New welcome coming for town visitors
Published on 12 November 2019
Visitors and residents to Deniliquin will be welcomed by a new and improved southern town entrance at Crispe St as works continue under the Drought Communities Programme over the coming weeks.
Works to beautify the area will include tree planting, irrigation of the parkland and landscaping.
In addition, the project will also highlight the intersection as a key entry point into the town. The iconic “Deniliquin” sign, currently positioned on the highway at the eastern entry point to town, will be relocated to the Crispe Street intersection and further landscaping works and lighting of the sign will take place.
Edward River Council Mayor Norm Brennan said the project will improve the entry into Deniliquin as well as encourage visitors to enter town via Crispe Street.
“Many travellers do not use the Crispe Street entry into Deniliquin as it is a low-profile entry into town, there is limited signage and it is an area needing beautification,” Cr Brennan said.
“This project will enable a more attractive entry point and improved signage to encourage visitors to access the town centre on their journey through Deniliquin.”
Works are scheduled to commence in November.
The landscaping and sign relocation will take around five weeks, while the irrigation installation works and tree planting are scheduled to be completed in early 2020.
The contractors working on this project are Barnett Deniliquin, G & K Kennaugh Earthmoving from Echuca and T Maher from Deniliquin.
The contractors appointed to clear the site are Murray Constructions of Deniliquin.
