Orient Street parking changes


Construction of a new raised pedestrian crossing in Orient Street will disrupt parking in the Batemans Bay streetscaping construction zone from next week.

The crossing is part of Council’s $1.6 million streetscaping project and will be built near the bakery.

Council chose the raised or ‘hump’ style crossing to increase pedestrian visibility and slow traffic in the busy area.

The existing pedestrian crossing near the Post Office will remain in use until the new one is finished next month.

To retain vehicular access through Orient Street, most of the parking in the works area will be removed while the new crossing is built. Weather dependent, this could take three to four weeks. Parking will be reinstated when the crossing is complete.

By completion of the streetscaping project, Orient Street will have 59 parking spaces, up from 53 currently.

Council’s engineering team has visited shopkeepers this week to keep them updated on progress and let them know what to expect for the final stage of the project.

Construction work will continue through the July school holidays with the aim of completing the project by September.

Council continues to encourage shoppers into the work zone to visit their favourite stores and cafes while the streetscaping is underway. Media Release
