One of the main entrances to the Campbelltown CBD is set for a makeover as part of a series of car park, footpath and landscaping works.
Works started in January to improve the condition of the Dumaresq Street car park as part of the upgrade project at the intersection of Dumaresq Street and Hurley Street.
The final stage of the carpark upgrade will soon start alongside beautification works to the footpath area adjacent to the car park.
The footpath will be transformed into a cool tree shaded landscape pedestrian zone.
The work there will include the planting of 12 new trees, including five spotted gums and seven water gums, along with vegetation facing Dumaresq and Hurley Street.
“The intersection of Dumaresq Street and Hurley Street is a major thoroughfare leading into the heart of our city’s CBD,” Mayor George Greiss said.
“These works will deliver practical improvements such as the new car park and footpath surfaces, but will also improve the aesthetic of this area and create a more welcoming entrance to the CBD precinct,” Cr Greiss said.
“Our CBD has been buzzing with activity during recent On Q events such as the Handmade and Homegrown markets and these works will add another great improvement to our public domain,” he said.
The $460,000 project is funded by the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program.
