Work has now been completed on the majority of this major project, and construction in the southern end of Church Street is expected to be finished shortly.
Everyone’s invited to attend our official community celebration to mark the completion of the Crown Street Mall refurbishment project on Saturday 22 November. Proceedings start at 12pm, and will be followed by a Summer Party
organised by Destination Wollongong from 12.30pm.
After years of planning, construction on the Crown Street Mall refurbishment began in February 2013, and paused briefly for the 2013 Christmas period before resuming in early 2014.
As well as removing all old infrastructure and installing 52,000 new pavers, the project has included the addition of decorative lighting, free wi-fi, street furniture and a sustainable watering system for the new gum and Flame trees.
The $19.4 million refurbishment of Crown Street Mall has been part-funded by a $5m grant from the Australian Government.
