Carrington Drive, Centennial Park

After a slight delay due to wet weather, we’ve now completed the resurfacing of Carrington Drive in Centennial Park.

Carrington Drive, stretching across the northern end of Centennial Park, caters to a high volume of daily motorists, cyclists, dog walkers and pedestrians. Additionally, it adjoins two major underground reservoirs and is a key carriageway for patrons attending the annual Moonlight Cinema when it is in session.

As part of our Sustainable Parklands Program, we identified this busy roadway has a priority need for repair and resurfacing. The work has now been completed, and the 800 metre stretch of new roadway now re-opened for general use.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we undertook these important works.
