Because trucks often crash into the wall of Gothic Construction’s head office site located on the corner of William Nicol and Kingfisher, they decided to replace the brick wall with an architectural gabion wall. This wall, installed by Petron Engineering’s Mr Ronnie Dagnin, is made up of 22 separate sections so that only the affected section would need to be repaired if a truck was to drive into the wall again – this would reduce the overall repair cost. Apart from the implied cost efficiency, this structure also adds an aesthetic appeal to the intersection, attracting a lot of admiration from passers-by!
