PEDESTRIAN SAFETY TO BE IMPROVED AT MOSS VALE
Member for Goulburn Pru Goward has announced safety will be improved for pedestrians and cyclists at Moss Vale with a new pedestrian bridge to be built across the rail line at Argyle Street.
Ms Goward said the NSW Government has provided Wingecarribee Council with $1 million to complete the project.
“Roads and Maritime Services has been working with Wingecarribee Council on this proposal for some time and I’m pleased to announce Council has been provided funds to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety at this location,” Ms Goward said.
“As well as improving safety, the new bridge will provide for pedestrian and cyclist connectivity for residents north of the Moss Vale CBD to the town centre, showground and extended pedestrian network in Moss Vale.
“The existing road bridge does have a footpath for pedestrians but is very narrow with an uneven surface.
“The new standalone structure will be a shared pathway and improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists alike.
“Wingecarribee Council will be responsible for managing the project and associated traffic impact.
“Work is scheduled to be complete by the end of June 2018.”
