Building Hawkesbury’s Future

Hawkesbury City Council is continuing its major works program of sealing gravelled roads, constructing new footpaths and building better infrastructure, as part of its expanded works program over 2018/19.

Other works to be completed over the next 12 months include rehabilitating and resealing roads, upgrading local parks and sporting facilities.

The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Barry Calvert recently visited several sites of completed and ongoing works.

“I’m proud to see that we are improving community facilities and completing many works for our community,” the Mayor said.

“Many of these new works include places where I have personally met with local residents to help resolve an issue, for instance the Mileham Street footpath. A new footpath has also been constructed on the north side of Argyle Street, between Mileham Street and Macquarie Street in South Windsor.

“As part of our road upgrade program, a new culvert has been constructed on Wheelbarrow Ridge Road in Colo Heights to better manage stormwater and to protect the road from erosion and storm damage. In Cornwallis, 250 metres of failing road pavement has been reconstructed,” Councillor Calvert said.

“We are getting the jobs done, with a strong focus on areas that benefit many in our community, including upgrading park furniture and play equipment in the Ham Common playground precinct, as well as starting landscape renovation work at St Albans Park, and upgrading picnic shelters at Governor Phillip Park.

“I encourage our community members to visit our website and Hawkesbury City Council’s Facebook, where we post regular updates on our ongoing projects.”
