Mayor Khal Asfour said, moving forward, Council has started on its record $90.1 million 2018-19 Capital Works program.
"We did some fantastic work in the community in 2017-18 and I’m really excited to see the 2018-19 program being delivered," he said.
"These projects are part of our journey of meeting the community’s 10-year aspirations, outlined in the cbcity2028 community strategic plan, which involved the thoughts of more than 10,000 residents who took part in surveys, workshops and discussions.
"I encourage residents to visit cb.city/councilprojectsto see the work being completed across the City, using our new online interactive map.
"The $31 million we’re investing in roads, $3.9 million on footpaths and boardwalks, $8.1 million on parks and recreation and much more, shows our continued commitment to further improving CBCity," he said.
