The 5th of 21 street lamps to be installed as part of Mischa Kuball’s Solidarity Grid.
It was installed in 2013.
The City of Sydney donated a SmartPole as its contribution to Solidarity Grid. It is installed at the Salisbury Street end of Park Terrace.
The SmartPole is representative of the pole system used in Sydney’s busy streets to reduce streetscape clutter by accommodating a range of pole-mounted accessories for use in street lighting, banners, CCTV, telecommunications technology and traffic signals. For Christchurch application, a streetlamp and a flag will be affixed to the SmartPole.
Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney, says, “The City of Sydney is pleased to offer a SmartPole streetlamp to Christchurch for the Solidarity Grid project. On behalf of the City, I wish Christchurch every success for the rebuild.”
