The Exmouth community will today celebrate its new and revitalised foreshore and town centre, made possible by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman today officially opened the $6.84 Million project, which includes upgrades to the town beach and undergrounding of power in the central business district.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The revitalisation and redevelopment of the Exmouth town centre and foreshore will provide the community with an enhanced quality of life, and bring the wider region opportunities for increased economic development.” Mr. Redman said.

“Exmouth is set to become a dynamic and diverse region and projects such as this assist in attracting visitors and retaining residents, and building strong and vibrant regional communities.”

“Royalties for Regions is transforming regional Western Australia and ensuring local communities have access to a range of modern and sustainable facilities.”

Key project works include the reconstruction of Thew Street, road realignments to improve traffic flow, increased town parking, redevelopment of Federation Park and an enhanced town beach and marina bridge area to cater for a growing number of visitors.

The revitalisation project complements other Royalties for Regions funded projects in Exmouth such as the skate park, recreation centre and Learmonth airport.

Since its inception, Royalties for Regions has enabled Exmouth to be transformed with 33 initiatives funded through the Gascoyne Revitalisation Plan initiative, Country Local Government Fund and Gascoyne Regional Grants Scheme.

The Royalties for Regions Gascoyne Revitalisation Plan initiative will see funding of $150 Million provided to major infrastructure and community priority projects in the Gascoyne region to 2016-17.
