Works are now underway on the Moe Rail Precinct Revitalisation Project – Stage 1. The construction of the project is now in full swing with several trades now working at the site and the structure of the building starting to take shape. Construction activity is set to ramp up over coming months and be complete in early 2016.
What’s in the project?
- a new library
- Council service centre
- public meeting and research rooms
- consulting suites
- public toilets
- 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.
Works to be carried out in subsequent stages include the development of a public park, streetscape improvements, reconstruction of George Street into a public transport interchange, construction of landscaped and open green spaces, and a youth precinct. Subsequent stages of the project are contingent on availability of funding.
