Following on from Station Street renewal works, the time has come to prune dead branches from the heritage Pin Oak trees that were retained. Essential for the health of the trees and to prevent potential hazards for road users, the works will be undertaken along Mittagong Road and on Station Street in Bowral from 31 October.
Some traffic delays may be experienced while works are in progress. Weather permitting, we’ll be working on the trees along Mittagong Road between Bong Bong Street and Cliff Street Bowral for three days from October 31. Then on trees between Bong Bong Street and Merrigang Street in Bowral for three days from November 7.
“Pruning will increase the height of the trees within the travel lane and the shoulder along Mittagong Road to allow safe access for larger vehicles,” says Council’s Team Leader Tree Management, Charlene Ferguson.
Council and our Contractor have been approved for a Road Occupancy Licence between 9am and 3pm on these days and traffic controllers will be in place to manage traffic flow and minimise delays.
The tree maintenance works commencing November 7 are planned for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This will require the south bound lane onto Station Street to be diverted onto Bong Bong Street, with Stop/Slow traffic controllers directing North bound traffic.
Please take extra care when travelling through these areas at these times.
Council appreciates the understanding of community members as we undertake these essential maintenance works on our Shire’s trees. If you have any questions please contact:
