October 2021 update
Machinery and materials will be delivered to site commencing Monday 18 October 2021. This should mean that the traffic diversion around the existing bridge should be in place before the end of the week.
Please drive with extra care around this work-site and obey all of the warning signs, including any portable traffic lights, as well as any instructions given by the traffic controllers.
Culverts have been delivered to the Back Creek Site. These culverts will replace the existing timber bridge.
Sediment fencing installed to reduce the amount of silt from entering the Back Creek waterway during construction.
The by-pass pipe has been installed to allow for the on-going flow of the creek onto the Murrumbidgee River.
August 2021 update
Council's project team met with the NSW Department of Primary Industries - Fisheries last month and the Fisheries Permit for the Back Creek portion has now been approved.
The review of the Review of Environmental Factors by the Public Works Advisory is nearing completion, with an expected completion date of mid-August 2021.
Assuming all documents are accepted, work is planned to commence from mid-September 2021.
For more information please contact the project manager, Graham Hope

June 2021 update
Council had a meeting with the NSW Department of Primary Industries - Fisheries on Thursday 1 July, to discuss the permit requirements, and this is progressing well, and should be finalised shortly.
The review of the REF by PWA is also well underway, and Council is expecting a resolution of all outstanding issues shortly.
These problems are frustrating, but sorting them before construction ensures all parties are aware of any restrictions, and limits Councils liability.
Once sorted, delays with the remainder of the project will be minimised.
