When will the works take place?

Works are to commence on Monday 3 February 2020 for a duration of 10 weeks.

Due to many requests from residents and businesses not to undertake the works at night, the Transport Management Centre has granted special approval for works at this location to be undertaken during the day time, predominately taking place from 7am to 7pm.

In the unavoidable event of night time works being required, notifications will be provided prior to commencement.

Council are presently out to tender for public domain upgrade works on Military Road in Cremorne Central.

The upgrade works includes:

  • Paving upgrade

  • More garden beds

  • More seats and bins

  • More bicycle parking

Where are the works?

The public domain upgrade for Cremorne Central is shown in red shading in the image below being for between Winnie Street and Cremorne Plaza (north side of Military Road) and Holt Avenue and Spencer Street (on the south side of Military Avenue).

This upgrade will be undertaken in several stages with further notifications being issued once more information is known.




When will the works take place?

The works are planned to take place between March 2020 and early December 2020.  

Due to clearways and bus zones in several sections of the locations of the works, works will be undertaken as a combination of day-time works and night-time works.

Day-time works will take place from 10am to 7pm.

Night-time works will take place 9pm to 5am with saw cutting and jack hammering ceasing at 12am.


What disruption is expected?

Council works closely with CA&I to minimise disruption to residents and businesses.

We will endeavour 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 endeavour to minimise the noise from our works, but some construction activities will generate unavoidable noise.

CA&I currently are occupying a site compound in the Cabramatta Road. This will remain in place until all of CA&I’s works on the south side of Military Road in Cremorne are complete.

A new site compound will be located in MacPherson Street for works on the north side of Military Road. Notifications will be provided to those locally affected by the compound prior to installation.




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.
