The Palmwoods Streetscape Project will deliver the first stage of the Palmwoods Public Domain Master Plan that was endorsed by council at its November 2014 Ordinary Meeting. The Palmwoods Master Plan was accepted by 98% of community members who provided feedback during the master planning phase.
The Palmwoods Streetscape Project will include construction of a new town square in the heart of Palmwoods.
The town square will create a green community space for people to gather in the heart of Palmwoods, adjacent to the Memorial Hall.
It will provide a central meeting point for festivals and community celebrations - with seating, shade and outdoor dining opportunities - and will improve pedestrian links through the town, connecting the three shopping precincts on Margaret, Main and Little Main Streets
Streetscape works will be undertaken on Main Street and Hill Street with these areas connected by an all access timber boardwalk in a grove of mature Piccabeen palms, named the Piccabeen Walk after the tree that Palmwoods takes its name from.
Other key features of this area will include construction of retaining walls, relocation of services, road widening in Main Street and construction of a new ramped access from Main Street up to Little Hill Street. This project aims to maximise the amount of level space available for community use while complimenting the Palmwoods town character.
Construction of the Palmwoods Streetscape Project is in progress. The project represents the first stage of the Palmwoods Public Domain Master Plan.
Construction will take place from May through to December 2017 (weather and site conditions permitting).
Temporary changes to traffic conditions
From Tuesday 2 May to Tuesday 30 May there will be some changes to traffic movements. Main Street will be temporarily converted to one-way traffic heading south from Margaret Street.
This will facilitate the ongoing road widening and prepare for the construction of the new town square.
Where to from here
After the road widening work is completed on Main Street, construction of the new Town Square will start.
Town Square construction is expected to take place from June to December 2017 (weather permitting).
The Palmwoods Streetscape project will include work in the following locations:
- Main Street, Little Main Street and Hill Street
- The area to the south of the Palmwoods Memorial Hall
