The Central Geelong Accessibility Improvements Project will see key locations in central Geelong are become more accessible for people with disabilities and mobility issues.
The project will create more accessible footpaths and facilities in central Geelong, including at the waterfront.
These works follow an accessibility audit of central Geelong undertaken by the Revitalising Central Geelong Partnership that identified the barriers to easy access encountered by people with mobility limitations, particularly those relying on wheelchairs.
Improvements include: upgrading pedestrian access at the Moorabool Street entrance to Westfield Geelong and a further eight footpath improvement projects in the Eastern Beach area.
The accessibility improvements will significantly improve movement and access for people with disabilities as well as all path users in high activity areas in central Geelong.
The Central Geelong Accessibility Improvements Project works are due for completion by late-2019.
