WORK at Station Square is well and truly under way as the CHORD improvements continue in Oban town centre.
The work, which is phase two of the Oban Bay Project, stretches from Stafford Street to George Street, Queen’s Park Place and Station Square. Having started on January 4, the aim of the council is to have it finished by the summer.
The design for Station Square provides a shared surface, flexible space for occasional events; a widened seaside footway; an improved shelter for bus passengers; flexible seating; ornamental planting; LED lighting similar to Stafford Street; like-for-like provision for taxis and a new plinth for the clock tower.
George Street and Queen’s Park Place will see bespoke seating areas, including planting and decorative lighting; an improved footway on the seafront; refurbished railings and replacement lighting along the sea wall.
Staff from The Oban Times were out filming during week one.
