Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

It’s al­most time to say good­bye to Lower Queen Street as we know it. From May un­til 2019, the area in front of Brit­o­mart train sta­tion will be­come a con­struc­tion zone for the City Rail Link. Last year’s re­moval of buses al­lowed the street to be taken back by the pub­lic. Ar­ti­fi­cial grass, sur­face paint and art­work was in­stalled to cre­ate the pub­lic space which was used for in­stal­la­tions, food stalls and com­mu­nity events. It will now be trans­formed again as con­trac­tors pre­pare to build CRL twin tun­nels. The pack down of the area be­gins in May.
