The project began in July 2016 and was completed in February this year with the total $2.36 million project.

The upgrade includes relocation of pedestrian crossings, newly paved footpaths, stormwater infrastructure and revitalised gardens.

Councillor Jan Chambers, Portfolio Chair for Major Projects, says the upgrade was initiated as part of the 2011 Placemaking Strategy.

“The project included new road surfacing at the McDowall and Arthur Streets intersection, and provision for kerbside dining and the community Christmas tree.”

“Be sure to come down and celebrate the official opening and the lighting of the town’s Christmas tree. While you’re there, check out the fresh new look of the improved CBD and see how great the gardens are looking.”

The celebration will take place at the intersection of McDowall and Arthur Streets.
