WATER-THIRSTY TURF WILL BE REPLACED

Two water-thirsty Dubbo roundabouts will soon give way to a drought-resilient landscape.

The new–look roundabouts for Cobra Street at the Wheelers Lane and Sheraton road intersections have a strong focus on water urban sensitive design principles and traffic management standards.

Drought-hardy native plants will be contrasted with a strong focus of contrasting foliage and material colours when works are completed by June.

Preparations will begin on Sunday 29 March with removal of a dead Willow Gum from Wheelers Lane roundabout. The species, native to the Northern Tablelands, has proven a poor choice for the Western Plains climate and will be replaced with a pin oak.

Council has received $30,000 from the NSW Government drought assistance package for the works.
