Yambil Street in Griffith continues to be a hive of activity as work on the south side and in the median car-parking progresses.

Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi thanked the community for its patience while the work proceeds.

“At this stage it is anticipated that work will be completed by the end of February and this section of road reopened to traffic,” Cr Dal Broi said.

“Work will then commence on the north side of Yambil Street however, this timing is indicative and may change in which case Council will advise further.

“Median street parking along this section of Yambil Street will discontinue from Thursday, 31 January. Unlimited street parking continues to be available along the full length of Yambil Street with the exception of the south side where work is underway.”

On Monday, 4 February work to lay pipes in Kooyoo Street (between Yambil and Canal Streets) will commence.

Kooyoo Street will be closed to traffic from the Yambil Street intersection for approximately 30 metres. Vehicle access will be permissible from Canal Street to the road closure point. Pedestrian access is available. It is anticipated that this work will be completed mid-February and Kooyoo Street reopened.

There is a possibility of disruption to telecommunications, power and gas supply, with Council endeavouring to inform those affected as soon as possible.

Work hours will remain from 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday. However, should the hot weather conditions persist, early start and early shutdown, from 6am to 2pm, will occur.  

Noise and dust control will continue to be in place along with traffic management while these works are carried out.

Cr Dal Broi said he looks forward to seeing the end results of the much-needed facelift for Yambil Street, which includes new footpaths, landscaping, seating, garbage bins and improved access to shops.

“Council will continue to provide updates as this work progresses to keep residents informed,” Cr Dal Broi said.
