Work to upgrade pedestrian and vehicle access to the Port of Eden is about to begin on Imlay Street to relocate the stone retaining wall at the top of Albert Terrace and realign the kerb and gutter adjacent to the police station. There will be minimal traffic disruption for this stage.

The project includes improvements to the intersection of Imlay Street and Albert Terrace; construction of a shared path on the eastern side of Albert Terrace; revitalised public space on the southeast side of the intersection of Albert Terrace and Museum Street; and the renewal and upgrade of existing infrastructure, including pavements and kerbs.

“The upgrade to this part of Eden has been long-awaited and it’s great to be making a start on what will be a significant and valuable enhancement to the corridor connecting the township with the port,” said Bega Valley Shire Council Mayor Russell Fitzpatrick.

The Imlay Street and Albert Terrace upgrade project is expected to be completed in six months, weather permitting. Work will be undertaken in stages to reduce the inconvenience for road users, residents and businesses.

More information about Connectivity Improvements to the Port of Eden project can be found on Bega Valley Shire Council’s website.
