The Mount Beauty Airport Upgrade project is at the draft concept design stage, and Alpine Shire Council is holding a webinar next week to share the project’s progress.

Project update

Council’s project team will host a webinar on Wednesday, 16 September to discuss plans for the upgrade, take feedback on the draft concept design and answer any questions.

Director Assets Will Jeremy said the upgrade is an important step towards shoring up long-term emergency service access to the Kiewa Valley.

“In June, Council received an allocation of up to $1.55 million from the Federal Government’s Regional Airports Program for the airport upgrade,” he said.

“We have since been refining the concept design and are now seeking community feedback before moving forward with the project. 

“Once we have the concept design agreed by all our stakeholders, the next step in the project is developing the detailed design. 

“This project will effectively future-proof access for emergency services, improving the safety of surrounding communities and boosting access by air to the Kiewa Valley.”

Upgrades will support the essential firefighting efforts and allow for improved access for Air Ambulance Victoria fixed-wing aircraft.

The webinar will be held at 7pm on Wednesday, 16 September, via Zoom.
