The upgrading of Mellor Street between Amy Street and Lady Mary Terrace aims to revitalise important elements of the one of Gympie’s busiest commercial and residential hubs.
Mellor Street is the link between Gympie’s Heritage Rail and civic precincts and is unique, in that it accommodates local businesses as well as residential houses.
These proposed improvements look to add aesthetic and practical value to Mellor St, not only for traders and residents, but visitors to our region.
- The planting of trees, shrubs and garden landscape elements
- Renewal of the existing footpath and kerbing
- Reducing the speed limit to 50 km/h
- Formalisation of on-street car parking
The project is entirely funded with $500,000 from the Queensland Government Works for Queensland program.
Construction is scheduled to commence in November 2018 (weather permitting) and finish in February 2019.
Council will be holding community consultation and engagement sessions prior to construction.
