Green Link project to transform Caboolture CBD

March 26, 2018 by  

The heart of Caboolture CBD is to be transformed into a public entertainment and recreation space.

Work began recently on the Green Link project, which is being undertaken by Moreton Bay Council at a cost of $290,000.

Councillor Adam Hain said the creation of the Green Link will be undertaken by levelling and then turfing a site between Armstrong Way and James Street.

He said the area will be transformed from being a construction compound to providing new open space complete with sandstone seating, drainage improvements, concrete pathways and light conduits. He added “urban beautification” would also be a big part of the project, with tall trees set to be planted to provide plenty of shade.

The councillor said the project will provide many benefits, including the beautification of the CBD, enhanced pedestrian movements as well as increased opportunities for pop-up activations and events in the heart of the city.

The Green Link project is also expected to generate renewed business investment in Caboolture, with future poster and banner printing likely to advertise a host of activations and events, including the popular Eat Street activities.

By creating additional activities through initiatives such as the Green Link project, Cr. Hain believes the number of `For Lease’ signs in King Street will be reduced and more people will be attracted to the CBD.
