What’s the news?

Construction on the Jellicoe Street Piazza is underway. The City of Canada Bay has awarded the contract for construction to KK Civil Engineering and works are due to commence late September 2020. Construction is expected to take three months, subject to any government restrictions in response to COVID-19 and prevailing weather conditions.

Jellicoe St Revised concept

Full details are in the fact sheet in the sidebar.

There will be seating mainly housed under trees for shade, providing storage for pop up furniture. There will also be power and water access for small community events and a USB mobile device charging station.

A key concern for Majors Bay Road and surrounds is parking, therefore this design has created two extra spaces in this area through a narrowing of the footpath. Due to community feedback an additional mobility parking space has also been created.

A parking study has been carried out across the area and Council will share this study in the coming weeks and how this may affect Jellicoe Street.
