It’s not often the businesses operating out of Campbelltown’s main street receive positive news.

But they will be happy to hear that a series of improvement works planned for Queen Street over the coming months will refresh pavements and street furniture to boost the public amenity of a long section of the main street.

Approximately 700 square metres of pavement will be replaced along Queen Street between Browne Street and Bradbury Avenue as part of the project.

Browne Street runs off Queen Street at Mawson park, while Bradbury Avenue is south of there, just past Campbelltown Mall.

“The replacement of pavement at key locations along the street was identified in a recent review in order to improve accessibility for people and businesses,” says Campbelltown Mayor George Greiss.

“These works will also refresh the street furniture which has been well used by people who are looking for a place to eat over lunch or catch up with friends,” he said.

The works will include pavement remediation, which will focus on repairing cracks, potholes and uneven surfaces at identified locations along Queen Street, enhancing the accessibility of the area.

Refreshment of furniture installations and replacement of timber decking with new artificial grass and shade is also part of the works.

The installation of five tree pits with weeping lilly pilly trees completes the works planned.

The first stage will take place between Browne Street and Cordeaux Street from today, (October 19).

The project will be complete by early 2024.

Some night works will take place throughout the construction period.

This project is funded by the Australian Government through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program and Council.

  1. Before moving to Hobart a few years ago, I lived in Campbelltown East for forty years and, during that time, pre-Macarthur Square, what was once a well frequented main street became drab and unloved.
    Queen Street has long needed attention, even going back years, so it is good to read of the changes coming to brighten up the area and maybe attract more passers-by to the cafes and shops.
    I hope the vandals won’t try to spoil it with graffiti and vandalism etc. Good luck!
