Shoalhaven City Council is advising local residents of a number of road closures due to the Waratah March re-enactment taking place on Sunday 29 November.
The Waratah March is a Centenary of Anzac event that endeavours to re-enact and commemorate elements of the original recruitment march that travelled from Nowra to Sydney in 1915.
The March was one of a number of recruitment marches held around the State after the failed Gallipoli Campaign.
As a result of the re-enactment a number of roads will be closed within Nowra and Bomaderry and the Princes Highway between 9am and 11am on the day.
These include -
Junction Street, Berry Street, and Bridge Road will be closed from 8am.
These roads will be progressively re-opened to traffic following the completion of ceremonies at 10am.
The original eastern Nowra Bridge will be closed to traffic between 9am and 10.30am.
During this time a traffic contra-flow will be in place on the western Nowra Bridge allowing one lane to travel in each direction on the northbound carriageway of the Princes Highway.
This traffic arrangement is necessary to allow a photo re-enactment on the Old Nowra Bridge.
Bolong Road will be closed from 9am and be reopened by 11.30am as the March progresses to Bomaderry Train Station.
Local residents are asked to consider the road closures when panning movements on the day.
