Newcombe Street upgrade

Newcombe Street upgrade

New plaza for Paddington

The City has completed the majority of upgrade works to Newcombe Street, Paddington.

We planted 3 new Jacaranda trees and a new stormwater system was installed. The main works, including the road reopening at the Oxford Street end were completed at the end of 2016.

The new plaza includes a grassed area and space for stalls as part of Paddington Markets. 

The works associated with the private development of the 'Gordon' at 1 Newcombe Street, were completed in May 2017. The City's works associated with the private development at the site of 391–393 Oxford Street will be completed when the hoardings are removed. 

Council approved this project in June 2015 after consulting with the community.
