Bradley Street reopens to traffic

Guyra's Bradley Street reopened to traffic on Tuesday 22 June after the installation of a temporary seal was completed, bringing Stage Two of the $2.7 million reconstruction and upgrade of Guyra’s main street a step closer to completion.

Additional works will need to completed later this year/early 2022 to install the permanent asphalt, as the process requires warmer weather. The community and affected businesses will be notified before this work begins.

Council is currently working with energy distributor, Essential Energy, to finalise plans to replace the overhead powerlines in Bradley Street. These works will formalise mains connections to premises and open the way for future improvements to shopfront awnings by the premises owners. These improvements are a key step in Council’s Central Business District overhaul. 

Stage Two of Guyra's main street upgrade is a $450,000 project and has been jointly funded by the NSW Roads to Recovery Program and merger funding.

Stage Three of the project will comprise of road rehabilitation and footpath resurfacing between Ollera and Nincoola Streets, for completion in 2022.
