Belmont Community Zone
In 2016 PTA completed forward works along Central Avenue in preparation for the increase in bus and traffic movements around the new Belmont Station precinct. A number of services, including overhead power cables and the Southern Main Drain, were relocated as part of the works and on November 24 the newly formed Central Avenue was opened. Central Avenue now connects to Dunreath Drive and features a 6m wide landscaped median, street lighting, pedestrian crossings, cycle lanes and parking spaces. More than 1400 tree and plant species were planted along the verges and median to complete the new design. To find out more, view the forward works fact sheet.
With the forward works complete, Brearley Avenue was permanently closed on 17 January 2017 between First Street and Dunreath Drive to make way for construction of the new Belmont Station.
The Belmont construction site will be handed over to SI-NRW in February 2017. Early works in the Belmont Community Zone will involve site establishment and some construction works, including:
- boundary fencing, signage and security
- utility relocations
- minor clearing of vegetation and topsoil removal
- installation of temporary buildings, site amenities, parking
- construction of pads for buildings, plant and equipment areas
- installation of required plant and equipment.
