Need to Cross Leakes Road? Look For The Little Green Man!
We think safety is important for you and the community, so we have erected a temporary pedestrian crossing on the intersection of Alcock and Leakes Road. We've also constructed a new footpath so that residents will be able to walk safely to and from Society Boulevard, Hornsby Crescent and Treadwell Street.
It's all part of Westbrook helping to bring a community together!
DFC is pleased to announce Stage 33 works were completed in May 2019 with titles and settlements in June 2019.
Kerb and pavement works are well progressed with the signalised intersections and public lighting to commence in the coming weeks. The newly constructed footpaths will provide greater connectivity to internal stages and will soon provide a link to a formalised temporary pedestrian crossing Leakes Rd at Alcock Road.
Residents and visitors to Westbrook will see it’s been a very busy few months, and it’s about to get even busier! In good news for purchasers in Stages 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40 & 41 construction works have now been completed and settlements are starting to take place.
All this means that we can look forward to seeing a LOT of new homes start to go up in the Northern Precinct over the next few months!
Exciting times for residents of the Westbrook South with the recent completion of many of the streetscapes and vast passive open space areas. With section 1 of the Forsyth Drain area to the east and Skeleton Creek reserve to the west of the precinct, residents are now enjoying both the aesthetic and amenity benefits of DFC vision.
With the northern carriageway of the Leakes Rd Duplication now well underway and due for completion by mid next year residents will also enjoy reduced travel times to the city and surrounding areas once completed.
The Westbrook South precinct has flourished with the construction of landscaping works to stages 1 and 2 reserves nearing completion. Stages 25,26,27 are currently in the final phases of construction with titles expected in October 2018.
Westbrook North precinct has developed at a significant pace with 7 stages currently under construction. Stages 35-42 including works to Forsyth drain have progressed significantly with tittles expected in quarter 1 2019. These are exciting times for the Westbrook Community.
Westbrook residents first to benefit from Leakes Road widening
Land at Truganina’s in-demand Westbrook estate is about to become even more sought after, with major upgrades to Leakes Road set to get underway in the coming months.
Running the full length of Westbrook’s Southern Precinct, Leakes Road is one of Truganina’s key thoroughfares, carrying an estimated 23,000 cars each day. And this number is only expected to increase, given the growing number of people making the move to Tarneit and Truganina – Westbrook alone is ultimately expected to be home to more than 10,500 residents.
Favourable weather conditions at Westbrook in recent months have allowed our civil contractors to make good progress.
In the estate’s southern precinct, Stages 18, 20, 23, 24, 30 and 34 are currently in the final construction phase with titles expected in mid 2018. Footpath and topsoiling works are being completed and our teams are carrying out mandatory electrical audits and following up with the relevant authorities for compliances.
Similarly, construction on Stages 25, 26 and 27 is progressing well, with titles expected in the final quarter of the year.
Construction is continuing at a cracking pace at Westbrook as our civil contractor advances work on multiple stages across the estate.
In the Southern Precinct, our Central Park and the Stage 2 Reserve are on track for completion in mid-2018. Landscaping works associated with the Forsyth Road Drainage Reserve and Skeleton Creek Water Quality Asset have commenced with a completion expected in the third quarter of 2018.
