We are pleased to advise that Russell Broadbent MP on behalf of the Commonwealth Government has recently confirmed a $7.5 million contribution to the project. This, along with significant contributions from the Victorian Government and Latrobe City Council forms the base funding for stage 1 of the project.
Stage 1 works include the development of a Civic Hub building, featuring:
• a new library;
• council service centre;
• public meeting and research rooms;
• consulting suites;
• public toilets;
• café; and
• public plaza and green roof.
This project aims to revitalise Moe’s CBD by delivering important new community infrastructure. Through improvements to amenity and liveability the project will act as a catalyst to attract new investment and drive business opportunities.
The new civic open spaces will be able to be used by the community for a variety of activities such as public gatherings, markets and performances and will encourage community interaction by creating useable green spaces which will be safe and appealing areas.
Works to be carried out in subsequent stages include the development of a public plaza, streetscape improvements, reconstruction of George Street into a public transport interchange, construction of landscaped and open green spaces, and a youth precinct.
The design stage is complete with the exception of adjustments to be made to accommodate the project now being delivered in stages rather than all at once.
Current and Completed Works
Moe Powerline Undergrounding - Project Update
The Powerline Undergrounding Project has now been completed. The improvement to the streetscape along George Street is dramatic.
The night time lighting is now clear and bright and provides safety and security improvements.
The completion of these works will enable the next stages of the Moe Rail Precinct Revitalisation to proceed.
Moe Rest Station
Public toilets, bus/taxi shelter, town clock and landscaping
The rest station in George Street Moe is now open and includes unisex and accessible toilets as well as baby change facilities. The town clock will provide a focal point within the new civic precinct. Both are located close to the proposed youth precinct which will have a range of facilities to encourage use by all ages and is close to the proposed picnic and barbecue areas
