QEII Square Master Plan

Background

In early 2015, AlburyCity adopted the QEII Square Master Plan, a long-term vision to create a contemporary, vibrant and exciting inner-city space for a growing and future Albury.

The master plan works are valued at $1.8M and it's proposed they be implemented over four stages with Stage 1 commencing in 2015-2016.

This first stage will involve resurfacing the concourse and paving, improving lighting and installing electrical conduits as well as the installation of public art commissions, artisan seating, new bins, bollards and signage.

The second stage, proposed for 2017-2018 incorporates new landscaping, seating and pathways. With the final stage in 2019-2020 to include the commission of a new Bus shelter and additional trees and seating. 

The master plan also proposes planting an additional 21 mature trees ranging from three metres to five metres in height over the next six years.
