As part of the Wingewarra Street redevelopment project, Council will be commencing pavement stabilisation works from Monday 14 May, with new kerb and gutter construction to follow.

Council’s Senior Project Engineer Stephen Howlett said the major project which started in the last quarter of 2017 will renew aging infrastructure between Darling and Gipps Streets.

“The next steps in the construction include stabilisation of the pavement on the southern side of Wingewarra Street and the construction of the southern kerb and gutter. This will mean better stormwater drainage, improved pedestrian safety, improved on street parking and better amenity overall,” Mr Howlett said.

“Every effort will be made so that property access can be re-established as soon as possible with parking expected to be impacted for three (3) weeks. Access along the footpath will be maintained, and Council staff will assist pedestrians if required,” Mr Howlett said.

Parking is available on the northern side of Wingewarra Street between Darling Street & Gipps Street. Traffic flow will continue with single lane traffic operating during work hours and dual lanes coming in effect after hours. Commuters can expect minimal changes to the traffic control which is currently in place.

“In order to make these significant improvements we rely heavily on the community’s cooperation and understanding and we thank them for their cooperation so far,” Mr Howlett said.
