Landscaping work at Byron Visitor Centre underway
The exterior of the Byron Visitor Information Center (VIC) is getting a thorough freshening up with workers moving in this week to undertake a major $ 250,000 landscaping project.
The upgrading of the area is an extension of the work carried out in recent years in the neighboring railway park.
“Over the past two years the council has gone to great lengths to make the Railway Park area more welcoming and user-friendly, and this project at the VIC will complete the picture,” said Council Director Infrastructure Phil Holloway.
The old bus stop was removed because the new transit center was opened on Butler Street and the modernization of the Rails parking lot has been completed.
The VIC will remain open for the duration of the work, but there may be noise and minor disturbances.
“We are also working hard to complete the landscaping work on the Byron Railroad Corridor with the same contractors who worked on the Railway Park and are also working on the Railroad Corridor and VIC projects,” said Holloway.
Work on the VIC includes new gardens, seating, bike racks and footpaths.
