Cowra community invited to learn more about the $2.5 million Kendal Street Upgrade to start in January

21 November 2014

Nationals Member for Burrinjuck, Katrina Hodgkinson announced that the NSW Government has progressed plans for the upgrade of Cowra’s main street and invites the community to learn more about the project at a drop in session on
11 December 2014.

Katrina said the $2.5 million project to improve the road surface on Kendal Street would be a staged project to reduce the impact on road users and the Cowra community.

“In August, the NSW Government provided interested members of the community with an overview of the proposed work,” Katrina said.

“A drop-in session will be held from 4pm to 7pm on Thursday 11 December in the public meeting room of Cowra Shire Council to provide further opportunity for the community to speak with the project team about the work.

“Work is scheduled to start on 19 January next year to rebuild an 800 metre section of the Mid-Western Highway, also known as Kendal Street, between Lachlan and Darling streets.

“The work will be staged block by block to reduce the impact on the business district and shoppers of Cowra. This will also ensure the safety of road users and workers.”

Work will be carried out on weekdays and Saturdays from 6am to 6pm and on Sundays from 9am to 5pm.

During work there will be a detour in place to divert through traffic and heavy vehicles onto Fitzroy, Vaux and Lachlan streets.

Katrina thanks the community for their patience during the upgrade work which is due for completion in early May next year, weather permitting.
