Rejuvenation for Springwood Town Centre
Improvements include the upgrading of three pedestrian crossings to Australian standards (on Macquarie Road, between Raymond Rd and Rest Park), making it easier and safer for pedestrians to access local businesses.
New street plantings including more crepe myrtle trees and new seating, will further revitalise Macquarie Road. In addition, parking spaces will be defined by markings, making it easier to park.
Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill: “These upgrades will provide significant benefits for the Springwood community, including those living with disability, and the people who care for them.
“In addition, the thriving Springwood town centre will be refreshed, making it more appealing to both locals and visitors.”
Works are due to start in October, and will take up to 12 weeks to complete, depending on weather. Businesses will not need to close while the upgrade is completed and Macquarie Road will remain open for pedestrians to visit their favourite shops and cafes.
Parts of the road may close temporarily, but one lane will remain open to traffic. For commuters and travellers, access to public transport, including trains, buses and taxis, will remain open.
These works are in line with the Springwood Town Centre Masterplan, and are funded from the Western Parkland City Liveability Program.
