Fairfield City Centre gets footpath, kerb and gutter renewal

Work has begun to refresh footpaths and kerbs and gutters in the Fairfield City centre this financial year.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said Council is spending about $800,000 to spruce up the Fairfield City Centre in the next six months.

The Fairfield City centre works are part of Council’s $4.1 million investment in kerbs, gutters and footpaths across the local government area,” Mayor Carbone said. 

“The Fairfield City Centre works have begun and cover an extensive area from north of Nelson Street to south of the railway station.

“Our City Centres need to be refreshed and upgraded from time to time to ensure they remain great places to live and do business.

The work will see about 960 metres of footpath renewal, as well as renewed kerb and gutters, including the installation of pram ramps to improve accessibility around the City Centre.

The pram ramps will be in Station Street, Nelson Street, Barbara Street, Smart Street and The Crescent.

“Infrastructure renewal ensures our business areas continue to attract investment, shoppers and services, and remain the economic beating hearts of our City,” Mayor Carbone said.

“The local economy is the lifeblood of our community, creating local jobs and providing essential products and services for residents.

“Council is playing a significant part in keeping our centres modern by upgrading the Fairfield City Centre’s basic infrastructure.”

Council has also planned renewal works for Cabramatta, Carramar, Bonnyrigg and Fairfield Heights town centres this financial year.
