Published: 26 Nov 2020

The palm trees in the City Centre will be looking their best for Christmas.

Council will be removing dead fronds and seeds from the trees as part of a scheduled palm tree maintenance program that will start on Saturday (November 28).

Palm cleaning will be carried out over two weeks between 5am and 9am on weekdays and weekends on Victoria, Wood, Macalister and Nelson streets, as well as Mangrove Road and Matsuura Drive.

Palm cleaning on Sydney Street will be completed on Sunday, December 6, and will take most of the morning to complete.

Full traffic control will be in place and some road/lane closures will be required during the work.

Residents are asked to obey all instructions from council staff and traffic control officers.

The work is part of the annual maintenance program in the City Centre.
