Works are ramping up


The rejuvenati­on of the Waring Gardens continues this week, with a focus on the footpath and boundary fence on Napier St in Deniliquin.

Edward River Council said both the concrete path and the timber fence have suffered damage due to wear and tear, and would be replaced.

Work started yesterday.

A new timber fence which resembles that used along the Beach to Beach walk will be constructe­d, and the pram crossing at the corner of Napier and Harrison Sts will be replaced.

Council said it would ‘‘undertake work safely’’ which will have some impact on use of those areas.

The following areas will be closed for the duration of the works.

Napier St footpath on the Waring Gardens side, between the Cenotaph and Harrison St.

Napier St crossing section of the lagoon walk.

Existing parking along the Waring Gardens side of Napier St.

Controls will be in place to direct pedestrian­s and traffic.

Also starting yesterday and continuing for at least two weeks is an upgrade to water and sewerage works at Navorina Nursing Home, at the river end of Macauley St, Deniliquin.

Mayor Norm Brennan said the work complement­s Navorina’s project to increase its capacity by 20 beds, to become a 60 bed facility.

Speed reductions will be in place for the duration of the project, as follows:

Charlotte St, between Russell and Hardinge Sts — 40km/h.

Macauley St, between George and Charlotte Sts — 40km/h.

Riverside Drive and Macauley St to Charlotte St – 20km/h.

Parking will not be allowed behind the Deniliquin Police Station on Riverside Drv.

Parking outside Navorina Nursing Home will be closed this week, but Navorina will provide three disability car park spaces at the front of the building. Pedestrian access will remain available. Council will advise if the NSW lockdown will delay works in the coming days.
