Work has now been completed on this major project, and the community celebrated the end of works with an official ceremony and Summer Party on Saturday 22 November 2014.
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.
For more information on the refurbishment contact Council’s Customer Service team on (02) 4227 7111.
