We have been notified by Piety THP of works at 23 Bennelong Parkway as follows:
Installation of footbridge between buildings D and E.
Tuesday 18th December 2018.
9:00am to 4:00pm ( lane closure times)
7:00am to 6:00pm (construction activity)
The mobile crane set up has been approved to be set up on part of the slip lane on Bennelong and Hill Roads, so this slip lane will be closed at the above mentioned times.
These works have already been approved by RMS/COUNCIL etc so we are kindly advising the community and local neighbours also.
Of potential interest to WP residents. Will need to investigate this further. Would be a useful service if it ran from WP to Lidcombe Station as an example.

Upcoming Community Information Session
We have been working hard to finalise the detailed design and prepare construction plans for the new 3.9ha waterfront park in Wentworth Point. Plans will soon be submitted to the City of Parramatta for approval.
We are hosting a community information session to show how community feedback has helped shape the final design and to provide an update about the works program and upcoming construction.
Subject to final approvals, works will start in December and will continue for an estimated 15-18 months.
When: Saturday 17 November 2018
Time: 11am to 1pm
Where: Main Function Room, Pulse Club, 9 The Crescent, Wentworth Point.
There is no need to RSVP. Please drop-in any time from 11am to 1pm to find out about construction and talk to the project team.
July Community information session
On Saturday 28 July, Landcom held an information session to give the community an opportunity to view the plans for the new park and give feedback to inform the detailed design.
Around 60 people attended the session. Boards with information about the park were on display and members of the project team were available to answer questions and hear feedback.
Feedback received from the community included suggestions for:
– new facilities in the park
– public art
– improving safety and security
This feedback has been used by the project team to help finalise the detailed design. Read thesummary of feedback.
Wentworth Point Public School Engagement
Earlier this year Wentworth Point Public School students completed drawings reflecting open space, active lifestyles and healthy urban communities for construction hoarding around the site.
We plan to install this hoarding in December before starting works.
Students are also currently working with our artist to help design public art for the park.

Pathway repairs planned at Haslams Creek Spiral Marker
The shared pathway at the Haslams Creek Spiral Marker on Hill Road will be closed to the public next week to allow crack sealing works to be undertaken.
The repairs will be carried between 7am and 5pm over a maximum of two days from Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 November, depending upon the weather.
The path will be reopened to the public once the works are complete.
Great to see that the charity we raised funds for at last year’s WP Ball is off and running with the Parramatta shelter! Very happy that we provided the kick off funds to make this happen.
We’re excited to launch our Facebook page for the Parramatta Women’s Shelter!
We look forward to sharing our journey with you as we set up and open the shelter in the next few months. Keep an eye out for our posts and upcoming announcements and thanks for your support 😊

Good morning WP.
Hey guys! Some of you already know me for running voluntary contribution yoga sessions on Sunday mornings. I haven’t posted on this page before but now onwards you will see reminders for Sunday sessions on Thursday/Friday. So look out this space.
I am also thinking of starting yoga sessions on one of the evening/nights in the school every week. It will be compulsory min $5/session contribution sessions and whatever contributions come in will be donated to use for school development.
Reason for my this post is before I create proposal for the school, I wanted to know which day you prefer most and what time too.
Please choose your most prefer day and time and write it in the comments below, so I can choose that time for the proposal. I am thinking one of the weekdays and 6-7 pm or 8 – 9 pm.
Hope to see your response and sharing my practice with you while helping our school. ?
P.S. Don’t hesitate to PM me if you have any questions.
