Kiewa Street Upgrade
We’re completed important works in Kiewa Street to create a new road surface and significantly reduce drainage problems along the roadway.
The works, between Guinea Street and Bungambrawatha Creek, include the resealing of the road surface, new kerbs and gutters, upgrades to the existing bus bay, improvements to storm water management and the construction of new driveways and footpaths.
In order for the work to proceed, five street trees between Crisp Street and Bungambrawatha Creek were removed.They will be replaced by five super-advanced English elms, about five metres tall. These elms will complement the grand avenue of stately English elms outside Albury High School.
Importantly, the avenue of elms will be fully retained with some minor remediation works to ensure they remain healthy and safe. An arborist’s report has found the elms are in good condition.
The works required road closures outside Albury High School and we appreciate the patience of the school community while a better and safer road was built.
