New Seating in Public Areas

12 July 2011

Over the last few months we have been installing seats and benches along popular walking routes and at bus stops mainly in the southern and eastern suburbs and the Aro Valley.

We've installed one of the new seats outside Newtown Primary School

Some of the seats are made of environmentally friendly and recycled plastics and are extremely hard wearing and easy to clean. Other benches are made of timber with steel frames.

Two seats installed outside the hospital in Mein Street, Newtown, are proving popular with hospital staff on their breaks.

Another seat on the opposite side of the road is well-used by parents who sit in the sun and wait for the three o'clock bell to ring at Newtown School.

Due to popular demand, a park bench has been installed on Calabar Road, near the airport. This bench is prime real estate for plane watching as well as resting if you're going for a long evening stroll.

Several new benches at Wakefield Park on Adelaide Road will be ideal for sport lovers using the new artificial sportsfields.

And students are now able to enjoy the new seats on Hanson and John Streets, near Te Whaea - the National Dance and Drama Centre.

These seats provide a great resting spot for those needing to take a breather or just waiting for the bus.
