Russell St refresh progresses

Toowoomba Regional Council has called for public responses on their Russell Street refresh project. Russell Street is a popular destination in Toowoomba and is a major component to the City Centre Master Plan.

“It’s great to see an injection of creativity into revitalising Russell Street.

“Especially since this is a component of the City Centre master plan, which will play an important role in attracting business and people to Toowoomba,” Toowoomba Branch President Stephen Bowers said.

“We participated in the consultation workshops supporting the proposal."

In June 2017 the council, together with Russell Street businesses, and the wider Toowoomba community, drafted a revitalisation plan for the street calling for upgrades to footpaths, landscaping, street furniture, lighting, public artwork.

The public consultation period closed on October 13. The final streetscape plan will be presented at the end of 2017.
