Sprucing Up Our City

21 March 2011

We're going the extra distance to spruce up parts of Wellington's central business district.

With a record number of visitors expected for Rugby World Cup 2011 and an increase in graffiti, good impressions are particularly important. Yesterday we sent out crews to do more than their usual cleaning in Cuba Mall and the Left Bank.

They blasted away dirt, removed graffiti and stickers, touched up paint and improved the look of gardens and street furniture. Work will continue throughout the week.

We are asking all private building and business owners to please help us make our city look attractive.

You can do your bit on an ongoing basis by following some simple tips in a brochure we've produced. You can find this brochure at:
