The next stage of the Merimbula bypass works are scheduled to start in October with the construction of two sealed carpark areas.
The open stormwater drainage line running alongside Park Street, between Wonga Street and Kyeamba Street is to be piped and filled as part of these works, to create an interim carpark and to allow for the future bypass road alignment. Several trees within the drainage line reserve will be removed as part of these works.
At the same time the informal public carpark located behind the South Seas Motel and Town Centre Motor Inn is to be reconstructed as a formal sealed carpark.
Carpark works will commence on 6 October 2015, after the long weekend, and weather permitting the works will be completed by the end of November 2015.
Realignment and upgrade works for Park Street will commence during the off-peak tourist season in 2016.
The Merimbula CBD Bypass Project will reduce traffic congestion within the Merimbula CBD and improve through-traffic movement.
Local residents and businesses have been informed of the works.
