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.

Community input

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.

Project feedback

The Meninya Street Precinct Project has been driven by community and business' feedback since its commencement in 2018. The Meninya Street Master Plan was lead by Council as well as the businesses and community members to outline the goals, objectives and priorities of the redevelopment. This included community workshops, public consultation and Council endorsement.

In 2021, a Project Advisory Committee was formed to assist in the progression of the initial master plan through the development of concept plans (June 2022) and a video animation (February 2023). The Project Team received overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding the proposed designs, albeit with concerns regarding car parking and intersection design in key areas.

The video animation, concept design and original master plans can all be viewed above.

Next Steps

The Project Team has now commenced Civil Design with Spiire Australia Pty Ltd to prepare detailed designs for the construction of the streetscape. Detailed designs will be based upon documentation developed to date and will incorporate feedback received.
