This infrastructure improvement project adopted a ‘place-based’ approach

The local community board was actively involved and gave direction.

The design for the interchange incorporates an oversized shelter to accommodate additional seating, improve the visibility and clarity of pedestrian movements.

It also provides a canvas for public art that was developed by the local artist Filipe Tohi in collaboration with Michelle Ardern.
