The transformation of the Blacktown CBD has taken another step forward with the completion of the first stage of demolition work in Blacktown City Council’s Warrick Lane redevelopment project.
The first stage involved levelling the old Blacktown Mall in Main Street and a number of adjoining shops and the removal of all debris and materials.
The demolition and excavation comes ahead of the construction of the 450-space underground car park, new town plaza and buildings flanking the plaza.
The Warrick Lane redevelopment project will also provide the site for Australian Catholic University’s Blacktown Campus.
The next stage of the project will commence in Mid July involving the demolition of 81-83 Main Street, including the buildings occupied by Westpac and Connect Hearing.
Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said: “Throughout the demolition process Council has insisted that contractors put in place strict dust, noise and vibration minimisation measures.
“The site is sealed off from the surrounding area and specialist hazardous materials disposal measures are in place and rigorously enforced to ensure complete public safety,” Mayor Bali said.
