Four wayfinding towers have been installed around the Central City to help people find the places they want to visit.
Christchurch's Central City has lost many of its landmark buildings that people relied on to navigate their way around.
A need was identified by local businesses and tourism operators that residents and visitors have been finding it difficult to navigate around the Central City - the towers were developed to meet that need.
The wayfinding towers will help people to work out where they want to go and how to get there - they provide a visual reference, highlight key points of interest and indicate walking times between them to allow people to find the best route. This benefits locals, visitors and businesses alike.
The towers have been designed to be seen easily from a distance, informative, multi-purpose and durable.
The wayfinding towers are a part of the Council's Transitional City programme which is important as it provides an opportunity to trial new ideas and ways of doing things, helping to improve the pedestrian environment and connect recovering business areas
The Towers are being installed in four places (see map for details), in car parks on the corners of:
Oxford Terrace and Worcester Street
Armagh and Colombo streets
Cashel and Manchester streets
Colombo and Lichfield streets
