iCity Kiosk relocation
The City of Perth is pleased to announce that work will commence on the new iCity kiosk shortly.
The first stage of this project will involve the decommissioning and relocation of the current kiosk to a temporary location in the Murray Street Mall outside 140 Perth (formerly 140 William).
The relocation of the current kiosk will take place on the morning of Monday 12 May 2014.
The kiosk will be closed from Wednesday 7 May to facilitate the relocation and will reopen at 9.30am Tuesday 13 May.
This will allow site works to commence for the new kiosk, which will be built off-site before being pieced together on-site.
The work is expected to take approximately three months.
