River Street Upgrade - Stage 4
Council has begun working on the next stage of the River Street upgrade, between Moon Street and Grant Street.
The $2.7 million works include widening and paving of the footpaths, reconstruction of the road pavement, planting of street trees and landscaping, stormwater, lighting improvements, undergrounding of the electricity on the southern side of River Street. Works have now commenced and are expected to be completed late 2019.
This upgrade will be consistent with other River Street stages previously completed by Council.
To minimise inconveniences the footpath works will be undertaken at night to ensure access to all businesses will be restored during the day. Council understands that this work will cause inconveniences during construction and will endeavour to minimise disruptions.
As the much-needed upgrade of River Street is underway, the River Street traders will still be operating and include a wide array of retailers, eateries and services.
