Wangaratta Railway Precinct
The Wangaratta Railway Precinct has undergone substantial upgrades to the public realm to improve connectivity for residents and create an improved gateway for those arriving into Wangaratta on train or coach.
The railway precinct provides an important gateway into Wangaratta - particularly for those arriving into the township via train or coach. The brief required the reinvigoration of the two main axes routes that link the railway station precinct to the CBD - through the provision of new landscaping, wider pathways, dedicated bike paths, pedestrian crossings and improved wayfinding and signage.
Key to the success of the design was a substantial increase in indigenous trees and landscaping to provide shady relief from the regions warm climate.
