Birds to brighten Bunda Street pavement

 Released 10/04/2015

 Birds will begin to brighten Bunda Street this weekend with the  commencement of pavement art to decorate the new shareway before its completion in late-April, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury, announced today.

 “A flock of the iconic gang-gang bird will permanently fly along Bunda Street in a road pavement artwork specially designed to brighten up the shareway,” said Mr Rattenbury.

 “The  artwork, designed and developed by local artist Geoffrey Filmer with inspiration drawn from Melbourne company Buro North, will help make Bunda Street feel less like a conventional street and more like a plaza, increasing the street’s vitality and making it more pedestrian friendly.

 “The community will be able to view the completed artwork when the Bunda Street shareway is opened in late-April.

 “A special community event will be held on Mother’s Day, Sunday 10 May 2015, to celebrate the opening of the shareway. There will be a range of activities on Bunda Street to share in on the day including bike themed events, giant oversized games, cooking class demonstrations and street chalk art.”

 Mr Rattenbury said the Bunda Street shareway, between Mort and Akuna Streets, is the fourth stage of the ACT Government's Civic Cycle Loop project. It features a slow speed (20km/h) 'shared space' for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

 “Bunda Street is coming together as a vibrant shared space that especially values people,” Mr Rattenbury concluded.
