Traffic is being disrupted through Thirroul as work is carried out to beautify the village, and specifically, the Western footpath, with work expected to continue until Spring.
But it’s worth it because Council is working to make the area greener, more attractive and more functional!
They’ll upgrade the area from Beaches Hotel to the service station on the corner of Arthur Street. The works include new kerb and guttering and a new footpath surface to match the existing upgraded footpaths in Thirroul.
Council will also add in two terrazzo art work panels, trees will be planted and seats installed, along with bike racks and bins.
Work is expected to take about four months to complete.
Council has consulted with the local Neighbourhood Forum, the Thirroul Village Committee and the Seaside Arts Festival Committee to come up with the final design. Council’s Landscape Architects have also visited the local businesses to explain the plans and landscaping.
They says comments and suggestions for planting and access have been taken on board by Council when designing these works.
Work will also be completed on the pedestrian access outside the Commonwealth Bank to the IGA, making it safer for pedestrians crossing this road.
