Nowra CBD works

Council to complete further road rehabilitation works within the Nowra CBD


Shoalhaven City Council will be completing a number of road rehabilitation projects within Nowra over the coming weeks.


Council has undertaken a number of projects in the CBD over the previous year including the Berry Street Footpath, Jelly Bean Park, Thorough_Fair laneway and Junction Street painting works as part of the revitalisation of the Nowra CBD.


The upcoming works will see existing pavers replaced with asphalt at both the Junction/Berry Street and Junction/Kinghorne Street intersections.


Mayor, Joanna Gash said she was very pleased to see works continuing to take place in the Nowra CBD.


“While it has only been nine months since the commencement of the Nowra Alive project we have seen a lot of major improvements take place in the CBD over that time,” said Clr Gash.


“The upcoming works on the Junction Street intersections will form another key step in the revitalisation of the CBD.


“To maintain the importance of these intersections as part of the pedestrian link through the CBD, the new surface will be stamped with a paver pattern.”


“Most importantly the new surface will improve the surface condition particularly for pedestrians.”


Council will also be replacing road pavement between Wallace and Stuart Streets on Kalandar Street.


Both projects are scheduled to commence on Sunday 21 June and are expected to be completed by Friday 26 June, weather permitting.


To minimise delays, the work will be undertaken at night between 7pm and 6am.


Detours will be in place to direct traffic around these locations during work periods.


The roads will be open during the day although drivers and pedestrians are reminded to respond to the conditions and follow signage.


Works are currently in progress in Kinghorne Street between Kalandar Street and St Anns Street.


This road is currently closed to traffic except for residents.CONTACT: Mayor, Joanna Gash - 0427 160 170
