Starting Tuesday 17 November, works include replacing existing kerb and road pavement and installing a new drainage system.

Lake Macquarie City Council’s Manager Assets Management Brendan Callander recognised the importance of both Councils collaborating at the boundaries of each City.

In the past, this division of the road between two Councils has posed issues with the maintenance and construction of the road and related infrastructure,” Mr Callander said.

Working together means that we can maintain consistent service delivery in both Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.”

City of Newcastle’s Manager of Assets and Projects Joanne Rigby acknowledged the positive impact the joint project would deliver to residents.

City of Newcastle is pleased to collaborate with Lake Macquarie City Council on this important project which will improve drainage and upgrade the road surface to the benefit of residents on both sides of the boundary,” Ms Rigby said.

Other features of the upgrade will include upgrades of existing bus stops and removal of existing driveway gutter bridges at the southern end of the street.

Works are expected to be complete by mid-2021, weather permitting.
