  • Works to revitalise the foreshore, including footpath and lighting upgrades
  • New pedestrian crossing lights to improve accessibility
  • Pavement and drainage improvements to reduce the chance of flooding 
  • Intersection upgrades, making them safer for all users

All works are expected to be completed by mid-2021.
