Acceptance has been provided and this notification is advising that Council’s Contractor, CA&I, are to re-commence works in this zone.

These works will be conducted during daytime, works will take place from 10am to 7pm.

The Transport Management Centre has granted special approval for this location to undertake daytime works.

Tree install is ongoing with all expected trees in Cremorne to be planted by end of November.


What disruption is expected?

Council will be working 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.

Amenities are stored as per below image (and see related documents).



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.
