Improved access and amenity for residents and to river.

Published on 14 October 2019

Upcoming works to Harfleur St and Wyatt St will lead to improved residential amenity and visitor access to the Edward River.

The road sealing project, through the Drought Communities Programme, will improve residents experience by providing dust protection and improved access to properties.

By upgrading the roads that link directly to the Harfleur Street boat ramp, this project also ensures that the facilities provided for tourists meet their expectations and allows for larger boats to access the river. 

Edward River Council Mayor Norm Brennan said the provision of sealed roads will improve access and amenity for residents, as well as continue to attract and retain visitors to the area.

“Council has committed to a strategy of upgrading unsealed roads for this purpose, with Council funding the upgrade of Sloane Street earlier this year to benefit another key boat ramp access point,” Cr Brennan said.

Works will begin Monday 21 October and will continue for two weeks.

There were six submissions from potential contractors, with Guiney Excavations of Undera the successful candidate.
