New Panel For Kingsland's Gateway Marker

This week we were in Kingsland replacing the panel at the foot of the town's well-known Gateway Marker.

Kingsland-stainless-gateway-marker-2

Initially created using a laser-etched laminate, the original panel did not standup to the northerly aspect and harsh New Zealand sun.  The new panel, created using laser-etched stainless steel, gives credit to Albert-Eden Local Board who funded the Gateway Marker and supports a QR Code which links to Kingsland's website and offers information about local businesses, parking, train schedules and more.
