Project Update: Spiire Australia Pty Ltd has commenced the detailed design process for the Meninya street Upgrade. Spiire has recently completed a feature survey of the streetscape to support a detailed review of the existing features and the previously developed concept designs to ensure the proposal is feasible. The next steps of the design process include the completion of geotechnical investigations, service location and the commencement of a functional design to test practicality and functionality of the street further.

Geotechnical Investigations and Service Locating will be occurring from February - April, with physical service location occurring from April to May. Please keep an eye out for changing traffic conditions and footpath closures during this time.

The Meninya Street Precinct Project is one of Murray River Council’s largest projects that will transform Moama into a vibrant precinct of social and economic activity.

Reshaping Meninya Street from a transport thoroughfare into a innovative and sustainable precinct, this project intends to position Moama as a key tourist destination through place-making to compliment surrounding markets.

Strategically investing in infrastructure, parks and open spaces and surrounding points of interest, Council aims to create a 'sense of place' and support high intensity developments including multi-level and multi-function spaces for business and the community to thrive.

Delivered in a staged approach, the multi-year project will enhance not only Meninya Street, but the surrounding precinct to create stronger connections to points of interest including the Horseshoe Lagoon, Moama Beach and the surrounding natural environment.


To see what Meninya Street could look like in the future, take a look at the concept animation below!

    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.
