Kerr Road - stage 4
Reconstruction of Kerr Road (stage 4) is due to commence in May 2018.
Kerr Road provides important access to the Thurgoona/Wirlinga growth corridor which is expected to be home to an additional 50,000 residents over the next 50 years.
Stages 1 & 2 from the Riverina Highway heading north, covering approximately 1100m, were completed in 2015.
Stage 3 up to the southern side of Pickworth St was completed in 2017.
Kerr Road forms critical infrastructure as part of council’s Local Environmental Plan (2010) and the Thurgoona/Wirlinga Precinct Structure Plan, being a key access avenue to the city’s growth area.
Ultimately, as the growth demand dictates, the road will continue on and provide access to Table Top Road, Elizabeth Mitchell Drive and the Davey Road freeway interchanges.
Stage 4 commences at the conclusion of Stage 3, heading north, and concludes approximately 100m south of Stirling Way.
The scope of the works include:
- Construction of 5752m2 of new pavement;
- 870 metres of kerb and guttering;
- 230 metres of piped drainage;
- 115 metres of retaining walls;
- 115 metres of 600mm water supply pipe installation;
- 2,335m2 of paved pathways; and
- Landscaping and one passive recreation stop.
Stages 5 & 6
A further $2.6M has been allocated in council's 2018-19 draft budget to complete Kerr Rd all the way from the Riverina Highway heading north through to Thurgoona Drive, including a new roundabout at Thurgoona Drive.
