Public domain upgrades will occur on Military Road between Cremorne Garden plaza and MacPherson St (north side of Military Rd) and Spencer St and Spofforth St (on the south side). The upgrade works are funded by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) and includes:

  • Paving upgrade
  • More garden beds
  • More seats and bins
  • More trees
  • New watering points
  • More bicycle parking

At the May 2019 Council meeting Council voted unanimously to award the public domain upgrade works on Military Rd in Neutral Bay and Cremorne to the highest ranked tenderer. The contractor for these works CA&I Pty Ltd.


Where are the works commencing?

The upgrade for Cremorne is shown in red shading below. This upgrade will be undertaken in several stages with the first stage being the south side footpath of Military Road Cremorne, between Spofforth Street and Cabramatta Road (Zone 13).



When will the works take place?

Works in south side footpath of Military Road Cremorne, between Spofforth Street and Cabramatta Road (Zone 13) will commence on Tuesday 8 October 2019 for a duration of 6 weeks.

These works will include a combination of daytime and nighttime works. The Transport Management Centre has granted special approval to undertake day works in Zone 13.

Daytime works will take place from 10am to 7pm.

Nightworks will take place 9pm to 5am with saw cutting and jack hammering ceasing at 12am.


What disruption is expected?

Council will be working closely with CA&I to minimise disruption to residents and businesses.

We will endeavor to provide access to shops and businesses at all times, however, there will be some unavoidable disruptions to access, parking and pedestrian traffic.

In addition, some bus stop locations may be temporarily moved locally to allow the safe use of the bus away from construction activities, signage will be in place to indicate where to wait for the bus.

We will also endeavor to minimize the noise from our works, but some construction activities will generate unavoidable noise.

In response to requests from the community, Transport for NSW and Council will be undertaking some of our works at the same time to avoid prolonged disruption to the community.


Why are the works taking place?

The works are part of Council’s ongoing efforts to make the shopping and commercial strip more appealing as a shopping destination for residents and visitors.

The works will include new materials and furniture from our Public Domain Style Manual and Design Codes.
