Port Campbell's town centre revamp is able to commence following the announcement by the Federal Government that it will fund the project.
This complements a State Government contribution announced in June this year as well as Council’s budgeted contribution to the project
The $15.6 million streetscape is the largest infrastructure project in Corangamite Shire’s history and the greatest investment Port Campbell has ever seen.
We want to move decisively on this project while the area is quiet to reduce the impact on business with major works scheduled to commence in winter once the peak tourist season subsides. The final plan incorporates a long list of features requested by the community, including:
- Timber decking lookout and picnic areas under the Norfolk Pines
- A wider main road than first planned to cater for professional fishermen
- 90 degree parking has been retained and foreshore traffic remains two-way
- Al fresco dining on the foreshore
- Fisho and surfer’s carpark remains the same
- New street furniture and bike racks
- New lawn areas, garden beds and trees
- Integrated art by Vicki Couzens
- Bus parking moved to Lord Street, opposite the tennis courts
- Foreshore amphitheatre
- More car parks
