Proposed Young Street Plaza

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Young Street in Neutral Bay, between Military Road and Grosvenor Lane, will be temporarily closed from Monday 2 November 2020 to trial a new plaza and road closure (click here for detour map). North Sydney Council has less open space per person than every other northern Sydney council. This is an opportunity to increase public areas that the community can use.

Construction is planned to take eight weeks and the temporary plaza will be in place for three months until March 2021. The works have been scheduled to take place from Monday to Friday, 7am to 5pm.

The temporary plaza will then be in place for three months until March 2021 and the community will be able to have their say on whether they would like to see it become permanent. During initial consultation about the road closure and plaza aspects, the community had mixed views on whether they wanted it to happen. Council agreed to trial the closure to give the community an opportunity to see how it would work in practice before making a final decision.

The temporary plaza will be built out of hired fixtures and elements that can be reused elsewhere (click here to view the concept design layout).

These works are fully funded by Transport for NSW as part of the funding deed with Council for the streetscape upgrade works that complement the Northern Beaches B-Line Bus Service.
