Westfield works update

16 Dec 2006

Enabling works at Westfield Doncaster are well advanced in preparation for the proposed commencement of the revitalisation of the shopping centre in mid-January 2007:

  • On-site construction worker amenities are being installed on the west side of the rooftop carpark this week
  • Building of a power substation is complete on the former Village Twin Cinemas site where a proposed multi-deck carpark will be created
  • Other new power substations (grey brick structures) have been built on-site
  • Excavation and piling on the west side of Tower St is continuing, including on the former parking area near the Goodson St entrance
  • Centre carpark access from the southeast is via Council and Goodson Sts. Relocation of the power under the east side footpath in Tower St has been completed, with most of the path re-paved up to Doncaster Rd
  • The temporary relocation of selected mature palm trees from the Williamsons Road frontage will occur in mid-January. The feature trees will be replanted at Westfield Doncaster once the proposed project is complete
  • Various power, water, gas and telecommunications companies have completed service upgrade and relocation works in and around the Centre.

Construction activity on-site at Westfield Doncaster will cease by Friday 22 December and resume on Monday 15 January 2007.
