Byron Street upgrade on track
8 February 20021
The rejuvenation of Inverell’s Byron Street has reached the six-week milestone, with the project shifting focus this week to the southern side of the street.
Inverell Shire Council mayor Paul Harmon inspected the site recently and says the project is tracking ahead of schedule.
“I’m pleased to report works are now two weeks ahead of schedule and that’s a reflection of the lessons we have learned from the earlier renewal works in Byron and Otho Streets”.
“Council has committed to 12-hour work days and our crews are working seven days a week to complete this project within the shortest amount of time possible”.
“We now move into phase 2 of the works, which means from Friday, 12 February, the northern side of Byron Street in front of ANZ Bank will be open to traffic and also parallel parking will be available”.
“In contrast, the southern side of Byron Street, in front of the Australian Hotel, will be closed to traffic, however, the footpath will remain open”.
Cr Harmon paid thanks to Byron Street businesses for their patience while the program has been taking place.
“Our staff are undertaking regular visits to businesses in the works zone to provide updates and also listen to their feedback”.
The project is set to be completed following Easter, when all eight centre median Pin Oak trees will be planted.
