THE new roundabout on the Narooma Flat and the surrounding streetscape continues to take shape transforming the area, almost beyond recognition.
Eurobodalla Shire Council infrastructure services director Warren Sharpe said the goal was to have the new park at the Visitor Information Centre mostly complete in time for the October long weekend.
Concrete pouring continues while native trees including tuckeroos, coastal banksias and brush boxes will soon be planted in the raised stonework beds.
The softfall playground equipment at the park however won’t be installed until later in the year, while there are also plans to later etch into the concrete pathways in the park and along the highway with nature designs done by Narooma Public School students.
The park design and layout was inspired by the shape, colours and textures of Montague Island.
The undergrounding of power lines and installation of streetlights around the roundabout was now also complete.
There was still a lot of work to complete before the $4million project was complete by December.
The stonewalls at Ted Street Park on the hill leading down to the Narooma Sports and Leisure Centre were now finished, and over the next few months, the Paddle Pop inspired seats and signs will be installed.
Work crews continued to do the curb and guttering along the Princes Highway all the way down the Princes Highway to Riverside Drive, while power lines to Field Street would also be placed underground.
