Mulwala Foreshore Master Plan’s implementation at APEX Park, which includes the water slide area, is underway.
Pool Avenue, between Erne and Inglis Streets, is undergoing widening and reconstruction for a one-way avenue from the south.
Drainage works and angle parking, on the foreshore side of Pool Avenue, are also being undertaken, along with removal of the huge tree.
Car parking is also to be allowed for in Inglis Street which runs alongside APEX Park.
“It’s fantastic we’ve got a master plan that we’re working to, after consultation with the community,” Mulwala-based Federation Council’s Local Representative Committee member, Daryl Davey, told the Yarrawonga Chronicle.
“It was released the first time for public comment and the community put their views forward. The master plan was changed accordingly and adopted.
“It’s gratifying to see that we’re sticking to the adopted plan and as the APEX Park is one of the major drawcards in Mulwala with the waterslide, boating, skiing and fishing, it’s great this centrepiece is being given new life for everyone to enjoy.
“It’s going to be money well spent.”
Being undertaken by contractors Walsh of Wodonga in accordance with Federation Council design, the project is expected to be completed in May. The Mulwala Foreshore Master Plan is a $10 million project over 10 years.
