Streetscape upgrade between Worrigee St and Junction Street.
Streetscape upgrade of Berry Street between Worrigee St & Junction Street.
This project will modernise the streetscape (footpath and plants) while removing uneven ground and providing safer road crossing options.
Access to shops will be maintained throughout the construction process.
The north bound traffic lane between Worrigee St & Junction Street will be closed to through traffic, detours will be in place.
A drop off/pick up area has been established for the Standish Medical Centre.
The existing London Plain Trees will need to be removed as part of the streetscape upgrade works. The plan was to retain the trees as part of the streetscape upgrade works however upon removal of the existing concrete path it is apparent the root system is too shallow and large to be compatible with an urban streetscape. The roots have caused damage to the footpath and underground services. In consultation with the Nowra CBD Revitalisation Strategy Committee the decision has been made to remove the trees. The London Plain will be replaced with Ornamental Pear Trees within a tree management system to prevent any damage to adjoining infrastructure in the future.
