Road and Drainage works, Old South Road Bowral

20 February, 2018

Wingecarribee Shire Council wishes to advise that drainage and road construction works are scheduled to commence between Bowral and Merrigang Streets on Old South Road, Bowral from Monday 5 March 2018.

Initial works will involve an upgrade and replacement of the existing storm water drainage culvert, installation of kerb and guttering and drainage to improve water flow within the area. Further elements of the project will include road rehabilitation, widening and asphalt sealing.

Intersection Improvement works will take place at Old South Road and Bowral Street where one Cabbage Gum (Eucalyptus amplifolia) tree will be removed for safety purposes. The Cabbage Gum will be replaced with a large native tree and 10 tube stock plantings.

Due to the nature of the work and to allow the works to proceed safely with a minimum of disruptions, Old South Road will be reduced to one lane under traffic control.

Road users are cautioned to follow the changed traffic conditions, exercise care when traveling through the work zones and be aware of loose stones and heavy machinery within the work areas.

Council thanks motorists in advance for their cooperation and apologises for any temporary delays or inconvenience.

Works are expected to be complete by late June 2018. All timeframes are subject to weather conditions.
