Mate Street Beautification Project

We’re planning important infrastructure and streetscape improvements on Mate Street between Urana Road and Tarakan Avenue.

As part of ongoing works to revitalise the Lavington CBD, we’re planning important infrastructure and streetscape improvements on Mate Street between Urana Road and Tarakan Avenue.

As part of the project, the water mains under the footpath, which are approaching the end of their design life, will be replaced.

This work will present an opportunity to beautify the streetscape, completing a long term goal in-line with the Lavington CBD Masterplan.

The works will include:

  • Replacement of the water main on the eastern side of Mate Street from the Five Ways to Tarakan Avenue
  • Replacement of the water main on the western side from Gulpha Street to the Five Ways
  • Installation of a new water main on Union Road linking Mate Street to Corella Street, eliminating two existing dead ends
  • Removal of existing footpath and replacement with new paths, including new kerb returns to the southern section
  • New detailed landscaping including garden beds bordered by bench seating to all corners, and;
  • Upgrading of all existing street furniture

The project is part of a wider strategy to improve the economic performance and attractiveness of the Lavington CBD to create jobs, improve safety and reduce business vacancy rates.

Improving the streetscape and visual appeal along Mate Street will encourage shoppers to support local business and help to attract new businesses to the area.

The works are included in the current four year delivery program and were placed on public exhibition prior to their endorsement by Council.

Extensive community consultation has been undertaken with businesses directly affected advised of the upcoming works.

Consultation will continue throughout the construction process to minimise the impact on businesses and ensure everyone affected by the work is kept up to date on progress.

The works will be carried out by Excell Gray Bruni, with a target completion date of early November 2020.
