Margaret River centre to be reinvigorated

HASSELL has been engaged by the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River to redesign the main streetscape of the Margaret River township in the heart of Western Australia's popular south-west wine region.

The HASSELL design seeks to reinvigorate the public realm through the expansion of public space, widening pavements to reduce the impact of vehicles and creating opportunities for al fresco dining, markets and festival activities.

New street furniture, lighting, surface treatments and interpretive elements, referencing the rich cultural and natural vernacular of the region, will enhance this vibrant social centre for residents and visitors.

Margaret River Main Street is a 'SuperTowns' project funded by the Government of Western Australia's 'Royalties for Regions' initiative. 'SuperTowns' seeks to target sustainable regional economic development to stimulate diverse employment and investment opportunities, assist in managing projected population expansion in key regional towns, and plan and invest in development and growth within an integrated strategic planning and implementation framework.
