Council to commence construction of the new Hurstville Central Plaza

24/08/2017

Administrator of Georges River Council, John Rayner, said works to create the new Hurstville Central Plaza are now scheduled to commence in October 2017.

Mr Rayner said the works, which will be undertaken by KK Consultants, will commence following the completion of the demolition of the Council-owned building at 296 Forest Road, Hurstville, in September.

“This site was acquired by Council over eight years ago, and this is a long overdue delivery of public space for the local community,” he said.

“Following the demolition of this building, KK Consultants will commence the construction of the new Plaza, which will consist of shaded seating and outdoor dining areas, a water feature, and soft landscaping at Forest Road.”

“It will also consist of the construction of new public amenities and pavement lighting.”

“The Plaza will be a new and vibrant meeting place, which will promote wellbeing and celebrate the community’s diverse cultural heritage.”

“It will also improve street-level connectivity between Hurstville Central, Hurstville Westfield and the Hurstville Transport Interchange,” he added.

“This multi-million dollar project will greatly enhance the centre of the Hurstville CBD and make it a more appealing and attractive place for everyone.”

“The concept plan of the new Plaza can be viewed at Council’s website www.georgesriver.nsw.gov.au,” he said.
