June 2017 update and map (2MB)

 

 

To coincide with the ongoing rejuvenation of Brett Whiteley Place, the surrounding area adjacent to the Greenwood Plaza entrance on Miller St has also been upgraded.

Works on Miller St have included widening the existing footpath and pram ramps to allow for safer pedestrian travel, installation of new bus shelters, more seating and granite paving.

Pedestrian walkways remain in place along either side of the construction hoarding around Brett Whiteley Place. with access available to both Elizabeth Plaza and Denison Street. It is also still possible to cross the road on Miller St and the Pacific Highway.

When the Brett Whiteley Place stage nears completion in the first half of 2017, 12 super advanced Japanese Elms will be planted in specially designed “structural tree pits” to contain the trees root systems while allowing the trees to grow and thrive through to maturity.

Once this stage is complete, work will start on phase 2 of the project - the upgrade of Elizabeth Plaza.

Council will endeavour to carry out works on this Project during weekdays but due to heavy traffic in the area, it may be necessary to undertake some of the work on weekends. Work times will be from 7am-5pm on weekdays and 7am-1pm on Saturdays.

Council will be working closely with the contractor to minimise disruption to local businesses and the community as much as possible. The Contractor will have a dedicated community liaison officer on site at all times to deal with any concerns. 

 

Background

The upgrade of Brett Whiteley Place, Elizabeth Plaza and the Miller St bus stop zone outside the MLC building commenced in August 2016 and will take approximately 10 months to complete.

The first phase of construction involves the upgrade of Brett Whiteley Place - this is expected to take 6 months to complete. These proposed works include new high-quality granite footpath paving, new and improved seating arrangements, refurbishment of the existing woodward fountains, upgrade of the drainage, installation of street furniture, new bus stops on Miller St, planting of new trees, new and improved lighting, improved pedestrian circulation and the creation of an events space.

The second phase of the construction will commence upon completion of construction at Brett Whiteley Place. This phase includes the upgrade of the existing footpath to granite paving, new and improved seating arrangements, installation of street furniture, upgraded drainage, planting of new trees and catenary lighting. These works are expected to take 4 months to complete.

Phase three of the project will commence upon an independent development at 100 Mount Street. The existing pavement comprises of a concrete base with concrete pavers. The existing pavers will be replaced with high quality granite set pavers together with landscape and street furniture improvements.

Additional Information

The plans were on public exhibition for public comment between 15 January and 12 February 2015 and have since been approved by Council.

The design was prepared in accordance with the materials detailed in Council’s Public Domain Style Manual.

As with any large construction project, there will be disruption to the normal functioning of the area for the duration of the works. At this stage, it is anticipated that the bulk of the works in Brett Whiteley Place and Miller St bus zone will be completed by the end of December 2016, pending weather conditions and traffic arrangements imposed by the Traffic Management Centre.

Council will be working closely with the Contractor to minimise disruption to local businesses and the community as much as possible within the constraints of the worksite.

However, some construction will generate noise. Council will endeavour to carry out works during weekdays but due to heavy traffic in the area, it may be necessary to undertake some of the work on weekends. There will be limited night-time work up to 10pm.

The contractor will have a full time community liaison officer on site at all times during the day to attend to any complaints. Measures will be in place to minimise the construction impact as much as possible to the community.
