Wingecarribee Shire General Manager, Jason Gordon today welcomed the re-opening of Douglas Road in Moss Vale.

“Council is committed to the sustainable long-term economic development of the Shire and the re-opening of Douglas Road is evidence of Council’s commitment to the Moss Vale Enterprise Zone,” he said.

The re-opened road has been upgraded from a sub-standard rural road to a fully kerb and guttered 11.5 metre widened industrial road. The improvements will allow sufficient provision for B-Double trucks to service the Enterprise Zone.

The General Manager also said that local road widening to 13 metres in width had been provided adjacent to future intersections to allow improved access for future truck movements.

“The remainder of the works near the eastern railway crossing will continue during September and October. In the interim, traffic will continue to have access through the worksite,” he said.

“The upgrade of Douglas Road – and the associated sewerage works – represents a $5.3M investment in the Enterprise Zone by Council.

“This is a substantial investment in the Moss Vale Enterprise Zone and confirmation that Wingecarribee Shire Council is committed to the future economic growth of this Shire.”

The Douglas Road improvement project has been developed with financial support from the NSW Government through NSW Trade and Investment and the Department of Planning.
