Town embarks on makeover

DONNYBROOK will undergo a makeover to become more tourism friendly.

While logging trucks will still rumble throught the town, trees will be planted, sidewalks widened and parking re-assessed.

The work is the culmination of more than four years of planning and should be completed by the end of the year.

Local engineer Steve Disley will coordinate the $2.5 million project.

He is also project manager for the Water Corporation’s $3 million underground infill sewerage work program which is due to be completed in June.

The projects have been allocated to public works contractor Ertech.

Together, the projects could employ up to sixty people – a much need boost for the town.

Donnybrook Chamber of Commerce president Craig Clark said the chamber supported the redevelopment program.

“What we are trying to create is a federation scheme, a town square and a lot of landscaping,” Mr Clark said.

“A bypass plan is scaring everyone. That won’t happen for at least ten years.”

Mr Disley said work would start within the next few weeks – most likely on the Reserve Street intersection and the northern car park.
