Earthworks for the first stage of the new park is well underway, with over 10,000m3 of soil delivered to site so far. This soil will raise the land to match the level of the adjacent school and provide the base from which an extension to Ridge Road and the park will be built.
We have installed temporary fencing and erected hoarding around most of the site. The hoarding showcases artworks created by Wentworth Point Primary School students highlighting the value of parks and play spaces in urban communities. Work is continuing to design public art which will depict student’s ideas from workshops we ran in partnership with the school in late 2018.
All works are being managed to minimise impacts on the school and nearby residents. Dust and air quality monitors are in place.
