Maitland unveils exciting roads, infrastructure projects

Maitland City Council has unveiled a raft of exciting road and infrastructure projects, totalling more than $2 million.

The organisation recently received $2.8 million as part of Phase 2 of the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program to undertake priority developments, confirmed to be delivered before the end of 2021.

The five projects include a wide range of additions to further develop Bolwarra Lookout.

Both the car park and playground will receive redevelopments, new barbecue and seating areas installed, and there will be an upgrade to the toilets and access points including a connection from Paterson Road.

Fieldsend Oval, East Maitland, will also be upgraded with improvements to the car park, storage facilities, landscaping area and site fencing.

There’s a range of footpath developments, too, including an upgraded shared path installed in Thornton and new footpaths at Bolwarra Oval and Largs.

“These upcoming roads and community infrastructure projects, funded by the Australian Government, will be a great addition to the local community,” council’s manager engineering and design Kevin Stein said.

“It’ll further engage and connect individuals to important and significant services.”

All projects will complete a design stage before construction begins later in the year.

Under Phase 1, Maitland City Council was allocated $872,757 to deliver an irrigation system at Bolwarra Sports Complex, and pathways at Chisholm Road and The Boulevarde, East Maitland, and Steamer Street, Morpeth.

Those works are to be completed by July 2021.
