Te Ara I Whiti was officially opened to the public on 3rd 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 to create bespoke vertical towers which illuminate the brightly coloured pathway. Lance Vazey, Project Engineer for Hawkins Construction commented that “by using PLEXIGLAS® Satinice, we were able to achieve the perfect lighting solution. The material was lightweight, finger-print 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.
