Korumburra Streetscape

The Korumburra Streetscape Project is a multi-stage project that aims to revitalise the Korumburra CBD. It includes redevelopment of parts of Little Commercial Street, Commercial Street and "Upper Commercial Street" in the railway land. The project aims to deliver on elements identified in the Korumburra Town Framework and Streetscape master-planning works completed in 2016.

Funding of $5 million has been approved through the Victorian Government's Community Infrastructure Loans Scheme for project components in the Little Commercial Street Precinct and Commercial Street.

Progress Report - April 2022

Little Commercial Street Works Commenced

Streetscape works in Little Commercial Street in Korumburra has started after the contract was approved to award at the Council Meeting on 24 November 2021.

The streetscape works will complement the Korumburra Community Hub — which is currently under construction — and improve the visual appeal and functionality of Little Commercial Street, between Bridge Street and Radovick Street.

The Little Commercial Street works are being completed by ACE Earthmoving, based in Mirboo North, who have experience completing similar projects in regional Victoria. The contract value is $1,821,025 and will be funded via the Victorian Government's Community Infrastructure Loans Scheme.

The streetscape and Community Hub works are running concurrently, which will mean that the Little Commercial Street area will be impacted by construction for most of 2022. However, the contractor will work closely with local businesses to try to minimise disruption as much as possible.

Works are being completed in a staged manner with each section to be completed sufficient to be made available for public use before moving on to the next, in order to maximise parking and accessibility throughout the project.

Construction work will move gradually through the site from Radovick Street through to Mine Road as progress is made.

Plans Progressing for Upper Commercial Street

The Upper Commercial Street works involve construction of a new carpark with at least 30 new parking spaces and associated infrastructure in the Korumburra Railway Station Precinct. The carpark will service the adjacent commercial area and users of the Great Southern Rail Trail. Designs are well progressed, with works anticipated to commence once planning and heritage approvals are secured in 2022.

Commercial Street Upgrades

Streetscape works in Commercial Street are planned to follow the Little Commercial Street and Upper Commercial Street works. The project will deliver elements identified in the 2016 streetscape master-planning process.
