Spring cleaning at Neuer Wall
THE STREET’S NEW/OLD FACE RADIATES A NEW/OLD SHINE
For the first time in 10 years, the light-coloured granite sidewalks on Neuer Wall were given a cleaning – with an outstanding result. With colours ranging from light yellow to beige and rosé, the stone looks as fresh as it did on the day the cornerstone was laid in 2006.
In order to avoid disturbing storeowners and residents, the cleaning work was performed at night. The company Metras worked with gentle high-pressure steam-cleaning machines, and with their specialised equipment, they also easily avoided the 140 planters.
The cleaning work is part of the 2016 spring cleaning, which is intended to preserve and strengthen the quality of Neuer Wall as the luxury mile.
Other worked planned for the spring of 2016: repainting planters, repairing saggings, improving loading-zone signage, installing new bicycle stands, painting benches, new plantings in the large planter.
