Eyre Highway Streetscape Project - Landscaping Plans
Council's Works Department have been working closely with Landskáp, an urban design & landscape architecture company, to develop concept plans for the landscaping component of the Eyre Highway Streetscape Project. The concept plans and treatment package have been approved by Council and are now available for viewing by the public.
Council's vision for the landscaping is:
- To create a 'green oasis’ that attracts people.
- A streetscape that celebrates the local character but also provides a new landscape that is distinct and has a more urban / regional feel than the rural surrounds.
- The streetscape should create visual interest as well as important greening around key nodes - to encourage people to stop and enjoy.
The plantings and treatments will create a low maintenance "arid smart" landscape that will provide colour and cover all year round. Irrigated lawn will be used in higher profile locations and an avenue of evergreen (and some deciduous) trees created. Plantings within the basins will be used to break up the larger hardscape areas. Boulders and rocks are to be installed to protect verges from wayward vehicle movement.
Long plots (3m long drawings) of the plans which provide the design in a larger sequence are available to view at the Wudinna & Districts Telecentre.
Council anticipates that works will commence in early 2021 and will take approximately 12 weeks to complete.
