A revitalisation of the Tweed Heads central business district shifts to the western section of Bay Street this week, starting with a major upgrade of storm water drainage.
Approximately 470m of drainage pipes will be laid during the next two months, to substantially improve drainage flows. Minor earthworks began in the street last week to remove traffic island in the centre of the road, to enable traffic to be diverted during the installation of the pipes.
Works will be staged to maintain two-way traffic flows for almost all of the project. The traffic islands will be replaced by new central medians, as part of the $1.6 million project to create a more attractive, safer and more functional central business district. Council staff are liaising with adjacent residents and business owners this week to explain the works and variations to traffic flows.
