Tag: Rainbow Crossing

Location: cnr Dixon and Cuba Street, Wellington View on Map

The New Zealand Transport Authority opposed the rainbow crossing saying that it would be confusing for motorists and pedestrians because it looked liked a pedestrian crossing 'There is a high risk of confusion and a dazzling and distracting effect.' The crossing was launched in 2018 on Carmen Rupe's birthday (10 October) to honour her legacy.
