Pedestrian safety upgrade
As part of the John Stokes Square Redevelopment, traffic upgrades will be in place on Progress Drive to create a safe, pedestrian – friendly link between the Nightcliff Shops and John Stokes Square. Detailed design is currently underway and will incorporate community feedback. Further information will be made available.
New social housing
The John Stokes Redevelopment will provide 78 new social housing units for seniors and people living with disabilities. During construction, current residents will be placed in alternative housing. For further information, visit the Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development website.
Nightcliff Police Station
Local contractor, Halikos Group was awarded the contract to design and construct the Nightcliff Police Station.
Construction is currently underway and is expected to be finished in 2021.
The relocation of the Nightcliff Police Station will provide proximity and visibility to help reduce antisocial behaviour in the area and assist police in keeping the community safe.
