Artwork to be given away

•From page 1

“It is just something new. It

took a while for people to get

their heads wrapped around it

was bubble wrap,” she said.

The artwork was grided up on

a pixelated map. The bubble wrap

was then hung over the artwork

and individual bubbles injected

with colour.

Eventually, the food colouring

will evaporate. It will take about

six weeks to disappear, Elizabeth

said.

The bubble wrap will then be

recycled.

It is not the only artwork

brightening up the mall.

A 4.8m x 3.6m high string mural

resembling bugs and featuring

more than 4000 screws were

installed.

“For the string art it was multigenerational

– the older people

remember doing that when they

were younger,” Elizabeth said.

The Hub Hornby centre manager

Jason Marsden said every

year the mall tries to do something

with an artistic creative

aspect to inspire people.

Once a year the mall hosts

an art-related installation event

which gives artists the opportunity

to interact with customers

during construction.

In the past, these have

included giant sand sculptures,

kinetic sculptures made from

recycled materials and giant

coffee cups made from paper

cups.

Mr Marsden said the mall

would like to donate the string

artwork to a public space in the

community.

Residents frustrated

with cycleway decision

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FRUSTRATED residents have

been left feeling “ignored” after

a decision to construct a $38

million cycleway along their

street.

The South Express Major

Cycle Route was approved by

the city council’s infrastructure,

transport and environment

committee last week.

It will run from Hagley Park

through Riccarton, Upper Riccarton,

Sockburn, Hornby and

Templeton.

The contentious cycleway has

raised concerns with organisations

including the Greater

Hornby Residents’ Association,

Riccarton Community Church

and Lochee Rd residents.

Lochee Rd resident Ron

Greaves said the committee

was a “joke” and residents were

ignored.

Last week a petition of about

47 signatures was presented

by resident Kurt Hewson opposing

the cycleway running

down Lochee Rd.

Mr Hewson said he felt

“frustrated” going unheard

and it appeared the decision to

have the cycleway run through

the road had already been

made before it was approved.

They were concerned over

how the cycleway would cause

a loss of residential parking

and impact trees and landscaping.

Before giving the cycleway

the green-light, the committee

resolved to make several final

changes to the city council

staff’s proposed design before

approving it.

These changes included

placing an alternative route

down Taggart Pl instead of

the cycleway going from Middlepark

Rd to the Epsom Rd

intersection.

A submission from the

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association described the

cycleway as an “ill-conceived

plan” and no input from the

community had been taken

into account.

Association treasurer Ross

Houliston agreed residents

weren’t listened to throughout

the process. It raised a number

of concerns including over the

city council’s proposal to not

install a full set of traffic lights

as part of the cycleway at the

Gilberthorpes Rd/Waterloo Rd

and Parker St rail crossing.

School’s not

for everyone!
