Wellington Square Upgrade

Latest News:

Construction to commence in early 2020

The contract for the construction of Wellington Square Upgrade is expected to be awarded in December 2019, with work planned to commence in early 2020.

Construction Notice January 2020

Accelerated Construction Program
The enhancement of Wellington Square was originally planned to be staged over three years. An accelerated program has now been adopted, which still maintains access to large areas of Wellington Square during construction but reduces the duration of impacts on local residents and park users. Under the new program, the main works will be completed by the end of 2020. Details of the staging plan can be found in the notes from the first Construction Reference Group meeting here.

First meeting of Construction Reference Group (CRG) held

The first meeting of the Wellington Square Construction Reference Group was held on Wednesday 27 November 2019. Notes from the meeting can be viewed here, and include an update on the playground design, Stolen Generations artwork, and the staging of construction.

The Wellington Square Final Masterplan was endorsed by Council on 25 September 2018. For details of how the Masterplan was developed following community and stakeholder consultation, visit the Wellington Square Masterplan project page here.

We will continue to provide project updates on this page, so please check back in if you are interested in following the progress of the enhancement of Wellington Square.
