Kerr Road upgrade to enter 3rd stage

Border based company, Excell Gray Bruni, has been awarded a $1.8M contract to continue a major upgrade of Kerr Road in Thurgoona.

The company was one of four that tendered for the Stage Three works, with Council basing its decision on cost, experience, resources and management systems. Excell Gray Bruni was previously awarded the contract for Stage One and Two.

Mayor, Kevin Mack says 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.

"This upgrade is not only meeting current demands, but will address the future needs of a growing community," Cr Mack said.

Stage One of the reconstruction involved re-aligning the Kerr Road/Riverina Highway intersection while the second stage centred on the section of Kerr Road between Knoble Road and Thurgoona Drive.

Stage 3 will see work continue to Pickworth Street in Thurgoona and includes new pavement, kerb and guttering, drainage, retaining walls, pathways and landscaping.
