Project update November 2022

Works start - Morris Street/Tregea Street footpath

It’s official - works have started! The footpath works have started on Morris Street/Tregea Street,

The Council Works team will deliver this small but very significant part of the Port Campbell Town Centre Project - a 295 metre footpath along Morris and Tregea Street.

This project will be completed by summer to minimise disruption to local businesses.

After discussions with Tregea Street residents and further assessments, it has been decided that a concrete footpath is not suitable beneath the Norfolk Pines on Tregea Street (as originally planned).

Instead, a new concrete footpath will run along the residential side of Tregea Street, providing a continuous link between existing pathways and easier access to the beach.

Please note that some form of pathway is still planned for the Norfolk Pines side of Tregea Street.

Do you have a story to tell?

Vicki Couzens’ integrated art will form an important part of the project.

Her artwork will tell a story of interconnectivity, kinship and community, using design and materials that reflect the local environment.

Some general themes for the artwork have already been identified at previous community meetings.

These are:

  • Ocean stories - rescue, whales, fishing
  • Soldier settlement
  • Historical - general
  • Connection to place and family

Vicki will be at the site office (34 Lord Street) on Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 November to meet with groups or individuals with a story to tell relating to the themes above. Feel free to call in and have a chat.
