FutureCity upgrade reaches next ‘steps’ 4 August

The next phase of the FutureCity upgrade to Lords Place and Byng Street continues with an upgrade of the steps and ramp in front of the entrance to the Orange Civic Theatre.

The area was demolished in two stages to ensure access to the theatre foyer is available during construction.

The pebble surface on the steps and ramp has been replaced by a concrete path way, in line with the look of the existing surface of the cultural precinct near the Orange Regional Museum.

The upgrade is designed to enhance the appearance of the area, create a safer, less slippery walkway and reduce the incline of the existing ramp. This has made access for people using wheelchairs and mobility scooters easier.

The upgrade was completed just in time for the first Eisteddfod event which began begins on August 2.

Work has now begun on the entrance to the Civic Centre (customer service).

People with mobility concerns should use either the Orange Civic Theatre box office entrance, or the entrance from the rear Council car park.
