The City of Canada Bay is committed to improving and maintaining our town centres and villages.

Vibrant town centres contribute to the social and economic wellbeing of our communities, and we are supporting our community and local businesses by planning for Stage Two (Queens Road to Henry Street) of the Five Dock Streetscape Upgrade. Stage One works along Great North Road between Lyons Road and Henry Street concluded in mid-2017.

Public domain improvements to activate the Five Dock Town Centre were an outcome of the  Five Dock Urban Design Study, (adopted by Council in 2014), which identified a 20-year vision for the precinct.

The community consultation on the Five Dock Streetscape concept plans was carried out in 2015. Council has reviewed and undertaken amendments to the original concept plan.  

The revised stage two concept plan outcomes include:

  • Planting street trees and shrubs
  • Installing high-quality pavements and street furnishings
  • Improvements to the drainage system  

Construction update

In December 2020, QMC Group was appointed to deliver this project on behalf of Council.

The stage two works commenced in January 2021 and were completed in late January 2022. Wet weather and impacts of the Covid pandemic caused some delays.

Streetscape sections on Great North Road and Second Avenue affected by the Sydney Metro West project will be undertaken by Sydney Metro West on completion of the metro station works.
