CBD Improvements – Stage 2 construction to commence

Construction of the CBD Improvements – Stage 2 project in Queen Elizabeth Park and Collett St will commence in the week beginning 4 January 2016. This project will centre around Queen Elizabeth Park and Collett St and will see the area turned into an inviting and vibrant civic area (more info here).

Local construction firm, Bost Civil, has been contracted to undertake the construction and commence site preparation from 4 January. This will see a construction fence placed around the park area, meaning the carparking that currently exists within Queen Elizabeth Park will not be available.

The project is expected to be complete by late 2016 with the majority of work to be undertaken within Queen Elizabeth Park.
As part of the project, Collett St will be reconstructed. This is expected to take 12 weeks and will require traffic management in the area, however access to at least one of the Riverside Plaza driveways will be available at all times. A start time for the roadwork will be known towards the end of January.

During construction a regular newsletter will be developed - to register please email cbd.upgrade@qcc.nsw.gov.au or visit the webpage
