In 2022, the Council will begin to transform the main street of Kingston, Channel Hwy, into an attractive and inviting destination, improving the retail and commercial experiences for residents and visitors.
The main road upgrade will centre around creating greener areas, widening footpaths for pedestrians and outdoor dining, slowing traffic down, improving cycling access and supporting the use of public transport with appealing infrastructure.
Through the Kingston Place Strategy, the community overwhelmingly indicated the need to enhance the look and feel of Kingston. Pointing to the lack of green spaces, connected walkways and a CBD which was focused on the movement of cars, rather than pedestrians.
By transforming Kingston’s physical environment, the Council aims to create an urban environment that is important to residents and visitors for social, cultural and economic activities.
