Golf Links Estate, Croydon

Council is committed to undertaking road and drainage enhancement works, and vegetation and landscaping improvements within the Golf Links Estate, Croydon.

The works will improve the longevity of the sealed road pavement and provide flood mitigation for the adjoining properties.

The works will be undertaken in four stages, with the fourth and final stage beginning construction in January 2017.

While all the streets in the Estate will be part of the improvements, priority will be given to the upstream (or high side) roads in an effort to assist in flood mitigation.

The entire project is expected to be completed in 2017.

Summary of the works

The road works will involve the patching of deteriorated sections of the road, including the application of a new asphalt surface.

The drainage works will involve the reshaping and cleaning and/or creation of table/open drains. They will also include the renewal of some vehicle crossings to alleviate stormwater flooding issues.

Vegetation and landscaping improvements will ensure that the unique character of the Estate is retained.

Indigenous species such as Eucalypts, Acacia and Leptospermums will be retained along with many exotic species such as Birch, Liquidambar and Oaks if they are healthy enough to remain.

Weed species such as Cotoneaster, Privets, Pittosporums and Agapanthus, will be progressively removed and replaced with desirable species in keeping with the theme of the streetscape.

Stage four — construction now started

The streets within the Estate included in stage four are:

  • Leslie Street
  • Northcott Avenue; and
  • Cheeseman Street
