Precinct connects Moe community

The heart of Moe has been given a new lease of life and an old barrier between north and south Moe removed, following the opening of stage one of the Moe Rail Precinct Revitalisation Project.

Speaking in Moe on Monday, Regional Development Minister Fiona Nash said the old railway station yards that used to divide the central business district had been transformed into an inviting gateway between the two.

“The new library, cafe , council area and plaza are expected to bring 90,000 people into Moe’s CBD each year,” Ms Nash said.

“We expect this renewal in the heart of the CBD to spread as more visitors give local business the confidence to invest.”

Latrobe City acting chief executive Sarah Cumming said council contributed $3 million towards the development of the Moe Rail Precinct project.

“It is a community facility designed to provide civic services including access to the library and learning, maternal and child health, a community kitchen, a cafe  and dining area, public meeting rooms and an inspiring roof garden,” Ms Cumming said.
