Kevin Wheatley Reserve
Following the arson incident in July, reserve upgrade works have temporarily paused to decontaminate the area. The drainage design for the reserve is also being reviewed to improve its durability and performance. Once complete, the upgraded reserve will include two full-sized soccer fields with synthetic grass and sportsfield lights, an amenities building, play equipment and a half-court basketball court.
Works to upgrade The Pond have temporarily paused following the recent arson incident and will resume once the area has been decontaminated. Once complete, the waterbody will be enlarged, while new planting, viewing decks, seating and play equipment will enhance the area’s amenity.
Works to realign Riverside Drive next to Stage 4A to create a more comfortable and efficient travel route are complete. We have also extended the shared pedestrian and cycle path along Riverside Drive from Wheatley Drive to south of Towner Avenue.
Construction of Towner Avenue – the new road that will connect Riverside Drive with the Campbellfield Avenue/St Johns Road intersection – is underway.
The Western part of Towner Avenue is almost complete and is anticipated to open by the end of the year. This new section of road will connect St Johns Road through to Partridge Street. Construction of the final stretch of Towner Avenue to connect Partridge Street to Riverside Drive, south of Newbrook Shopping Village will commence in mid-2024. Residents can still access the shopping village carpark with a temporary detour in place.
