Ashfield Town Centre upgrade

Inner West Council is undertaking a substantial of the core area of the Ashfield town centre.

The core area comprises:

  • Hercules Street
  • The Esplanade
  • Markham Place, and
  • Brown Street

Council has appointed CA&I Pty Ltd as the contractor to undertake construction of the upgrade.

In order to increase and improve pedestrian areas there will be some reduction in street parking. However, there is 3-hour parking available in the two Council car parks on Brown Street.

There will be some disruption during the works, however Council and CA&I will work hard to minimise these short term impacts and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

What will be upgraded?

The upgrade includes:

  • Wider footpaths with new paving
  • New energy efficient lighting installed on multi-function poles
  • Street furniture including seats bins, bike racks and bubbler
  • New trees and landscaping
  • Removal of old bus shelters and construction of a new shelter in Brown Street
  • New deck and elevated walkway along the Esplanade

Construction Staging

Work will be carried out in stages as shown below. Work in Hercules Street will generally be limited to two sections under construction at any one time. Each stage will be substantially completed prior to commencement of the next stage in order to minimise disruption to local businesses.

Due to the extensive work required to the Esplanade (stage 10) this section will be under construction at the same time as works to the other stages.

Access to properties and businesses will be maintained throughout construction.

Further Information

Local businesses and residents will be informed regularly on the progress of the works.

Council’s contractor for the works, CA&I Pty Ltd, has appointed a community liaison officer to be available at all times. See details below.
