Work on Stage 2 of the Connectivity Improvements to the Port of Eden project - the Imlay Street and Albert Terrace upgrade - will begin on Monday 15 February 2021, with initial work to include relocating the stone retaining wall at the top of Albert Terrace and realignment of the kerb and gutter adjacent the police station. There will be minimal traffic disruption for this stage.
The project includes improvements to the intersection of Imlay Street and Albert Terrace, construction of a shared path on the eastern side of Albert Terrace, revitalised public space on the south east side of the Albert Terrace and Museum Street intersection, and the renewal and upgrade of existing infrastructure including pavements and kerbs.
This stage of the Connectivity Improvements to the Port of Eden project is funded by the NSW and Australian governments.
Bega Valley Shire Mayor, Russell Fitzpatrick said the project was much anticipated and a very necessary improvement to vehicle access to the area and pedestrian enjoyment.
“The upgrade to this part of Eden has been long-awaited and it’s great to be making a start on what will be a significant and valuable enhancement to the corridor connecting the township with the port.”
The Imlay Street and Albert Terrace upgrade project is expected to be completed in six months, weather permitting. Work will be undertaken in stages to reduce the inconvenience for road users, residents and businesses.
Cr Fitzpatrick said Council and its contractor, John Michelin and Son will continue to keep the community informed about each stage of the project and the impact on pedestrians and traffic as it unfolds.
“Regular drop-in sessions are being planned and information bulletins and works notices will be regularly shared.
“It’s very important we keep the community informed of progress and any disruptions and inconvenience they will experience.”
