Civil and subdivision works have begun on Risland Australia’s $1.5 billion Wilton Greens project, located in Sydney’s South West in the township of Wilton in Wollondilly Shire.
The project spans 433 hectares and will include 3600 land parcels with a variety of housing types. It will also feature features two employment hubs, a local neighbourhood centre, seven parks and playgrounds, several kilometres of cycle paths and 8.5 hectares of open spaces.
Civil contractor TRN Group was awarded a contract for civil infrastructure and subdivision works for the first 263 land parcels.
Risland Australia General Manager – Projects NSW Paul Irwin said it has taken several years to reach this important milestone of construction starting at Wilton Greens.
“Years have been spent working with Wollondilly Council and key stakeholders to deliver a self-contained neighbourhood that will eventually be home to over 12,000 residents,” Irwin said.

“Wilton Greens is Risland’s first major masterplanned community in New South Wales, following a successful launch three years ago for Windermere Estate located in Victoria’s Mambourin. We have partnered with many of Australia’s most respected businesses to help us deliver our vision of creating one of New South Wales’ flagship masterplanned communities.
“Hundreds of jobs are being created for local businesses before, during and after construction for this project. TRN, a local family-owned company, was chosen to deliver Stage 1 because the business has a long and successful track record in delivering large scale high-quality community projects in Western Sydney.”
Wilton Greens Sales Manager Tim Clarke said there has been huge interest early in the project with over 300 land parcels sold to date.
“Many purchasers have appreciated the unique position of Wilton Greens which provides the convenience of close proximity to community amenities, jobs and green open spaces,” Clarke said.
“The development’s direct main road access to Illawarra, the Southern Highlands and Wollongong’s beaches has made it a very appealing purchasing proposition.”
According to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, A Plan for the Wilton Growth Area, state and federal governments are planning to invest billions of dollars into the region.
