Boyd park

09 Oct 2018

Demolition of the 1970s classroom block behind the Boyd Community Hub will start this month after the City of Melbourne awarded the contract to civil construction company Multipro Civil Pty Ltd.

Councillors unanimously voted to award the $2.5 million+GST contract to Multipro following a tender process. The company, which Deputy Lord Mayor Arron Wood rated as the “best value tenderer,” will be responsible for delivering the park behind Boyd that the community has long been waiting for.

Lord Mayor Sally Capp told Southbank Local News the council was pleased to be getting on with delivering the park.

“I’m delighted that construction of Boyd Park will commence this spring, following a tender being issued for the civil and landscaping works,” Cr Capp said.

“Delivery of this open space is incredibly important because the population of Southbank is expected to grow by more than 50 per cent in the next 20 years. Providing more parks as density increases is essential for a liveable city.”

A council spokesperson told Southbank Local News that the tender process for the commercial development site at Boyd, which is touted for a mixture of community facilities, retail, affordable housing and apartments, was still being worked through.
