MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 19, 2009 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au High streets' facelift FIONA BRADY Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy and Lowe MP John Murphy walk along Hennessy St (above) and how the area will look (left). Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~P0632882 Do you know of other areas that need a facelift? Tell us online at www.innerwest.weekly.com.au GOOD news for residents of Croydon North -- your suburb is getting a $251,000 facelift. The money will be used to upgrade the business and shop- ping precincts on Elizabeth and Hennessy streets and Edwin Street North. The work will include footpath widening, traffic calming measures, landscaping and in- creased on-street parking. The funding, which is coming from the Federal Government's Community Infrastructure Program, was announced by Fed- eral Labor MPs Anthony Albanese and John Murphy recently. ''Anyone who lives around Croydon and Ashfield can see the importance of this project,'' Mr Murphy said. ''The shopping and business precinct in Croydon North is in urgent need of an overhaul.'' Mr Murphy said Ashfield Coun- cil had been developing the streetscaping plan since 2007 and had carried out a lengthy com- munity and stakeholder consul- tation to arrive at the design options. ''Investing in local projects like this is a great way to generate construction activity and provide much-needed infrastructure to lo- cal communities,'' Mr Murphy said. Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy said the council had nominated Croydon North for the federal funding because it was the area in greatest need. Preliminary works will begin shortly. Fun day out suits families to a tea TEA aficionados have been in- vited to Bay Day -- a free festival celebrating tea -- at McIIwaine Park, Rhodes, on Sunday, March 29, from noon to 4pm.

''The geotechnical investi- gations will help establish the rock level and help the design for the proposed new bridge across Iron Cove,'' a spokesman said. ''This is part of the planning process and does not involve con- struction. A specialist drilling rig will be mounted on a barge to drill up to five boreholes underwater into the bed of Iron Cove. ''A compressor will be used to operate the rig and will be located on the shore in front of the original abutment in Rozelle.'' The work is expected to finish this week. MASSIVE SAVINGS!!!
