Node two - update
Planning the streetscape
The design inspiration for location two is the mosaic located outside the Meeting Place, part of a community-led bush tucker art project launched in 2008. An early artists impression is included below and you can see the mosaic on the footpath outside the Meeting Place. Detailed streetscape design, incorporating this mosaic inspired artwork, will be shared in further updates.
Implementation of the street scaping design is proposed to follow the completion of the drainage works. However this is subject to budget approval for next financial year.
Drainage works – what to expect
In the meantime, we’ll be commencing in ground drainage works at the intersection of Jenkin Street and South Terrace, starting on 13 May 2019 and taking up to 6 weeks. Access will be maintained during this time; however, at times traffic may be reduced to one lane.
Traffic management will be in place at all times to facilitate safe traffic movement. The drainage works will include installation of new pipework, replacement of damaged soak wells and installation of new drains. The drainage upgrade is to prepare for the next section of the South Terrace streetscape improvement.
