Projects include safer and more accessible streets and pedestrian walkways, new and refurbished childcare and community centres, bold public artworks and revitalised parks and streetscapes, involving an investment of $1 billion over the life of the projects.
These projects are part of the $1.8 billion the City has set aside for a building and construction program over the next decade. Nearly 400 projects will provide new and renovated facilities for communities and businesses across the local government area.
City of Sydney CEO, Monica Barone, said the City had delivered hundreds of important projects including parks, playgrounds, childcare, pools, libraries, theatres and community and cultural spaces over the last 10 years, and was now working on hundreds more for Sydneysiders to enjoy into the future.
“These state-of-the-art community facilities and infrastructure projects will help create more welcoming and connected neighbourhoods that meet the needs of our growing population of families and workers,” Ms Barone said.
“From transforming George Street and its surrounding laneways and continuing development of the Green Square town centre, to creating new childcare centres and dozens of parks, the City is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for central Sydney residents.
“Our 10-year financial plan is a huge investment that will nurture the city’s liveability, boost the economy, encourage tourism, improve sustainability, create new public open spaces and enhance our cultural life.”
More than 30 projects in central Sydney are part of the City’s capital works program and dozens more are in the pipeline for delivery over the next 10 years.
