Dom Rd plaque set to stay

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A piece of guerilla art­work cel­e­brat­ing Do­min­ion Rd is here to stay.

The brass plaque read­ing ‘‘ You are stand­ing halfway down Do­min­ion Road’’ was in­stalled in the pave­ment at 788 Do­min­ion Rd in March.

The artist re­spon­si­ble wants to re­main anony­mous but says it is a trib­ute to the street and Mut­ton Birds front­man Don Mc­Glashan.

It was put there with­out Auck­land Trans­port’s per­mis­sion and the Al­bert-Eden Lo­cal Board started a cam­paign to keep it.

An Auck­land Trans­port spokesman says the or­gan­i­sa­tion is happy for the plaque to stay and will re­in­state it when the road is up­graded in 2015.
