When and How

The construction phase of the City Centre Renewal will begin with Stage I in February 2017.

This work will bring to life the vision for Liebig Street developed by the Warrnambool community at public workshops held in 2014.

Stage I includes the central and northern blocks of Liebig Street between Koroit Street and Raglan Parade.

Work on Stage I will be completed by October 2017.

Stage II will see the renewal of Liebig Street between Koroit and Timor streets and Koroit Street between Liebig and Kepler streets.

Work on Stage II will begin in February 2018 and be completed in October 2018.

The work will be sequenced in a way that will ensure that customers and traders have access to businesses during business operating hours.

In March 2016 Council formally adopted the following four principles to guide the construction of the city centre:

  • Maintain regular communications with businesses and the community throughout the project;
  • Maintain access to businesses for pedestrians during business hours;
  • Maintain, as far as practicable, traffic flow for vehicles through the construction site during business hours; and,
  • Maximise, as far as practicable, customer parking and designated loading zones for businesses during business hours.
