Auckland Central CBD areas
Auckland’s streetscapes and parks have received much recognition for shared spaces establishing more pedestrian-friendly areas for public activity.
Project Design Brief
The Elliott Street and Darby Street Upgrade required both council and designers to integrate a shared space. This was built above fibre optic cables, where along its corridor, cable pits were used to provide secure access.
To preserve the visual continuity of the pavement, designers specified ACO’s ‘Telecom approved’ ductile iron access covers. The unique feature of this cover design is that its rib substructure is located beneath the pan allowing for an unobstructed placement of pavers.
