Pitt Town community projects update

Welcome to your regular update on the many projects happening around the Pitt Town area. As these projects are rolled out, we will continue to keep the community up to date.

Pitt Town road upgrades

Work is underway to upgrade a number of key roads in Pitt Town to improve driver and pedestrian safety. The roads include Bathurst Street, Hall Street, Hawkesbury Street, Johnston Street, Wells Street and Punt Road. You can view a full list of the works at https://www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/_resources/media-releases/2021/may/heritage-properties-benefit-from-$40,000-in-local-heritage-grants.

This week, contractors are setting up at the roads listed, investigating service locations (such as water mains, electricity and phone cables), preparing for traffic management and arranging for the delivery of construction materials.

Construction work will begin from Wednesday, 16 June 2021, weather permitting, on Bathurst Street from Church Street to Buckingham Street. Please drive to conditions and follow the instructions from traffic controllers and detour signage.
