Public access to Heroes Square closed as upgrade works begin

Work to add new features to Heroes Square ahead of the next National Heroes Day ceremony in January 2020 has begun.
 
The works include plans to add new statuary to the site, and for the semi-circle planters currently in each corner of the square to be incorporated into the proposed monuments.

To prepare for this construction, a number of plants - including some bull thatch palms currently located within the project’s footprint - are being uprooted and re-potted.

They will eventually be relocated around Heroes Square and elsewhere.

Public access to Heroes Square will be closed throughout the construction, the first phase of which is expected to last for several weeks.
