The surface, a stone aggregate material made with recycled glass, was the same as the painted green surfaces being used on cycleways around the city, Dunedin City Council transport group manager Richard Saunders said.
It was designed to improve pedestrian safety and was being tested on the footpath below the bridge near the Roslyn village shops, which was a shaded spot known to have problems with daytime ice, he said.
The surface was more expensive, costing $500 for the trial section, but could be deployed in other parts of the city, depending on the results of the trial, he said.
