  • Waverley Council appoints head contractor for $1.8M Seven Ways Project

    about 1 month ago

    Waverley Council has appointed Hibernian Contracting Pty Ltd as head contractor for the $1.8 million Seven Ways Streetscape Upgrade project in Bondi.

    Located at the intersection of Glenayr Avenue, Warners Avenue and Blair Street, Seven Ways is a local village centre serving the Bondi community.

    Waverley Mayor, Councillor John Wakefield, said the Seven Ways precinct is the closest open space for many North Bondi residents and has the potential for far greater use than currently experienced.

    “Our project will enhance the amenity and quality of the public domain, plaza, green space and streetscape at Seven Ways to support local businesses and residents’ social and open space needs,” Councillor Wakefield said.

    “It will be an attractive and relaxing place for locals to enjoy.”

    During the exhibition period of community consultation, 142 surveys were received with more than 90 per cent of respondents living in the local Bondi and North Bondi areas.

    The project will be delivered in stages. It is anticipated the first stage will be completed by December this year, with the second stage delivered following completion of stage 1 and an anticipated completion date of March 2020.

    Hibernian Contracting won a competitive tender from five other conforming tenderers.

    Among Hibernian Contracting’s projects of note is the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk landslip remediation works, reinstatement of coastal walk and landscaping at Waverley Cemetery, also undertaken for Council.

  • Seven Ways - Consultation results and next steps

    4 months ago

    Seven Ways consultation is now complete and the project had overwhelming support from those who participated.

    Survey results

    Overview: 142 surveys were received during the exhibition period with over 90% of respondents drawing from the local Bondi and North Bondi areas.

    Over 90% of participants in the survey advised they liked the concept design with the main reasons being: the creation of usable space for the community, the look of the finishes and the design concept, and the creation of more green space with additional plantings and trees.

    Main themes: Participants expressed opinions that the upgrade represents a good investment and pedestrianising Warners Lane is a positive outcome for the area. These views mirrored those expressed during an intercept survey at Seven Ways Village in late 2017.

    The top issues raised were concerns around traffic, safety, pedestrians, buses and cyclists with suggestions to review the current traffic, road and safety arrangements.

    Survey respondents made many suggestions for items that could be included in the design like public art, more play spaces, amenities like a bubbler, dog poles (to tie dogs to), bins and lighting, safety devices like a fence and design elements like natural finishes and flowers.

    Survey respondents were also keen to see the space continue to be activated with things like performances, markets and art.

    Next steps: The items suggested by the community will be assessed to see how or if they can be incorporated into the final design.

    Council will also prepare tender documentation and engage a head contractor to deliver the project. It is anticipated the project will be completed by the end of November.
