Collins St lights up

The beautification of the entrance to Kiama on Collins St has culminated with the turning on of the night lights in time for the holiday season.

The $23,000 project of improvements to the precinct was jointly funded by Kiama Council and the Kiama and District Business Chamber. Apart from the 50 metres of fairy lights, new garden beds and plants have been installed.

Council will evaluate the success of the Collins Street upgrades before considering similar work along Terralong Street.

“Once the lighting is installed, we want to see the impact it makes to the business along Collins Street, before deciding on the next stage,” says Gino Belsito, Director Engineering & Works.
