PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE ACROSS RAIL LINE AT MOSS VALE STARTS TO TAKE SHAPE
It was a hive of activity at Moss Vale on Saturday as work on the new pedestrian bridge across the rail line at Argyle Street reached another major milestone.
Member for Goulburn, Pru Goward attended the moment the main span girder was lifted into place for the $1 million NSW Government funded structure.
“This is an exciting day for the community as it means the new bridge is a step closer to completion,” Ms Goward announced.
“The bridge will improve pedestrian and cyclist safety and better connect the north of the Moss Vale CBD with town centre, showground and extended pedestrian network.
“There is currently a road bridge with a footpath for pedestrians, but it is very narrow and uneven so this new crossing is welcome news for the community.”
Wingecarribee Shire Council is working with Roads and Maritime Services and NSW Public Works to deliver this project and the community is thanked for its patience.
“Work on the new bridge is expected to be complete by the end of June this year and the community will be kept informed,” Ms Goward added.
