Lithgow City Council is seeking community feedback on the second stage of the Main Street Renewal program.

Lithgow Mayor Maree Statham said, “This is an important project which will continue to revitalise Lithgow’s historic CBD creating new opportunities for trade and tourism within our area.”

The Stage 2 of this project will see the current pavers and kerb replaced between Cook Street and Bridge Street with a new textured concrete surface interspersed with heritage brick banding and bluestone edging.

“The project emphasises pedestrian thoroughfare and walkability” said Jonathon Edgecombe, Director Infrastructure & Economy “Council has heard the community regarding concerns over the poor state of the current pavers.”

A study was performed to evaluate the performance of different surfaces for the Main Street footpath. This study compared bluestone pavers to concrete. The study concluded that concrete outperformed the bluestone pavers in slip resistance and durability.”

The works are part of an ongoing series of projects in Lithgow Council’s Lithgow CBD Revitalisation Action Plan, which is available on the Council’s website.

The Council has also prepared a list of frequently asked questions about the project which accompany the concept plan. The concept plan is available for the public to review and comment on through the Projects page on the Council’s website:

The community feedback period will run until 15 March and residents can make comment on the proposal in writing via:
