The Hurley Street pedestrian underpass will be temporarily closed, from 8 to 22 January, while revitalisation work is carried out.
An artists impression of how the revitalised Hurley Street pedestrian underpass will look.
The Hurley Street underpass connecting the CBD with the railway station will be closed for a period of two weeks in January as Campbelltown City Council undertakes work to refurbish the important pedestrian link.
The project will include improved lighting, a non-slip floor and a noticeboard highlighting ‘What’s On’ in Campbelltown, in addition to aesthetic enhancements which will see the inside of the tunnel freshly painted and adorned with images of iconic Campbelltown sights and events.
The underpass will be closed from 10pm on Sunday 8 January to 5pm on Sunday 22 January while the lighting and floor work is undertaken. The aesthetic improvements will be complete by the end of January.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the refurbishment aimed to improve pedestrian safety and enhance the amenity of the area.
“The Hurley Street underpass is an important entry point to our city and we want to make a good impression on visitors, and encourage people travelling to or from work to use the convenient, safe link,” he said.
“The upgrade will include the installation of new LED lights on both sides of the tunnel and resin flooring which will be slip-resistant and easy to clean.
“Council also has plans to install surveillance cameras, which will be in addition to the existing CCTV cameras managed by Transport for NSW, as a further safety measure.
“Council apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of the underpass, and we look forward to opening a revitalised and more welcoming tunnel.”
Pedestrians are advised to cross Hurley Street at the signalised pedestrian crossing adjacent to the taxi rank during the closure.
