The $1.15million project, which received $557,125 in State Government funding, included the upgrade of two key tourist areas which are centrally located within the Goolwa township and provide a gateway to the Historic Goolwa Wharf Precinct.
The project involved the upgrade of the Goolwa Terrace/Cadell Street intersection to provide an attractive alfresco dining area and community meeting space, and included the removal of a slipway fronting the existing shops. The slipway was replaced with a vibrant alfresco dining area incorporating seating areas, public art and shade via attractive street trees. The Project also included the upgrade of BF Laurie Lane to provide an attractive and inviting entrance to the Signal Point Complex, historic buildings including the old horse stables (currently occupied by the Goolwa RSL), old police station (currently occupied by the South Coast Regional Arts Centre), Railway Superintendents Cottage (currently occupied by Alex-FM Radio) and Goolwa Wharf Precinct by constructing a contrasting shared zone within the existing avenue linking to the alfresco dining area and community plazas created at the Goolwa Terrace / Cadell Street intersection. Streetscape work extended to Cutting Road in front of the Visitor Information Center to improve the pedestrian access and provide a pedestrian crossing point with pedestrian refuge, one of three installed as part of the project.
A new off-street public car park is now open on Loveday Street.
