Auckland's newest and highly anticipated addition to its network of cycleways is Te Ara I Whiti, a transformation of the old Nelson Street off ramp into a must-see Auckland attraction.
Te Ara I Whiti was officially opened to the public on the 3rd of December 2015, marking the completion of phase one of the new cycleway which begins at Upper Queen Street and weaves its way to Victoria Street.
PSP worked with Monk Mackenzie Architects, Hawkins Contruction and Fel Group, specifying PSP PLEXIGLAS Satinice Snow Acrylic to create bespoke vertical towers which illuminate the brightly coloured pathway.
Lance Vazey, Project Engineer for Hawkins Construction commented that "By using PLEXIGLAS Satinice Acrylic, we were able to achieve the perfect lighting solution. The material was lightweight, fingerprint resistant and had very good UV properties — all features that were important when considering lightbox materials for this project."
Almost 300 lightboxes were installed on the path, creating lighting with billions of possible colour combinations. The unique illumination properties of PLEXIGLAS Satinice made it the superior choice for this project. It is also widely used in other applications such as:
- Retail displays
- Shop fittings
- Interior designs
