Dutton Lane, Cabramatta, announcement
Published Monday, 9th February 2015
Council has nominated the builder to construct the new retail development in Dutton Lane, Cabramatta.
At the extraordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday night last week, Fairfield City Council nominated the builder to construct the new retail development in Dutton Lane, Cabramatta.
Works are due to start in late February and the new centre and car park are expected to be open before Christmas.
The Dutton Lane development will deliver a dramatic improvement to the urban streetscape of Cabramatta, delivering new jobs and office space as well as public amenities, public open space and new community facilities within the town centre.
During construction Council will be introducing some temporary measures to help minimise the impact on residents and businesses:
- 561 car park spaces will remain during construction in the Dutton Lane precinct and 2069 will be in the vicinity of the town centre.
- While public toilets are being refurbished temporary toilets will be provided.
- A new, free shuttle bus loop service will connect Cabramatta Town Centre and the surrounding residential community to parking facilities across the city, including at Canley Vale and Canley Heights.
- Community notice boards informing people of the progress of construction will be located near the pay station at the multi-storey car park and the kiosks in Dutton Lane.
- Fisher Street parking will temporarily change to increase accessibility for local residents to shop. There will be an introduction of three hours for free and after that a small fee for all day parking will be charged.
- An additional 90 spaces are available in Canley Vale, including:
36 unrestricted spaces at Link Road have also been made available for all day parking.
- A further 184 spaces under construction in Canley Vale will become available for shoppers and commuters once construction is completed.
Once completed, the Dutton Lane car park operations will be improved with the installation of additional entry and exit points, lifts, and a car parking guidance system.
The start of works is a significant milestone for Cabramatta. Existing parking within the vicinity of the town centre will increase to 3,293 spaces at the completion of the works.
The Dutton Lane development is funded and owned by Fairfield City Council on behalf of all the community.
