Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) is currently undertaking an upgrade of the Otway and Sheridan Street intersection in Gundagai. The upgrade will replace the damaged kerb and gutter and pavement. The intersection will be in keeping with the Sheridan Street beautification, with the installation of garden beds and landscaping of the kerb sections.
The design phase has identified that trees within the upgrade area will need to be removed due to disease, pest infestation and have caused damage to the existing pavements and kerb and guttering. The existing trees have been categorised as a potential high risk safety hazard to pedestrians, vehicles, and infrastructure. New trees that are more suitable for the surrounding environment will be planted in the new area. As part of the redevelopment of this area, staff will create new garden beds and plant appropriate mature trees in accordance with the Gundagai Street Tree Master Plan.
