Council is looking to commence renewal works along Station Street in Bowral.

About the project...

Council's proposed works include construction of a new watermain, road pavement rehabilitation, kerb and gutter, footpath improvements and the inclusion of new car parking spaces.

  • Installation of a new watermain from Boolwey Street to Merringang Street.
  • The road pavement will undergo a full reconstruction.
  • The existing Trachyte Kerb will be renewed by being recut and relayed on the eastern side of Station Street (Boolwey to Wingecarribee Streets). New concrete kerb and gutter will be constructed on the west side adjacent to the Camellia Garden and around the Pin Oaks. New concrete gutter will also be constructed on the eastern side between Wingecarribee and Merrigang Streets.
  • The open channel drainage opposite Banyette Street will be piped and filled in.
  • Pedestrian safety will be improved by replacing the poor condition of the existing footpath on the eastern side of Station Street. A new footpath is to be constructed on the rail side to complete the missing link from the traffic lights at the intersection with Bong Bong Street.
  • The Camellia Garden will be restored and enhanced with works to include a site-specific maintenance plan with irrigation system. To protect the camellias, kerb and guttering will be constructed adjacent to the planting. All Pin Oaks will be retained and protected with new kerb and gutter surround. All street trees will be retained and pruned as required.
  • To enable the renewal works along Station Street, a total of nine on street parking spaces will be permanently removed. Six of these spaces were on the rail side next to the camellia plants, and three from the eastern side. The existing carpark just south of Boolwey Street on the rail side will be extended to provide approximately forty-three new car parking spaces for general all-day use. Additional off street parking spaces are proposed for the 23/24 financial year with an estimated one hundred spaces to be provided.
  • The current loading zone outside 8 Station Street is proposed to be relocated thirty metres north.

The renewal works will be staged with the following projected timelines:

  • South Station Street Drainage Improvements – April 2022
  • New watermain - May 2022
  • North Station Street Pavement and associated upgrades – August 2022
  • Car parking extension – Financial year 2022/23

For further details on these works please see the video presentation and related documents in the document library.

    MEDIA RELEASE

    19 MAY 2022

    Wingecarribee Shire Council is set to begin construction on stormwater drainage improvements works and a new carpark on Station Street in Bowral.

    Works will include filling the existing open channel, construction of an underground stormwater drainage system and new 150-space carpark on land located west of Station Street between Bowral and Boolwey Streets.

    On completion, the works will improve safety, deliver more efficient onsite stormwater drainage and provide additional formalised car parking with convenient access to the town centre.

    While onsite vegetation will be removed prior to the start of construction all mature trees will be retained.

    Works are scheduled to start in late May and conclude by September 2022.

    Council will endeavour to minimise any disruption to nearby businesses and residents.

    Road users and pedestrians are cautioned to be aware of heavy machinery and workers in the area, follow the changed traffic conditions and to exercise care when travelling through the work zones.

    Council apologises for any temporary inconvenience associated with the improvement works.

    MEDIA RELEASE

    19 APRIL 2022

    Wingecarribee Shire Council is set to commence restoration works on the Station Street Camelia Garden located within the grounds of the Bowral Train Station.

    The works are being undertaken to preserve and enhance the heritage camelia garden.

    Stage 1 of the works involves removal of non-camelia plant species, weed removal, pest spraying and pruning.

    Weather permitting, these works will begin Wednesday 27 April and are expected to be complete by Friday 30 April 2022. Car park spaces adjacent to the camellia garden beds along Station Street and within the railway car park will be temporarily unavailable from 26 April 2022. Traffic control measures will be in place along Station Street during this period.

    Access to the Bowral Train Station carpark will be restricted during the restoration works and approximately 30 car spaces will be temporarily unavailable.

    All works will all be performed under supervision from horticultural and camellia specialists, heritage consultants and drystone wall masons.

    Council thanks commuters in advance for their cooperation and apologises for any temporary inconvenience.

    Stage 2 works of the restoration project will be undertaken later in the year and will involve installation of electrical power including heritage lighting, restoration of the trachyte garden wall, irrigation installation, garden bed conditioning, planting and mulching.

    Dates for Stage 2 of the restoration works will be notified closer to the commencement of works.
