Walker Street Footpath Improvement

Consultation has concluded

Essential works are planned to upgrade the footpath, and the kerb and guttering along the eastern side of Walker Street between Parkes Street and Whitty Road.

It is anticipated that the work will commence in the second half of 2016 and will take approximately four months to complete, subject to weather conditions.

With the exception of the footpath in front of Helensburgh Plaza and Coles, the area in front of the commercial centre (to 65 Walker Street) on the Eastern side will be brick paved with an asphalt strip adjacent to the sandstone kerb. The sandstone kerbing will be preserved. In addition, street furniture and street trees will be incorporated into the overall streetscape upgrade.

The footpath and kerb infront of Coles has recently been replaced so this area will remain intact. There are no plans to replace this section of the kerb or the footpath.

From 65 Walker Street south the asphalt paving will be replaced with a concrete footpath with a grass verge on either side of the path. New kerb will also be installed. Kerb ramps will be installed on street corners to improve access.

The work will be completed in the following stages:

Stage 1 - Parkes Street - Short Street

Stage 2 - Coles Driveway - Lilyvale Street

Stage 3 - Lilyvale Street - Whitty Road
