PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE ACROSS RAIL LINE AT MOSS VALE NOW OPEN
Pedestrians in Moss Vale now have more convenient access across the rail line with completion of the new pedestrian bridge on Argyle Street.
Member for Goulburn Pru Goward said the NSW Government provided $1 million for the new pedestrian bridge and the community has watched this project progress with interest, particularly during major activity in April this year when a crane installed a girder across the rail line.
“The bridge improves pedestrian and cyclist safety and better connects the north of the Moss Vale CBD with the town centre, showground and extended pedestrian network,” Ms Goward said.
“Before the installation of the new bridge there was a road bridge with a footpath for pedestrians but it was very narrow and uneven, so this new crossing is a welcome improvement for the community.”
There are now shared paths connecting the bridge to the north east Moss Vale residential area which will not only improve connectivity for locals and tourists who choose to travel across the rail line by foot or bicycle, but will provide greater safety as the new bridge and paths are separated from vehicles.
Wingecarribee Shire Council worked with Roads and Maritime Services and NSW Public Works to deliver this project and the community is thanked for its patience.
