Cockle Creek works
As part of the establishment of the Cockle Creek Precinct, HCCDC will soon commence work on the construction of Cressy Road. Cressy Road will link Munibung Road, Boolaroo (opposite Bunnings Warehouse Exit) with the future Costco warehouse at Cockle Creek. The new intersection created between Munibung Road and Cressy Road will include traffic lights.
Cressy Road is being named in honour of Private Henry Alfred Cressy who was a resident of Creek Road Boolaroo. Henry was also a locomotive driver at Pasminco before he joined the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in World War 1. Sadly, Private Cressy lost his life on 19 July 1916 in the Battle of Fromelles.
The Cressy family were long-time residents of Boolaroo and Speers Point.
Work to construct the road is likely to commence in March 2021 and be completed in August 2021.
