Kingston SE Main Streets Stimulus Project
This main street upgrade project will see our three main streets create a unified precinct that provides accessibility for people of all ages and levels of mobility.
Widened footpaths, improved cross-overs, capacity for alfresco dining and landscaping will create a vibrant and inviting area for tourists and locals alike and will create opportunities for increased tourism, economic growth and place activation activities.
The project will take-on an additional dimension through the arts with Council recently securing Federal Government Funding to work with the community to produce an Integrated Public Art Strategy.
The design for this project has been developed in close consultation with the community. Extensive alterations were made to the original design after receiving valuable feedback through these consultation processes.
Notification of construction works
The main construction component is scheduled to commence on Monday 27 April 2020, which will begin on Agnes Street at Gough Street to Charles Street, and associated intersections. The main construction stage is anticipated to be completed over approximately 14 weeks (allowing for delays due to inclement weather over the winter season), and will involve various streetscape works on Agnes, Holland and Hanson Streets.
Our hard-working and approachable contractor, Stephen and his team, will do all they can to minimise disruptions to local businesses and traffic during the construction phase. Given the nature of the project, some inconveniences and delays are to be expected. Further detail on the construction works will be provided by Council and SE Excavations throughout the construction works via Council’s website and Facebook page.
We look forward to seeing the Main Streets concepts, planning and visions for this project be brought to life!
