Stage Two of the Margaret River Makeover is progressing well with kerbing and formwork for new footpaths due for construction from the Tunbridge Street intersection heading up hill.

In preparation, contractors will be removing trees that are in poor health or causing extensive damage to the kerbing, identified by an independent arborist as part of the project design.

The majority of established trees will remain a prominent feature of the revamped street, with additional trees planted during final landscaping works.

Once the project is complete, the total number of trees will increase from 78 to 92 along this stretch of town.

Shire Chief Executive Officer, Stephanie Addison Brown said greening up the town centre was a central part of the Main Street Makeover.

“The iconic trees along our Main Street are one of the most loved features of our town centre providing shade, natural beauty and habitat for bird life,” she said.

“Final landscaping plans include a range of native plants to go in along the new median strips and surrounding garden beds.

“Established trees in 500L and 200L pot sizes will be planted when the final landscaping goes in.

“The new Festival Precinct on Fearn Av will have 12 new trees planted, providing lovely shade for the new seating areas,” she said.
