The northern entrance to Cooleman Court Shopping Centre in Weston is set for a makeover, with the current concrete ramp entry to be replaced by an enclosed, weather-proofed travellator.
According to a development application lodged by owner Mirvac, the new, accessible entry way on Mahony Court will provide a more functional and attractive façade to the main pedestrian and car parking area of Cooleman Court.
The existing ramp and balustrade will be demolished and a travellator and lift installed.
The entry way will be enclosed, with glass windows and glazed automated doors installed to weather-proof it.
New signage has also been proposed for the northern façade, as well as new façade treatments and textures to improve presentation and visual interest.
A modernised entrance should also make life easier for customers battling with shopping trolleys and the elements on the sloped entrance, as well as people with disabilities.
Cooleman Court is part of the Weston Group Centre, which serves Weston Creek and the Molonglo Valley.
