Upper Mary Street Revitalisation
The Upper Mary Street Revitalisation Project was identified as one of a number of priority projects to “provide a significant contribution to overall Town Centre revitalisation and encourage investment and improved economic development” (Gympie Town Centre Revitalisation Strategy Scoping Study).
The Upper Mary Street – Preliminary Concept Design (for streetscape improvements between Monkland and Channon Street), was endorsed by Council on 13 May 2015, as part of a comprehensive Gympie Town Centre Urban Design Projects Package.
The project aimed to improve the view of the street’s unique and historic buildings. It involved installing new street furniture, laying new footpath treatments, and planting street trees for added shade.
Construction is now complete
Construction contractor TLCC commenced works in August 2019. All major works were completed in March 2020 with the street being reopened to two-way traffic and parking.
Budget and funding
The Upper Mary Street Precinct Revitalisation project is co-funded under the Federal Government's Building Better Regions Fund ($1.5m) and Gympie Regional Council ($1.5m).
