Mellor Street

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. 


Project summary/objectives

The initial improvements to Mellor Street include:
  • 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 

Project budget

The project is entirely funded with $500,000 from the Queensland Government Works for Queensland program.

Project timeframes

Following stakeholder engagement, construction is scheduled to commence in late February 2019 (weather permitting) and finish in June 2019.

Council will be undertaking further stakeholder engagement sessions prior to construction.
