Work resumed last week on a revitalisation of the Tweed Heads commercial hub, following the conclusion of the Council-supported Cooly Rocks On festival which attracted massive crowds.The $1.6 million project was scheduled to avoid clashing with the annual rock and roll festival, which attracted record crowds this year.
Council crews have resumed work with the reconstruction of loading dock driveways to the adjacent Tweed Centro and Woolworths shopping centres, as well as realigning and landscaping the median strip so delivery trucks can more easily access the loading bays. That work is expected to be finished in early July, before the road surface on the eastern section of Bay Street is strengthened and resealed.
In mid July, construction works will move to the western section of Bay Street, where road marking has begun in preparation for the overhaul to create a more functional and attractive streetscape. Work so far at the eastern end has included creating additional car parking, improved drainage and realigning the cycleway path linking to Jack Evans Boat Harbour.
