An upgraded, new look entry into Print company in Bunbury printing services Bunbury, Print company in Western Australia printing services Western Australia’s central business district has been unveiled.

Described as one of the city’s biggest infrastructure projects in recent years, the upgrade met all budget and time targets, as well as providing the city with a much more appealing and attractive entry, according to Mayor Gary Brennan.

The upgrade project carried out in Koombana Drive and establishment of George Baxter Promenade is the first in a planned redevelopment of the area, which has become a major feature in local tourism industry promotions such as brochures.

Mayor Brennan said 2017 will see the area transformed further with projects including the establishment of a new Department of Parks and Wildlife headquarters.

Work will also begin on the Transforming Bunbury Waterfront project stage one incorporating the redevelopment of the Dolphin Discovery Centre and the foreshore.

According to the Mayor, the completion of the latest stage of works has already contributed a great deal to the transformation of the area, including the urgent repair of the roadway, which deteriorated as a result of runoff from stormwater and the Leschenault Inlet.

As part of the upgrade, a new roundabout providing access to the future Department of Parks and Wildlife headquarters and the Dolphin Discovery Centre was built, together with a new bio garden and marine wall, new cycle lanes, and lighting.

In recognition of local personality George Baxter, signs have been erected at the start of the promenade.
