Stage 2 begins on Sydney Street Rejuvenation Project

Stage 1A of the Sydney Street Rejuvenation Project is nearing completion with just tree planting and line marking to go.

Works have begun on the eastern side of the street as part of stage 1B. These works will see the renewal of some sections of damaged kerbs and footpaths, new street trees and garden plantings and the pedestrian outstand at Mitchell Street.

Works will begin Monday 25 July on the western section of Sydney Street between Union Street and Bourke Street as part of stage 2A.

Key features of Stage 2 include the installation of kerb outstands at Mill Street Mall and in front of the Commonwealth Bank to provide more footpath space, some bluestone pavements, new street trees and the installation of two new public bus stops.

The concurrent works on stage 1B and 2A will mean increased disruption to pedestrians and traffic on Sydney Street.

Your favourite local businesses will still be open but check with them for access arrangements as works continue.

Please take care when travelling and shopping in Kilmore and follow all directional signage.

While some parking spaces are occupied by the works, there is still off-street parking behind the Royal Oak Hotel on the west side and at the Kilmore Library.

If you have any further questions or would like to arrange a time to discuss the works, you can contact the project team on 0490 455 794 or email sydneyst@mitchellshire.vic.gov.au

The project team will also be available for drop in discussion at the Kilmore Library every Tuesday 9 am to 5 pm and Thursday 12 to 5 pm, during the construction phase.

Comments from Mitchell Shire Mayor

This project is an important part of preparing for Kilmore and Mitchell Shire’s future.

Recently released Census data shows Kilmore is continuing to grow, with an estimated population of 10,363 people.

The Sydney Street Rejuvenation Project means better infrastructure for current residents and traders and those that will come here in the future.

We appreciate the patience shown by Kilmore traders and residents during the works.

We know they are an inconvenience, but they are vital for the future of the town.
