Work will get underway shortly to boost the Mascot Station precinct by creating a pedestrian plaza right at the station. What we will be doing is closing Laycock Street, which runs between Coward Street and John Street and creating a landscaped pedestrian open space.
Instead of a bitumen street what we’ll have is a paved urban open space dotted with planter beds, lighting and street furniture. Advanced paperbarks, native grasses and shrubs will soften this area and increase the ambience of the Mascot Station precinct, an area of growing popularity in our City with its new residents, cafes and the mixture of residential and commercial development. I love going down to this new and vibrant part of our City.
