Final stage of Yeppoon foreshore design released

THE final design outcomes of Stage 5 of the Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre Revitalisation Project have been released this week, as works across several key projects within the master-plan continue to take shape.

The major development of regional significance funded by Federal, State and Local Government aims to revitalise existing public spaces and create tourism, recreation and commercial land uses within the Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre precinct.

Mayor Bill Ludwig said this final design for Stage 5 of the project will include major elements such as the Lagoon Precinct, the Beach Amphitheatre Stage Roof, Main Foreshore and Normanby Street Placemaking initiatives, a Skate Park upgrade, new play equipment in Appleton Park and general road network and pedestrian connectivity outcomes.

"This extensive transformation of the Yeppoon foreshore and Town Centre would not have been made possible without our Australian and Queensland Government funding partner's generous support,” Mayor Ludwig said.

Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga said the project, as part of the Queensland Government's commitment of $29 million over two years to the region, has and will continue to provide long-term benefits to the community and Central Queensland region.

"This final design for Stage 5 will build on the overall feel of the foreshore master-plan and ensure the natural beauty and local character of the area are not compromised, but actually celebrated,” Mrs Lauga said.

Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said the enabling infrastructure incorporated into the project would assist future development of transport, civic and technological infrastructure.

"This project is contributing towards an exceptional visitor experience that positions Yeppoon as a unique destination while also enhancing the lifestyle of resident's,” Ms Landry said.
