singleton town centre - Stage 2 upgrade


The modernisation of John Street is spreading, with the $7 million Town Centre - Stage 2 Upgrade  to continue Singleton’s transformation as a destination for retail, dining, recreation and leisure.

We are revitalising John Street from the Ryan Avenue intersection north to Campbell Street, and from Campbell Street to the New England Highway to enhance the gateways to the Town Centre from the highway as well as improve traffic flows and pedestrian connectivity.

Construction work will start in late July 2020 and will continue for up to 12 months (weather permitting).  Robson Civil have been appointed as the principle contractor, and are currently in the planning phase of the Singleton Town Centre Upgrade Stage 2.

During the coming weeks, you will begin to see Robson staff around Campbell and John Streets familiarising themselves with the environment and developing detailed construction plans

 What work will be done? 

Key construction activities involved in the project are:

  • Re-lining of existing storm water drains
  • Placing powerlines underground and connection of services to each building
  • Construction of new footpaths, kerbs and gutters
  • Landscaping and irrigation works
  • Installation of street lights, furniture, and signage

 When will the work be done ?

Most activity will be carried out from 6am until 6pm, Monday to Friday, and Saturday from 8am to 3pm, weather permitting. If we need to work outside these times, we will let you know.

Will traffic and parking be affected?

During construction there will be necessary changes to the traffic conditions and car parking in the precinct, however the project will be staged to ensure disruptions are kept to a minimum. We do this by ensuring construction is as efficient as possible so the project is completed in a timely fashion.

What about access to businesses?

Access to businesses will  be maintained with pedestrian diversions in place and changes to driveway access. Considered Traffic Management, Pedestrian Management and Construction Staging plans will be made public prior to the commencement of works to keep the public and stakeholders informed of upcoming activity. We acknowledge that, as with any major construction, there will be some short-term disruption. We will do our best to minimise these impacts and make sure that access is maintained throughout the project.

What next?

Buildings within the work precinct will be sent regular updates via mail to inform them of any upcoming work in their area or changes to scheduled work. These notifications will also be available on this page. Regular updates will also be posted on the Singleton Council Facebook page.
