Auckland Story for 22 May 2013 - Halfway Down

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:30 pm on 22 May 2013

First it was just a road; twenty years ago it became a song, now its art. Composer Don McGlashan's song 'Dominion Road' has become the subject of a piece of guerrilla art, halfway down Dominion Road. Nobody's letting on 'who done it', but the handsome brass plaque was secretly installed in the pavement outside 788 Dominion Road proclaiming "You are standing halfway down Dominion Road". The organisation in charge of Auckland's footpaths, Auckland Transport, has agreed it can stay. David Steemson went on a hunt.
