Warrick Lane redevelopment

Warrick Lane

The Warrick Lane development is part of the Blacktown City Centre transformation.

The $76.5 million Warrick Lane modern metropolitan centre will provide our business community and the people of Blacktown major economic, employment and social benefits.

Blacktown city centre will be the focal point for our vibrant community.

Our strategy is to attract engagement and investment from the NSW Government and the private sector.

The car park, public plaza, pocket park, and surrounding buildings will be completed in early 2021. 

The permanent home of the ACU Blacktown Campus will be along the northern edge of the new plaza and overlook it.

Will I be able to park in the Warrick Lane Carpark? 

Yes, the existing Warrick Lane carpark will remain open. During initial demolition (April to August 2019), the carpark will lose 10 car spaces. During main construction (August to September 2019) the carpark will lose around 50 spaces.

Will pedestrian access remain open? 

During the main works phase (September 2019 to late 2020) direct pedestrian access routes from the existing carpark to Main Street will close.

What alternative pedestrian access will there be?  

Harry House Walkway will remain open for pedestrians to access the rear of shops on the Western (rail station) side of the work site. From the existing carpark, you can walk via Sunnyholt Road around to Main Street.

Will I still be able to drive down Warrick Lane? 

Vehicle access along the one-way section of Warrick Lane will remain open for cars, with traffic control in place.

Warrick Lane re-development phase one

There is real momentum in the transformation of Blacktown CBD - the latest step forward is the completion of the first stage of demolition work in our Council’s Warrick Lane redevelopment project.

Over recent weeks, we levelled the old Blacktown Mall in Main Street and a number of adjoining shops, before removing all debris and materials. 
The final demolition work will occur in Mid-July, with the demolition of 81-83 Main Street (the buildings currently occupied by Westpac and Connect Hearing).
