Print Page
Council has reached stage 3 of the Thomas Gibson Park Master Plan 5/03/2012 - 30/03/2012
Wollongong City Council  have now reached stage 3 of the Thomas Gibson Park Master Plan, as part of the implementation process Council are inviting you to have your say on the project.

The car park and park entry is being upgraded by Council to increase parking for commuters and sport participants, and to improve safe access for pedestrians and vehicles.
Stage 3 also includes an extension of the shared way access through the park, improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
The implementation of stage 3 will need to involve some tree removal to enable safe traffic flow. The trees for removal are currently very compromised by overhead power lines, or are weed species (Camphor Laurel).  Eleven new advanced trees will be planted to replace the trees that are removed.
The upgrade works are set to occur during May and June 2012, there will be some disruption to park visitors and sporting games. However, once complete the upgrades will provide an increase in parking and improve safety.
Council staff will be available to talk to about the planned upgrades on Thursday, 22 March at Thirroul Train Station at 7am.
