Legana Main Street Project
Updated 26/06/2019 - The construction of the two plazas are nearing completion, with recent works including:
- Drainage works to Plaza area and installation of raised concrete planter beds.
- Pouring of kerbs to lower planter areas and footings for street furniture.
- Water, power and telecommunication connections.
- Foundations and electrical supply for Plaza shelter.
- Lighting to raised planter beds.
- Traffic light trials.
- Preliminary works for landscaping.
The next month will see the final touches being added to the Legana Main Street Project. The planters in the Plaza area are being filled, and paving will begin next week. The shelter has been painted off site and is ready to be installed. Landscaping to Legana Boulevard, Legana Grove and the Plaza verges will follow, along with street furniture installation.
The new Boulevard has been sealed from the intersection with Freshwater Point Road to the Legana Recreation Ground. The new traffic lights at the Freshwater Point Road/Brigalow Street intersection have also been installed. They will not be turned on until line marking and other works are completed.
Whilst the final road works around the new Boulevard are finished, access to the Tyre Mechanic, the Reject Shop and the Salvation Army may change. Current works have limited access to the southern end of the Salvation Army Car park and vehicles are unable to travel around the side of the building. This area won't be accessible until the plaza works are completed and the main street is opened to the public.
Council apologises for any inconvenience caused during this time. This web page will be updated to keep local residents, businesses and visitors to Legana informed of any changes to the construction process.
In addition to the construction of the new street, Council will undertake consultation for a new Tasmanian Planning Scheme which includes future plans for the Legana Town Centre.
Any questions and comments about the project should be directed to Council’s Municipal Planner on 6323 9300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The project has been made possible through a generous contribution from the Federal Government.
