The Transmission Gully motorway mobile visitor centre provides Wellingtonians with a glimpse into the construction of the new 27 kilometre motorway that is taking shape to the north of the city.
Housed in a 20 foot container, the visitor centre has been designed to be transported around the region to provide information for communities along the route as well as all Wellington residents. It includes an animated fly-through of the new motorway, photos of construction progress, and a series of information panels about the project. The exterior features a specially commissioned mural painted by local Porirua artist Anthony June (Antz).
Transmission Gully motorway Construction Project Director, Boyd Knights says the visitor centre has been a popular source of project information for the community during its stay in Porirua and he expects it will receive a steady flow of visitors while on the Wellington waterfront.
“Much of the project is progressing out of public sight so the mobile visitor centre is a great way for people across the region to learn more about how we’re constructing the new motorway and our keeping up with our progress,” says Boyd.
The mobile visitor centre located next to Te Papa in Circa Square.
We’d like to acknowledge local Porirua graffiti artist, Anthony June (Antz) pictured below, who created this spectacular Transmission Gully motorway mural on the outside of the mobile visitor centre in March. Antz has worked on a number of projects with the Porirua City Council, and was also involved in Chorus’ broadband cabinet art initiative.
