Hurstmere Road Streetscape – A Street for People
It has now been a year since the completion of the Hurstmere Rd streetscape upgrade project ‐ Te Panonitanga O Hurstmere Road.
The upgrade of Hurstmere Road has successfully transformed a formerly tired, vehicle-dominated and low amenity street into a revitalised open, vibrant beachside retail destination that is focused on people, all on a relatively modest budget. It is a showcase of a street that has been successfully retrofitted for flexibility and truly designed as a space that is first and foremost for people not cars.
So when is a street more than just a street? When it's a market space, an art space, an event space, a celebration space, a shared space or a social space. Or combination of them all.
