Brougham Street Bridge 3D Design Testing

As part of our Brougham Street Upgrade, we’re planning a pedestrian/cycle overbridge across Brougham Street between Collins Street and Simeon Street. 

We now have a skeleton design for the bridge, and we would like to test this with small groups of people who are likely to use the bridge to make sure our design is as usable as possible.

If you would like to give us a hand with this early testing and you meet the below criteria, we would love to hear from you. These test sessions will be a little different from our engagement so far, we will be using images and a 3D digital model to do this testing. 

We would like to hear from you if you:
• Are a parent/guardian who regularly crosses Brougham Street with children to get to and from school.
• have a child at a nearby primary or secondary school who travels there or back without an adult and needs to cross Brougham Street.
• Are a pedestrian or cyclist who commutes and regularly crosses Brougham Street.

Participants will take part in a 1.5 hour group session, and there will be a gift of a $75 Prezzy Card to thank you for your time.

Feedback sessions will likely be held between Wednesday 26 April and Thursday 27 April during the day or early evening at Te Kura Taumatua Addington Primary School.

If you would like to take part, please email your name and a contact phone number to the project website - and please write ‘Bridge Testing’ in the subject line.

We will then be in touch with the dates and times, and to book you into a session.  

Please also feel free to forward this email if there is someone you know who would be interested and fits our criteria.



When will we all get to see the design for the bridge?

Once we do the testing, we will make any tweaks needed and then share the design on our website. We hope to do this within a few weeks. We will send out a follow up newsletter to let you know the design is posted. 

The design will just show the bare bones of the bridge, we will still have a way to go to add in many of the details like treatments, lighting, and landscaping.
