Campbelltown’s CBD is looking greener, and there’s more to come!
As part of Council’s ongoing commitment to improving the amenity and appearance of Queen Street’s CBD precinct, a total of 12 new planter pots with mature Magnolia ‘Exmouth’ trees have been installed along the kerbside between Patrick and Dumaresq Streets.
The pots will soon be enhanced with imagery of our local area, similar to the Hurley Street underpass project, highlighting the many natural assets that our city boasts.
Complementing previous enhancements, including replacement of the Lithgow Street shade structure, high pressure cleaning and resealing of pavements and street furniture, bollard renewal, installation of LED lighting and positioning of low line planter boxes, the new pots aim to improve the greenery of the streetscape and add natural shade.
While the root systems of trees that were removed from Queen Street in early 2016 were causing damage to street infrastructure and underground utility services, and impacting the safety of pedestrians through the lifting of pavers and creation of uneven surfaces, the newly installed pots with advanced trees help to improve the amenity of the space but are also easily moved/relocated.
Ongoing improvements to the streetscape, along with potential future redevelopment of buildings, won’t be impacted by the placement of the new pots, which can easily be repositioned.
The improvements have been well received by businesses and visitors to our city’s main street, and are a positive addition to the changing face of Queen Street.
