail complex in Christchurch, New Zealand is the inspiration for a possible pop-up shipping container court facility in Canberra.

A temporary court facility constructed from shipping containers could be built in the ACT, while a new courts facility project is under construction.

The ACT Attorney-General Simon Corbell told a budget estimates hearing that $4.2 million has been set aside for a possible temporary Supreme Court facility on vacant land adjacent the Magistrates Court, as reported in the ABC.

Corbell referenced temporary shipping container developments in the earthquake-ravaged city of Christchurch, New Zealand, as precedents. The Re:Start shipping container mall was built while the city awaits a new permanent retail complex.

The attorney-general said a pop-up container-court could be deployed to ensure there are no disruptions to court operations during the construction of the new facility. []
