Library to be located on High St during redevelopment

Friday, June 21, 2019.


It's here - the city's new-look High St will be open to traffic this weekend.

"You will be able to drive down and park, everything will be back to the new normal," Wodonga Council's Manager of Infrastructure and Projects Theo Panagopoulos said.

"You'll have a lovely street, so I'm really looking forward to this weekend."

Here's some quick facts about our new street.

Did you know our new street is greener?

We have added an additional 100 trees to the street, bringing the total to 126.

In addition, each planter box has shrubs to make it nicer for people visiting the area and it's all connected to our central irrigation system so we can be smarter with our water usage.

Our new street has been improved from the ground up.

This means we have renewed all water main pipes in the street, upgraded our underground drainage system, and we have also angled our parking bays so the water flows directly to the spoon drain.

Our new street is accessible.

Flat surfaces and kerbing make it easier for walkers, prams and wheelchairs.

There are also parallel disabled parking bays to make access to the footpath easier and tactile markers help people who are vision impaired.

Landscapers will continue, mainly in the Woodland Grove area, but that won’t stop vehicles using and parking on the street.
