Why do we need new street trees?
New street trees are needed to replace trees which are on the eastern side of Jerilderie Street. The trees are on the eastern side of Jerilderie Street are in relatively poor condition and have been further damaged by pruning for overhead power lines. These trees will be removed as part of planned upgrades to drainage in Berrigan’s Jerilderie Street. Upgrades that have been discussed with affected residents, and the broader community as part of the development of the Berrigan Town Plan.
Work is due to start in the next two to three weeks on new drains and the installation of new kerbs and gutters in Jerilderie Street, Berrigan from the junction of Horsfall Street to Orr Street. An asbestos cement water main will also be replaced in addition to a new drain on the western side of Jerilderie Street.
The avenue of pepper corn trees on the western side of Jerilderie Street will not be removed as part of this project.
This work is needed to improve vehicle and pedestrian safety on the Riverina Highway section of Jerilderie Street during and after heavy rain. It is also the first step toward implementing Berrigan’s newly adopted Town Plan.
