A busy Bowral street is set to have significant construction works taking place over the next few months.
Wingecarribee Shire Council have announced they will begin construction on stormwater drainage improvements works and a new carpark on Station Street.
Works will include filling the existing open channel, construction of an underground stormwater drainage system and new 150-space carpark on land located west of Station Street between Bowral and Boolwey Streets.
On completion the works are intended to improve safety, deliver more efficient onsite stormwater drainage and provide additional formalised carparking with convenient access to the town centre.
While on-site vegetation will be removed prior to the start of construction all mature trees will be retained.
Works are scheduled to start in late May and conclude by September 2022.
Council will endeavour to minimise any disruption to nearby businesses and residents. Road users and pedestrians are cautioned to be aware of heavy machinery and workers in the area, follow the changed traffic conditions and to exercise care when travelling through the work zones.
Council apologises for any temporary inconvenience associated with the improvement works.
