Negotiations are continuing between the Upper Lachlan Shire Council and Roads and Maritime Services which will lead to the construction of the new Kiamma Creek bridge.

 

Council's Acting General Manager, Andrew Croke says a request has been made of RMS to upgrade the intersection of Goulburn street and Laggan road in conjunction with the bridge replacement.

 

Council is waiting for a resolution to these talks which is hoped for shortly.

 

Mr Croke says all preliminary work including designs, geotechnical reports and tender documentation is complete.

 

Work at the intersection of Goulburn street and Laggan road is seen as making the million dollar construction of the new two-lane concrete bridge, more complete.

The Orphans Garden in Goulburn's Victoria park will be preserved and protected when the development of the Shibetsu garden takes place.

 

The Orphans memorial includes a bench seat, plinth and plaque and is located within the planned space for the Japanese garden project.

 

Initial design for the new garden had not factored in the Orphans memorial, but now plans will be re-visited to ensure its retention.

 

Mayor, Bob Kirk says he is thankful to Mr James Luthy OAM who was instrumental in establishing the Orphan's structure and who called attention to the possible conflict.

 

Councillor Kirk says all elements of the Orphan's garden will be retained and either incorporated within the Shibetsu garden or placed in a new prominent spot within Victoria park.

 

The memorial recognises orphanages as an important part of Goulburn's history.
