Seven Creeks Park upgrade improves accessibility

Friday, 24 May, 2019

Strathbogie Shire Council is currently undertaking improvement works at the Travellers Rest area in the Seven Creeks Park.

The current works are stage one of a two stage project to provide an all-abilities access ramp and walkway, linking the Seven Creeks Park water frontage with the Travellers Rest facility.

Stage 1 involves the construction of the walkway over the top of the existing concrete waterside promenade area, including new bench seating and the removal and replacement of the existing sub-standard decking material on the Travellers Rest viewing.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said these works are anticipated for completion by the end of June 2019.

“This upgrade will not only improve the amenity of such a well-used park and facility, but it will make it more accessible, especially for people with a disability,” Mayor McClaren explained.

Cr McClaren said Stage 2 of the upgrade is currently under consideration for inclusion in the 2019-20 Budget which will go before Council for adoption at a Special Council Meeting on Tuesday 25th June after hearing and consideration of submissions.

“Stage 2 involves the removal and replacement of the existing split-level access pathway with a single all-abilities access ramp which would comply with the current Australian Standard for all-ability access and mobility,” Mayor McClaren said.

“It is so important we continue to improve and refresh these types of facilities to ensure they continue to be utilised by both locals and visitors to our shire.”
