Benefits to the community

The aim of this work is to progress the goals of the Wonthaggi Unlocked and Wonthaggi Activity Centre Plan through street beautification works.

What to expect

  • Wrapping of one Norfolk Pine tree with firefly outdoor fairy lights. The tree is located near the corner of McBride Avenue and Watt Street.
  • Electrical work at heights, at the southern end of McBride Avenue.
  • All works will be conducted during normal business opening hours, apart from a night test which is expected to occur on the 23 July at 6pm, via the use of a generator.
  • Appropriate traffic and pedestrian control measures will be implemented around the Norfolk Pine. This will impact on some carparking spaces (corner of Watt Street and McBride Avenue) not being available during these works.
