New vision for Power St

14 May 2015

New vision for Power St Image

By Louis Blake

Citylink has run a creative competition to garner ideas to transform the Power St loop.

Over 50 concepts were entered in the competition for the revitalisation of the unused urban island that is surrounded by the exit ramp from the Domain Tunnel.

The winning idea (pictured) is entitled Habitat Filter by Matt Drysdale, Matt Myers and Tim Dow.

The sculpture would be fitted with an array of solar panels with the design also including a series of rainwater storage tanks.

The designers said that their entry was an attempt to “create a sustainable urban sculpture and land care project on the site.”

Four other designs were awarded prizes while 11 received honourable mentions. A feasibility assessment will now be carried out on the four ideas that were awarded prizes.

The project will be undertaken by Landcare Australia with construction to commence in the first half of next year.  

The Power St restoration is the first in series of roadside projects planned by Citylink.
