Station Street Upgrade and Extension of Railway Parade

 
Following extensive community consultation, in 2012 Council adopted the Bowral Parking, Traffic and Transport Strategy which outlined a major upgrade of Station Street (Stage 1)and extension of Railway Parade (Stage 2) to address the long term issue of traffic congestion within the town centre.


Having obtained grants for Stage 1, Council is embarking on the upgrade of Station Street to include two lanes in each direction (between Bundaroo Street and Bowral Street), new roundabout at Bong Bong Street and an upgraded roundabout at Bowral Street plus improved parking facilities and access to town centre businesses.


Widespread community consultation regarding detailed concept designs for the Station Street Upgrade was conducted in 2017 and engagement with property owners continues.
Property owners, businesses and the broader community will be informed as the project progresses.


Council continues to seek funding opportunities for Stage 2.

 Berrima Road Deviation

Preliminary designs for the Berrima Road Deviation Project were placed on public exhibition in 2017 and construction commenced in January 2018.


The aim of the project is to divert Berrima Road from the existing level crossing near the Boral Cement Works to a bridge over the train line further east.


The existing T-junction intersection at Berrima Road and Taylor Avenue and the bend on the approach to the crossing from Moss Vale would also be removed from the route - replaced with a B-triple truck capacity roundabout.


Work halted following project delivery and funding challenges. Council resolved on 10 April 2019:

  • THAT Council undertake the necessary works to make the project “shovel ready” for future grant applications. This will include finalising the relocation of existing services, property acquisitions and topsoil and seed the constructed road embankment with an estimated total cost $4.4M for the revised project scope.
  • THAT Council advise the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities that due to a significant number of issues Council will not be able to complete the approved works by the 31 March 2020 deadline and will therefore have to let the funding agreement lapse.
