NEWCASTLE'S Hunter Street Mall controversial balls are gone. The concrete balls were snipped from their mountings by contractors last week and sent to a site by the harbour at Honeysuckle. Their future, according to Newcastle City Council, lies somewhere in the redevelopment of the Honeysuckle foreshore.Their removal is part of the council's planned "de-cluttering" of the mall.
