HAWKESBURY Council has completed a number of works around the district as part of a program to seal gravelled roads, construct new footpaths and built better infrastructure.
Works completed this year as part of the Road Upgrade Program include: reconstruction of 250 metres of failing road pavement at Cornwallis Road, Cornwallis; reconstruction of road pavement at Ham Street, South Windsor; and new culvert constructed to manage stormwater and protect the road from erosion and storm damage at Wheelbarrow Ridge Road, Colo Heights.
Works completed under the Pedestrian Connection Program this year include two new footpaths at South Windsor - one on the west side of Mileham Street between Campbell and Argyle Streets, and the second on the north side of Argyle Street, between Mileham and Macquarie Streets.
Road works scheduled for the remainder of 2018 include rehabilitation work at Upper Macdonald Road and Wollombi Road, St Albans; shoulder renewal work at Grose Wold Road and Grose River Road, Grose Wold; and rehabilitation work between Wollombi Road and Wharf Street (including the eastern section at Espie Street) at St Albans.
Park upgrade works to be completed this year include upgrading existing picnic shelters at Governor Phillip Park, landscape renovation work at St Albans Park, and upgrading park furniture and play equipment at Ham Common in Clarendon.
Hawkesbury City Council is continuing its major works program over the next 12 months, which will include rehabilitating and resealing roads, upgrading local parks and sporting facilities.
