In about 5 months time, Wangaratta will wake up to a new look link between the CBD and King George Gardens when work gets underway next week.

Spokesperson for council, Steven Burke says it is designed to be pedestrian friendly.

"Council's going to create a pedestrian friendly shaded streetscape linking King George Gardens with Wangaratta CBD. The project will involve the installation of 2 pedestrian crossings between the Co Store and King George Gardens, new street lighting to improve pedestrian safety and the replacement of angle parking with parallel parking".

"The CBD master plan really looks at the entire CBD and how it can be improved for visitors and for residents".

"There will be some short term inconvenience for motorists as the works take place along Ovens street, but the end result will be well worth it".

The overall project will come at a cost of just under $1.5 million and should be complete around July.
