Neutral Bay Streetscape upgrade

Public Domain Upgrades on Military Road

Public domain upgrades will occur on Military Road between Young Street and Waters Street (north side of Military Road) and May Gibbs Plaza and Rangers Road (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 bicycle parking

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


Where are the works commencing?

Works are currently nearing completion on the north side footpath of Military Road between Young St and Opposite Wycombe St and on the south side footpath of Military Road between Rangers Rd and Wycombe St. This notification is advising that CA&I are to commence works in the next zone.  




When will the works take place?

Works in Zone 6 will commence on Tuesday 3 September 2019 for a duration of 6 weeks.

These works will include a combination of daytime works throughout the week and night works 3 nights a week. The Transport Management Centre has granted special approval to undertake daytime works in Zone 6 to minimise impacts to residents along Military Road and surrounding streets.

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




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.



If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CA&I’s dedicated community liaison officer Menios Mitakidis on 0404 090 147 or

Further notifications will be issued as works commence in other stages in Neutral Bay and Cremorne.

All reasonable efforts will be made to complete the works on schedule, subject to weather and ground conditions. We will notify if there are significant changes to the program.

Council and CA&I appreciate your cooperation and understanding, and apologies in advance for any inconvenience that these necessary works may cause.
