Monaro Street upgrade concept designs open for comment

Concept design of the Monaro Street upgrade

The redevelopment of Monaro Street is the third stage in Council’s Queanbeyan CBD Spatial Master Plan and aims to improve the amenity of the street for residents, visitors and local businesses.

“We are seeking comments on concept designs for the upgrade of Monaro Street. The proposals include a new quieter road surface along with new paving, lighting, greenery and seating in the footpaths,” Mayor Tim Overall said.

“This is a major project and an important step in the ongoing revitalisation of the Queanbeyan CBD.”

“Vital upgrades will be made to the infrastructure under the road while the footpaths will be widened to provide additional space and accessibility for pedestrians.”

Comments are open until Sunday 15 August.

A design for the length of Monaro Street between Lowe Street and Collett Street has been developed, however in this stage construction will only take place between Lowe Street and Crawford Street.

This project has been supported by $10m through the NSW Government’s $170m Drought Stimulus Package.

This project is separate to the Monaro Lanes project that seeks to revitalise two laneways that connect to Monaro Street. We are also seeking comment on the Monaro Lanes project on our Your Voice page.
