SMEC is providing design services for Stage 1A of the project. As Principal Consultant, SMEC is coordinating the design and providing all the infrastructure including environment and engineering.
“The first stage of the Promenade will complete missing links in the pathway between the museum and the George Roberts Bridge, and provide a continuous link from the Ferry Terminal and the Strand all the way into the CBD. We are off to a good start by having a design team that includes extensive experience and local knowledge on major public infrastructure projects, particularly here in Townsville,” Infrastructure Committee chairman Cr Trevor Roberts said.
This significant urban renewal project will transform Townsville's inner-city into a world-class lifestyle precinct, providing the first step in the revitalisation of the waterfront and inner-city areas.
The design will include new paths and access ramps, boardwalks and platforms over the water, lighting and signage, reopening of the access under George Roberts Bridge, CCTV coverage, resurfacing and extension to existing walkways, and upgrading existing marine structures.
