Beresfield's town centre is about to get a major revamp.
Newcastle City Council has unveiled plans for a $2.4 million overhaul, set to take place over the next few months.
A 3D flyover has been released showing what the future streets of Beresfield will look like, including smart lighting and Wi-Fi.
"When watching the video, you immediately notice the prominent "smart poles," which will provide smart lighting and access to Wi-Fi. Beresfield is the first local centre in Newcastle to have smart poles installed," said Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes.
Construction is to be completed in stages, with full completion of the project anticipated in the second half of this year, weather permitting.
The renewal project includes:
A 40km/h zone and pedestrian friendly street design
Road and pedestrian lighting upgrade
Lighting to the railway station
Water sensitive urban design with a rain garden
New site appropriate street trees
New public space in Beresford Avenue
New seating, bike racks and bins
New kerb, gutter and footpath
Renewed road pavement
