The upgrade to Pearson Street Mall will encourage more activity, offer places and different options for people to connect, enjoy safely and keep returning.

Works update

Works are progressing well on the revitalisation of the Mall, and are on-track for completion in early 2021. We are now moving into Stage Three of the works, which involves upgrading the intersection of Ridley and Pearson streets.

Night works will start on Sunday 17 January and are expected to be complete by Thursday 21 January, pending weather. We are completing these works at night to reduce the impact on buses and traffic in the area.

We apologies for any inconvenience caused. If you have any questions, contact Site Supervisor Shane Longman on 0423 589 114.

Stage of works

The work will be undertaken in three stages to minimise disruptions to businesses and the community.
