WORKS on the $115 million Sydney Wet 'n' Wild theme park at Prospect are running on schedule for a December opening.
The Sun found the project's 25-hectare site on Reservoir Road cleared of all bushes, shrubs and trees last Thursday.
Some 30 workmen using tractors and bulldozers have also dug huge holes where a man-made river, wave and surf pools are to be located, as well as doing work for the construction of rides and slides.
Site manager Jason Todd said works resumed after the New Year six days a week, from 7am to 7.30pm.
He said containers of water park equipment from China and Canada would arrive this week, to be erected in April/May followed by major landscaping works in June/July.
"We expect the park — the largest in the southern hemisphere to be opened in December," he said.
"Its water park facilities are bigger and better than those at the Gold Coast."
Project director Chris Warhurst recently said the park would create a "beach" for residents in western Sydney, and an estimated 900,000 customers annually.
He said Sydney's first Wet 'n' Wild park would have 37 slides and five rides including several world firsts.
Mr Warhurst said these included the 87-metre world's tallest double Skycoaster ride and the Aqua Loop, a mat racer combination slide that hurtles riders at 60km/h.
"A 150-metre long surf pool and 70-metre long wave pool will form an artificial beach the size of Bilgola beach," he said.
The Village Roadshow project will generate 300 construction jobs, including more than 30 for Seven Hills firm, Western Earthmoving, and 300 full-time jobs when the park opens.
