Project Updates

Glenorchy’s CBD

Glenorchy City Council has commenced an exciting project to transform the Glenorchy central business district (CBD). The main focus of this project is the section of Main Road between Terry Street and Barry Street.


A design concept of GCC Main Road is available here (PDF). A 3D animation video is available for viewing here (external link).


Project Updates


STAGE 3 (Main Road - Terry St to Barry St) - This final, main stage of works is broken up into three separate stages, across three financial years:

  • Stage 3A - Terry St to Tolosa St (February 2019 to June 2019);
  • Stage 3B - Tolosa St to Regina St (July 2019 to June 2020);
  • Stage 3C - Regina St to Barry St (July 2020 to June 2021).


Project Update June 2019

STAGE 3A is well underway and nearing completion. The first section of works for this stage was the upgrade of the forecourt area in front of Chambers, which included:

  • New kerb and crosswalk ramps;
  • Redesigned garden beds to accommodate the existing trees;
  • New pre-cast seating blocks with wooden seat inserts, the inclusion of power outlets, USB charging ports as well as some recessed lighting within the seats;
  • New paving for the entire area;
  • The addition of another bike-rack;
  • The addition of a new access parking bay; and
  • Upgraded lighting with new, efficient LED globes.


The remaining section of works on the northern side of Main Rd from the southern entrance of Northgate along and around the corner into Peltro St., will include: 

  • New kerb and crosswalk ramps;
  • New garden bed and seating outside The Paddy Wagon Hotel;
  • The addition of a new access parking bay;
  • New paving for the entire area;
  • Tie-in of the Peltro St cycle link into the new footpath; and
  • Upgraded lighting with new, efficient LED globes.


Previous Updates:

Stage 1 - (Peltro St Cycle Link) - is now complete and will tie into the northern side of Stage 3A once complete.

Stage 2 - (O'Brien's Bridge to Barry St) - is also complete. The new footpath/paving design in this section carries over into all other sections of work creating a seamless design pattern for the entire CBD project area.

As the project continues to progress, further updates will be placed on Council's website, Facebook page, and the Glenorchy Gazette.
