The first sod has been officially turned on a new multi-million-dollar shopping centre development in Bellmere.

When finished there will be almost 5300sq m of retail space with a Woolworths Supermarket, 15 tenancies including a pharmacy, cafe and alfresco dining, a children’s playground and greenery and close to 250 car spaces.

Bellmere Woolworths, being built at 110 Bellmere Rd, will bring 80 jobs during construction and around 175 jobs when it opens in mid-2023.

Woolworths will also do road upgrades by converting a major roundabout into an intersection and widening to four lanes.
