Upgrade to Botany Road Shops, Botany

Published on 22 August 2016


The City of Botany Bay is extremely proud of our productive and close working relationship with small business in our City. Local retailers, such as you, play an important role in the economic vitality of our City, providing employment and other benefits for the wider community. As part of Council’s commitment towards supporting local shopping precincts and our thriving small business economy, Council is investing in significant streetscape upgrade works on Botany Road, Botany as part of our 2016/2017 Capital Works program.

The location of the work includes:

  • Eastern side of Botany Road (from No. 1389A to No.1437);
  • Western side of Botany Road (from No. 1102 to No.1128);
  • Both sides of Banksia Street up to James Bourke Place (including in front of Post Office);
  • Northern side of Edward Street up to James Bourke Place.

Works will commence on Monday 22 August 2016 and are expected to take approximately 4-5 months to complete, weather permitting. A copy of the plans for the work is attached to this letter.

Work on Botany Road will be undertaken between 8:00pm-5:00am Monday to Friday.  Some work may also occur on Saturdays depending on Roads and Maritime Services’ requirements. Work on other streets will be undertaken between 7:00am-5:00pm Monday to Friday and 8:00am-1:00pm on Saturdays. The project will be divided into multiple sections to minimise construction time in front of individual businesses. Access to your business and customers will be maintained at all times.  Work will however cause some disruption to pedestrian traffic in front of your business and on Botany Road.  Alternative arrangements and appropriate safety measures will be put in place prior to commencement of the works. 

To avoid any risk of damage to vehicles and to assist in the efficient operation of the work, please do not park your vehicle/s on the street in the construction zone during this period.

We apologise for the inconvenience that this work will cause however, we are confident that this work will greatly improve the amenity and streetscape of this important retail precinct.

Please contact our Project Manager, Von Jones, on 0428 457 047 if you experience any difficulties during the period of construction.  If you require additional information about these works, please contact Simon Pu on 9366 3747.
