Darling Street Redevelopment

Home > Darling Street Redevelopment

A significant redevelopment of Darling Street between Wingewarra and Talbragar Street has commenced to renew the aging infrastructure.

The project will tackle major issues such as storm water drainage, street landscaping, traffic management, pedestrian and cyclist amenity and be completed in stages between July 2014 and November 2015.

The first stage is the removal of 17 London Plane Trees to be completed July 26/27 2014.
Subsequent stages will commence in August and continue to March 2015. These stages will be;

- Improvements to stormwater designs to prevent pooling of water on the eastern side
- Widening and replacement of the eastern footpath and the realignment of water supply mains
- Installation of raised threshold at the intersection of Darling Street and Church Street
- Replacement of trees on the street shoulders.

Road reconstruction including the installation of a centre median with pedestrian refuge islands will take place from July to November 2015.

Given the extent of the construction work required changed traffic conditions will be in place for a substantial amount of time between August and March 2015. 

Various traffic management plans will be put in place during this time including partial road closures, restrictions of pedestrian access and parking, reducing traffic to two lanes and closure of south bound lanes in order to progress construction in a timely and efficient manner.

Traffic management and parking considerations are being taken into consideration in the construction stages of the project. 

Local access to Dubbo Public School, Darling Street businesses, Victoria Park Number 1 Oval and the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre will be a priority in the design of traffic management plans. Weekend work, night works and partial closures will be utilised where possible to reduce the impact of construction work.
