REDEVELOPMENT of Echuca’s old kiosk is 90 per cent complete. The project is part of stage one of the multi-million dollar riverfront project with the end result expected to improve acceptability and the visual appearance of the area. Meanwhile, tender for stage two of the project is expected to be announced soon. By early next year Echuca is expected to have a new riverfront - an area to enjoy the natural surroundings of the river, while supporting access to commercial houseboats and paddlesteamers, and providing universal access across the riverfront and precinct. Once the kiosk is built the building will continue to be fenced and when stage two works start, the entire site will be fenced, so the kiosk itself won’t be operational until the whole project is completed. But council can start the leasing process during stage two works so that the site is opened, the the kiosk will be ready for operations. The $5 million project has been jointly funded with the Federal Government contributing $2.6 million, Victorian Government $1.3 million and council $1 million. Council said commercial boat operators would continue to operate from the site until stage two construction starts with alternate mooring locations agreed to ‘‘support all boat business operations during the works’’.
