  • sensors that capture crucial data on air quality made available to City stakeholders to be used for clean air initiatives
  • a police override function for public messaging on the main screen, in case of an emergency
  • public messaging to promote the City, local services, and events in collaboration with Belfast City Centre management and Visit Belfast
  • a 999 button that connects directly to the police, fire, and medical services in case of an emergency, or if someone feels intimidated or vulnerable
  • a free-to-use touchscreen interface to access local maps, services, facilities, and visitor information provided in collaboration with Visit Belfast
  • free public WiFi so people can enjoy connectivity around Belfast City Centre
  • free local and national calls and mobile phone charging

The works involved:

  • Removal of existing europhone phone boxes
