The intersection of Roberts and Ruapehu streets has undergone a major makeover and is now open for pedestrians and traffic to use.
The intersection is an important entry point into town and serves as the gateway from the lakefront to the town centre. It was upgraded to address security concerns and encourage people to linger longer in the area.
The intersection now boasts new street furniture, gardens and paved areas in place and we think it looks great!
TR Construction carried out the work on our behalf and has also built four median islands to improve pedestrian safety, which have been planted by our gardeners.
The Roberts and Ruapehu streets intersection was the fourth major CBD intersection to be upgraded in recent years, all featuring lower, less intrusive planted areas and a modern timber, stone and concrete design.
Go and check it out and enjoy the new intersection experience!
