About the project
Overall the Project intends to:
- Enhance infrastructure within the Meninya Street and the surrounding precinct to improve services, safety and accessibility for all users.
- Drive economic development and stimulation within Moama through place making exercises and behind the kerb investment.
- Implement innovative streetscape designs incorporating sustainable infrastructure and greenery.
- Design a pedestrian orientated environment, and connect people to places of interest.
- Enhance existing and create new connections through multi-function spaces, connecting paths and facilitating multi-use precincts to support pop-up events, markets and day-time/night-time economies.
- Reimagine side streets, laneways and parking to meet future population growth and development.
- Complement, not complete with Echuca.
To support Council in successfully delivering this Project, an Advisory Committee has been established to provide input and guidance into the Project Team on behalf of the Community and Businesses within the Echuca Moama Region. A total of 9 members were selected across varying sectors to form the section 355 Committee that will meet a minimum of 4 times per year to support the delivery of the project.
In July and August 2022, we took the draft concept designs to the public to ensure we had captured the needs of all interested stakeholders.
The Project Team received extensive feedback and went back to the drawing board areas including intersections, footpaths and car parking. A big thank you to everyone who took the time to provide feedback.
Amendments to the concept designs have been included into the new Video Animation showcasing what the street could look like in the future. This was released for public comment during February and March 2023.
The animation can still be viewed above.
Once feedback from the animation is consolidated, the Project Team will commence the Civil Design process, where the Road, Medians, Footpaths, Storm water, Power and other critical services will be designed before construction can take place.
