Work will include improvements to the intersection of Imlay Street and Albert Terrace, construction of a shared path on the eastern side of Albert Terrace, revitalised public space on the south east side of the Albert Terrace and Museum Street intersection, and the renewal and upgrade of existing infrastructure including pavements and kerbs.

The project will begin soon after the busy school holiday period has ended and is estimated to take about six months to complete, depending on the weather.
Work will be undertaken in stages to reduce the inconvenience for road users, residents and businesses. Council will keep the community informed about each stage of the project and the impact on traffic as it unfolds.
