Additional resources for deep clean of town centres


To support and expand on a clean of the LGA’s key transport hubs planned by Transport for NSW, Georges River Council has broadened the scope to ensure a more thorough cleansing of all public domain areas in Hurstville and Kogarah town centres.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said that as part of its Economic and Social Recovery Plan, it is focusing funding and resources to improve the cleanliness and amenity of both Kogarah and Hurstville.

“Normally hubs of activity, Hurstville and Kogarah are characterised by unique local businesses that encourage people from all over the metropolitan area to visit, shop and linger,” said Mayor Greene.

“The flow on effects of the COVID-19 crisis has reduced traffic flow to these areas and given us a chance to apply a bit of extra maintenance to make them even more appealing to the community.

“We also need to do all we can to reassure people that our key town centres are clean and safe for doing business and shopping.

"The cleanse at Kogarah will extend to the station forecourt, along Railway Parade and the amenities there, up to Kogarah Town Square, the library forecourt and O’Keefe’s Lane footpaths.

“We will do a thorough clean under the shop awnings in those areas, as well as the bins, pavements, retaining walls, garden beds and street furniture.

“Hurstville will be given a fresh face as well, with a similar treatment being applied to the forecourt area outside Georges River Civic Centre, Entertainment Centre and the Hurstville Museum & Gallery.

“Cleaning will obviously take place along the busy Forest Road including the station forecourt and ramp entrance, Hurstville Memorial Square, Hurstville Plaza and the Crofts Avenue footpath, the forecourt outside the post office and part of Ormonde Parade.

“We want people in the local area and across Sydney to know we are ready and open for business,” added Mayor Greene.
