Tonkin Consulting was engaged to provide engineering design for the new streetscape and stakeholder consultation with stakeholders including planners and council. Major considerations for the development of the project included the establishment of optimum road/footpath levels, particularly to ensure that shopfronts were safe from heavy rain events. Traffic management, as well as phone, water and gas services being a consideration.

The project delivered a new streetscape with wide footpaths creating a more pedestrian-friendly area. The projects innovative design won three awards for its contribution to the community and excellence in design.
