Current works

Completion timeframes of current works are subject to weather conditions.

We will make every effort to minimise disruptions to traffic, parking and pedestrians during work times.

To help work run as smoothly as possible, we ask pedestrians and motorists to follow any signage and traffic control measures.

Batemans Bay Streetscaping Stage 2 (Orient Street)

Work: Stage 2 of the streetscaping works along Orient Street, from Beach Road to North Street.

Timeframe: 26 April 2017 to September 2017.

These works include replacing kerb and guttering, repaving of the footpath starting from the intersection with Beach Road and upgrading of water mains.

We will also be landscaping; installing new street trees with fairy lights, groundcovers and decorative totems.

Lane closures will likely cause traffic delays and loss of parking spaces in Orient Street. Motorists in Orient Street Batemans Bay should look out for changed road conditions from Friday 16 June when the new raised pedestrian crossing opens to traffic.

Works may be performed on weekends, early mornings and at night. Access to sections of footpath will be restricted while works are underway.
