SHERIDAN-WEST STREET INTERSECTION – INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council staff, in consultation with the Roads and Maritime Services, NSW Police, and CGRC Traffic Committee have been reviewing intersection design options for the Sheridan-West Street intersection.

The original plan to install a round-about at the intersection has been discarded after an extensive review of three round-about options. These options did not provide sufficient area to allow for efficient B-Double movements through the intersection.

The final recommendation involves a conventional channelized intersection. The concept should satisfy most concern with regard to traffic incidents involving speeding and other traffic related matters.

The concept and plan is now on display for public comment and viewing until Tuesday 30 October 2018.

The proposed concept will attempt to reduce vehicle speeds from the Hume highway off ramp, provide greater visibility for vehicles turning into and from West Street. A stop sign will be installed on the Nangus Road intersection leg to provide a level of safety and give greater priority to the vehicles on the other three remaining intersection legs.

CGRC is inviting interested members of the public to view the proposed concept and make relevant comments. The concept can be viewed on the CGRC website or by visiting Council Offices.

Your input is important to us, for more information contact Project Engineer Tim Morris on 0427 273 169 directly.

CARBERRY PARK ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND

Adventure Playground comments welcomed.

The concept plans for Gundagai’s large scale adventure playground are now on public display at the Gundagai Library, Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council administration office and CGRC website. The preferred site in Carberry Park for the $1 million playground is expected to provide locals and tourists with picnic areas, play zones catering for toddlers, juniors and senior aged children.

Council will receive written submissions from interested community members on the proposal up until Friday 9th March.

The adventure park will promote a family friendly environmentally safe space, encourage strong community spirit and opportunities for all to engage in healthy and active lifestyle choices. It will also encourage tourists and visitors to stay a little longer in Gundagai, and spend time shopping and eating in Gundagai’s CBD, Sheridan Street.

The proposed plans also include landscaping, a bandstand, fitness zones and increased parking spaces. Pleasant pedestrian zones, shelter structures and improvements to the amenities block also make up the concept of how the area will look and feel.

The Delivery Program details the activities the Council will undertake to achieve the objectives of the Community Strategic Plan over the four year term of the Council.

The Operational Plan is a sub‐plan of the Delivery Program which directly addresses the actions outlined in the Delivery Program and identifies projects, programs and activities that Council will be undertaking within the next financial year and is supported by a detailed budget, as well as a Revenue Policy & Council’s Fees and Charges.

Council prepares Progress Reports every six months, to keep track of activities being delivered within the planned timeframes and budgets.
