Clyde St works to prepare for bridge opening

8 March 2021

Eurobodalla Council began improving parking and pedestrian safety in Clyde Street this week to prepare for the opening of the new Batemans Bay Bridge before Easter.

The work, between North Street and the T-wharf car park entrance, will involve reconfiguring parking spaces from 45-degree angle parks to 90 degrees.

The change accommodates new traffic arrangements for the Batemans Bay Bridge and will result in an extra nine parking places.

Two raised pedestrian crossings will also be installed on Clyde Street: one near the picnic shelter and another adjacent to the public toilets.

The crossings will help reduce the speed of passing traffic and provide safer passage for pedestrians and vehicles entering and exiting the car park.

During the work Clyde Street will operate under traffic control between the Princes Highway and North Street.

Council will also undertake night works to ensure the project is complete by the Easter school holidays.

Parking will not be available within the construction site while the works are underway. The path along the foreshore will also be closed.
