George St closed for three-day festival

Loading ....


The hope is fewer cars will lead to more feet on Dunedin’s main street this weekend.

At 9pm yesterday, the Dunedin City Council closed George St between Hanover and St Andrew Sts to northbound traffic.

It will reopen at 8am on Monday.

Public event Glow will run from tomorrow to Sunday for which performers and installations will fill the street during the day while lights from artist Angus Muir will be lit from 5pm and 9pm daily.

The closure will affect bus services 3, 5, 8 and 10.

They will be diverted in both directions, travelling up and down Great King St and turning back on to George St at the intersection with Frederick, London and Pitt Sts.

It is the first in a series of trials and activities which will allow the public and the council to experience what the block might be like under the preliminary concept plans for George St.

Council principal urban designer Kathryn Ward said closing the street last night allowed time to set up for the event.
