Council appreciates your patience while works are underway.

 

James Street and Matthew Terrace is undergoing  a $2 million upgrade for  in the Caboolture CBD.

 

This new major upgrade would see new streetscapes, crossings and road surfacing along both roads to not only improve visual amenity, connectivity and safety, but also generate new opportunities for small business, tourism and public art in the area.

As part of the upgrade, council will widen and resurface the existing footpath on James Street to give local cafes and restaurants the opportunity to generate on-street dining options for their customers, while crews will also construct a new 2m-wide footpath along Matthew Terrace, which will connect to the planned Caboolture to Wamuran rail trail.

 

A number of new seats and street furniture will be installed along both roads, including an elevated seating node around the mature tree on Matthew Terrace, and there will be dedicated areas for potential public art in the future.

 

Construction is expected to be complete by October, weather permitting, in time for the inaugural Generate festival.
