Ashfield Town Centre Upgrade

Inner West Council is pleased to announce that construction of the core areas of the Ashfield Town Centre has commenced.

Work began in June 2017 and is scheduled to be completed in 12 months, weather permitting.

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 plenty of 3 hour parking in the two Council carparks in 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.

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.
