Singleton Main Street Upgrade
Location: Singleton, NSW
In October 2013, the NSW Government awarded a $9 million grant to Singleton Council for the revitalisation of the Singleton Town Centre under the Resources for Regions program. Council had already committed $2 million to the project to commence planning and design.
Stage one of the project extends down John St from Hunter St to Gowrie St and combines civil, electrical, architectural, landscaping and mechanical elements.
Entire Concrete supplied all the concrete and the 43m boom pump for the complete job.

- Modern street furniture, including more than 60 new benches, drinking fountains, and bike racks will also be installed.
- The street lights will be upgraded by removing the existing street lights and replacing them with modern LED type lights as well as adding dedicated lighting to the footpaths in awning areas.
- The speed limit for a section of John St will be reduced to 40km/h and dedicated parking including spaces for people with disabilities will be provided.
