#1. Arundel Street
The ‘contained portal’ option in Arundel St threatened by WestConnex has been ditched to the vast relief of Glebe residents. It also means that the beautiful heritage-listed retaining wall which extends along Parramatta Rd from the Chapman Steps to Derwent St will remain undisturbed and intact.

#2. Forest Lodge Public School
We understand that the repair of the sandstone retaining wall at Forest Lodge, blighted by a ham-fisted attempt at rectification, will be assessed for funding under the Department’s ‘10 year Schools Stonework Program’.
