A lively pedestrian and cycle friendly place
An old service road is being transformed into a lively pedestrian and cycle friendly place with greenspace, colourful surface treatments, sculptural play and tropical planting. The project’s centrepiece is a public pavilion, constructed using old hardwood salvaged from a demolished wharf shed. Remnant pylons protruding from the river bed will be illuminated to celebrate the site’s wharf history. The project has an intended 5-10 year life span, after which time it is anticipated that major redevelopment of adjacent sites would give rise to the sort of long term public realm improvements envisaged in the Mackay Waterfront PDA Master Plan.
