Main St Raised Pedestrian Crossing
This week work on Main Street at Cook St is being completed. This involves the completion of the Raised Pedestrian Crossing and the surrounding footpaths. This will allow Main Street to return to two-way operation on the morning of Saturday 17 March 2018. Next week work shifts to the Australia Post loading dock area at the rear of the plaza.
Eskbank St Square
This week work has commenced on the footpath area in front of the ANZ Bank at the corner of the intersection. The remaining work on the South side of the intersection involves the replacement of the footpath in front of the Grand Central Hotel and the construction of the concrete road. Following the completion of this work Eskbank Street will be reopened between Main St and the lane and will be closed between Main St and Railway Parade.
Lithgow City Council has been applying for funding to assist with the implementation of Stage 2 of the Revitalisation project. This project is in an early concept stage and is subject to changes. Input from stakeholders will be sought prior to and during the detailed design stage.
Presently the intended scope is for the replacement of footpath pavers from Cook Street Plaza to Bridge Street, the redevelopment of Pioneer Park and the initial stage in the creation of Bridge St Square.
