Kingsgrove will no longer look like a suburb divided.
Bayside Council has decided to spend $500,000 to upgrade its side of Kingsgrove Road in the town centre to match works undertaken by Georges River Council across the road.
The town centre is situated on the local government boundaries of Bayside and Georges River Councils.
The west side of Kingsgrove Road is located within Georges River Council and a public domain upgrade was recently undertaken on the Georges River side of the road.
The east side of Kingsgrove Road is located within Bayside Council and no upgrade works have been undertaken.
Bayside Council has now decided it's time that both sides of Kingsgrove Road can look each other in the eye.
The upgrade of the east side of town centre was included in Bayside Council's 2018/2019 City Projects Program for embellishment due to its importance as a growing neighbourhood centre and to match the upgrades on the other side of Kingsgrove Road.
The proposed improvements and public domain have been designed to match the treatments used on the western side of the town centre in the upgrades undertaken by Georges River Council.
Improvements will include new decorative footpath paving on Kingsgrove Road which will replicate the paving treatment installed on the opposite side of Kingsgrove Road, additional tree planting and landscaping and new seating.
The area to by upgraded will by Shaw Street along Kingsgrove Road and part of The Avenue.
The council also decided to add Brocklehurst Lane to the original upgrade proposed works.
Works are expected to start after Easter.
