Mitta Mitta Streetscape
About the project
Stage 1 one of this project has recently received funding through Regional Roads Victoria and includes improvement to safety, functionality and aesthetics of Mitta Mitta’s streets, parking and footpaths to help manage increasing traffic.
The streetscape project intends to deliver:
- New kerb, safe pedestrian crossings and carparking at the Omeo Highway and La Fontaine Street intersection
- Pedestrian and cyclist footpaths through the town centre and links to nearby reserves
- Long vehicle carparking
We have recently applied for further funding to support Stage 2 which includes:
- A shared pedestrian and cycling bridge across the Mitta Mitta River to connect the recreation reserve to the future mountain bike park
- Refurbishment of the toilet block at Paddy’s Reserve
Project Update - May 2022
We’ve been working closely with the Mitta Mitta community in the development of plans to deliver a more functional and safer Mitta Mitta town centre.
Through discussions with stakeholders and business owners, via our survey and 'Meet the Project Manager' sessions clear feedback was received on the practicality and useability of the proposed parking solutions.
We have incorporated this feedback into the final plans with the proposed long vehicle parking at Paddy's Reserve being replaced with regular vehicle parking and the proposed parking in front of the pub being altered to include more vehicles. We are continuing to work with other land owners to identify alternative sites for long vehicle parking.
Changes will be incorporated into the works for Stage One and we will keep the community updated on when works will commence.
During this process there was significant interest in the proposed inclusions for Stage Two of this project. Consultation in relation to this stage of the project will be scheduled shortly.
