Issues

The Smithfield-Wetherill Park Industrial Estate is the largest industrial estate in the southern hemisphere and the hub of manufacturing and distribution in Greater Western Sydney. It is at the geographic centre of Sydney’s major industrial zones and sits strategically between the major population and urban growth zones in the north west and south west of Sydney.

More than 1,000 manufacturing, wholesale, transport and service firms employ more than 20,000 people.

These factors make Smithfield-Wetherill Park a strategic location for industrial services and the manufacture and distribution of a wide range of industrial equipment, food, building and consumer products.

Projects

·        West Side: New pram ramps, kerb and gutter and stormwater drainage at intersections.

 

The Horsley Drive (between Justin Street & Cumberland Highway)

·        Upgrade of pedestrian refuge and pram ramps, new graffiti proof rubbish bins, terrabond bays for existing trees and steam cleaning of footpaths.

Truck Parking Facility

 

Truck drivers who visit the Smithfield-Wetherill Park Industrial Estate can now use the new truck parking facility to make rest periods in the area more comfortable. Construction of the facility adjacent to the Hassall Street and Widemere Road intersection was completed in August 2007. Tap water facilities will be included in early 2008. 

Depending on the usage and success of the new facilities, further development may include bitumen paving, landscaping and toilet and washing amenities.

Gateway Projects                                                                        

New gateway features have been construcred at the key entrance points to the Smithfield Wetherill Park Industrial Estate to highlight entrance to the area. Signage and landscaping works were carried out at the corner of Cowpasture Road and The Horsley Drive, and at Rosford Reserve on the corner of Gipps and Hassall streets.



Banners Project

Fairfield City Council is also planning to install new banners at key locations throughout the Estate to highlight its importance as the manufacturing and employment hub of Western Sydney.

These banners will be erected in mid 2008 once the designs and locations are finalised.
