 Warrnambool City Council (WCC) city centre renewal schedule will see the reconstruction of four city blocks over 2017 and 2018.

This replaces the original schedule which involved four stages delivered over six years.

“This is a fantastic project for our community,” Mayor Cr Kylie Gaston said.

“The renewal will enliven and enrich our city centre and create a space that will attract more people.”

The revised schedule will see the project delivered in two stages.

Stage I will include two block of Liebig Street between Raglan Parade and Koroit Street, to be completed between February and October 2017.

Stage II will include Liebig Street between Koroit and Timor streets; and Koroit Street between Liebig and Kepler streets.

Stage II will be delivered between February and October 2018.

The City Centre Renewal is a $15 million project. Warrnambool City Council has committed $5 million towards the project and in December last year the Federal Government announced it would provide $5 million for the renewal.

Council is awaiting the outcome of an application to the State Government seeking a further $5 million.

Council also adopted four construction management principles in order to help minimise the impact of construction works.

The principles are:

  • Maintain regular communications with businesses and the community throughout the project
  • Maintain access to businesses for pedestrians during business hours
  • Maintain, as far as practicable, traffic flow for vehicles through the construction site during business hours
  • Maximise, as far as practicable, customer parking and designated loading zones for businesses during business hours
