WORKS to revamp Station Street Mall are expected to start within weeks.
The $1.63 million project will include a new decking area, trees, seating, and provisions for outdoor dining throughout the area.
The mayor Michael O’Reilly said the project would “revitalise the area for local traders and visitors.”
“The Station Street Mall improvements will contribute to the transformation of the Frankston Station Precinct into a safer, more modern place of business and activity. Station Street Mall is set to become a destination to stop and unwind, rather than pass through, with improvements to create a great space for all to enjoy,” he said.
“We’ve worked closely with the affected businesses, the community and other stakeholders to ensure we make the most of this project. The shops will remain open during the works. Some are taking the opportunity to also complete their own renovations and I encourage you to support these businesses during the project.”
The project will start in mid-June and are projected to take around five months. It is funded by $1.17 million of ratepayer funding allocated by council, $360,000 from the state government and $100,000 from Vicinity.
