Station Street Footpath Renewal Wentworth Falls
Council is renewing the western footpath on Station Street in Wentworth Falls by replacing the ten existing claret ash trees with ten lipstick maple trees.
The Revitalisation of Katoomba Civic Centre is funded by a $1.5 million grant from the Building Better Regions Fund, with 50 per cent of the project funds provided by Council.
The project includes external repainting, new lighting, improved security and toilet facilities, public art and improved connections to Council’s Cultural Centre. Artwork and architectural design works are currently in the process of being commissioned.
The continued improvement of the town centre footpaths will be funded with $870,000 from the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program. This follows footpath improvements delivered at Bathurst Road to the Carrington Hotel in 2012 and near the post office and Pioneer Place in 2014.
This new project will see delivery of new footpaths, kerbs and gutters from the southern side of the pedestrian crossing on Gang Gang Street, continuing up the eastern side of Katoomba Street. Tree plantings will remain and Council will refurbish any impacted street furniture. This upgrade will start early 2021 and is expected to take approximately four months.
