Five Dock revitalisation

The City of Canada Bay is committed to improving and maintaining our town centres and villages.

Vibrant town centres contribute to the social and economic wellbeing of our communities. We are supporting our community and local businesses through a significant streetscape upgrade along Great North Road as part of our long-term vision to revitalise Five Dock.

Public domain improvements to activate Five Dock Town Centre were an outcome of the Five Dock Urban Design Study, (adopted by Council in 2014), which identified a 20-year vision for the precinct.

The intended outcomes of the streetscape upgrade include:

  • Improving the public amenity which makes the centre a more attractive place to work in and visit
  • Implementing a streetscape design which focuses on pedestrian safety through slowing down vehicles and installing additional pedestrian refuges
  • Enhancing the environmental, social and cultural sustainability of the place; and retaining and attracting businesses and residents.  

In 2015/2016, Council committed capital works funding to undertake the first stage of the upgrade along Great North Road between Lyons Road and Henry Street. These works were completed in mid-2017.

Key deliverables of Stage One include:

  • Planting of street trees and shrubs
  • Installation of high quality pavements and street furnishings
  • Relocation of existing overhead power network undergroundInstallation of new LED street lighting
  • Improvements to the drainage system
  • Introduction of area parking signage to reduce poles and repeater signage.

In the 2017/2018 Capital Works budget, Council has committed to commence Stage Two of the Five Dock Town Centre revitalisation from Henry Street to Queens Road. These works are anticipated to commence in early 2018.
