A revitalisation of Newman's Town Centre continues with the Construction of the new town square
The square has been beautifully designed to enhance Newman’s liveability and will feature landscaping, decorative shade structures, public art installation and an entertainment area, which will feature a stage for live performances and a huge media screen.
In addition to the improved lifestyle amenities the new town square will provide local and visiting businesses access to pop-up retail and office spaces in the new ‘business incubator’ facility that is a critical part of the project’s design to support and encourage Newman’s economic growth.
Royalties for Regions under the State Government’s Pilbara Cities initiative is funding the $40mil revitalisation project and it's being delivered by LandCorp in partnership with the Shire of East Pilbara.
LandCorp and the Shire of East Pilbara have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which details how both organisations will maximise the utilisation of the new facilities and manage the cost and maintenance of the new town centre.
The town square revamp builds on works already completed, including the development of a new east/west entry into the heart of the town, realignment of roads, upgraded power and wastewater services, quality landscaping, new car parks and an improved pedestrian and bike network
