Shops open for business during Macquarie Mall transformation work

October 9, 2015 by  

Liverpool, New South Wales residents are a step closer to experiencing a new-look Macquarie Mall after work began on Stage One of the transformation programme in September.

Mayor Ned Mannoun said the works would not disrupt access to Mall retail outlets, which would continue to trade.

The mall, which has been featured on promotional materials such as postcards and brochures many times in the past, will soon be sporting an exciting new look, according to the Mayor who said this would include chessboards, street furniture, a playground to include a water play feature, trees, and new paving.

He said the aim was to create a space where family and friends could spend time and feel relaxed.

Mayor Mannoun said work on the First Stage kicked off at the Elizabeth Street end of the Mall. The transformation will be halted from November 29 to January 18 to cater for shopping crowds over Christmas.

Stage 2, which will include the playground, is expected to be complete by May 2016.

The Mayor said he wanted to assure shoppers that all shops would be accessible during Stage 1 works, with the majority of them being undertaken at night to reduce disruption.

He urged visitors, residents and businesses to be patient during the construction, explaining that the result would provide one of the most vibrant and modern malls in Sydney.
