The City of Stirling will be revitalising the Mount Lawley commercial precincts' public areas along Beaufort Street, between Walcott Street and Queens Crescent.
The streetscape improvement project aims to enhance the local identity and heritage value of the precinct by:
• Improving the aesthetics of the precinct
• Strengthening the existing character of the area
• Upgrading pedestrian access, facilities, and safety
• Upholding the heritage value of the art deco theme.
The project will occur in 2 stages:
Intersection of Walcott Street and Beaufort Street
1. Works will commence at the intersection bounded by Beaucott Lane, Astor Lane, Walcott Street and the City's car parks located at 679 & 680 Beaufort Street. This will include:
• Installing uniform paving along Beaufort Street up to the car parks
• Removal of the palm trees on the Beaufort Street median
• Provision of an automated self-cleaning toilet for the public car parks
• Road resurfacing of Beaufort Street and the 2 car parks
• Additional landscaping and trees within the car parks
• New custom-designed street furniture (seating, litter bins, bike racks and bollards) including informal seating along Beaufort Street
• Improved lighting within the car parks.
Beaufort Street from car parks up to Queen’s Crescent
2. Works will take place from the City's car park to Queen's Crescent. A budget decision for this phase is planned for 2011/12.
