    Orange residents had questions answered at a public forum on Tuesday night about how, when and in what order the city’s road and footpath network will be upgraded.

    Council staff took the opportunity to unveil the list of work expected to be completed this year as well as a draft plan for the next four years.


    Orange Mayor Reg Kidd said the community asked a range of questions and gained an insight into how difficult decisions are made.

    “Orange City Council manages 479 kilometres of road, 454 kilometres of kerb and gutter, 148 kilometres of paths and 41 bridges,” Cr Kidd said.

    “We have to make tough decisions when it comes to allocating funding to upgrade sections of that vast network.

    “Council makes those decisions based on a range of factors including engineering science, community expectations and cost.

    “The treatment for every road is different depending on where it is, what it’s used for and what the long term plan for the road is.

    “There are a few roads in the city which need significant work, however there’s no point in wasting money upgrading a road, only for it to be ripped up in a couple of years to make way for a major project. Dairy Creek Road is a classic example. It will soon be completely rebuilt to form part of the Southern Feeder Road so we’ve held off doing any major work on that section.

    “I’m pleased Council staff were able to answer questions from the public and I encourage anyone who would like more information to contact Council or go to Council’s YourSay Orange website. There you check online maps that show where work is happening in local neighbourhoods.”

    Orange City Council’s Infrastructure Chair and Deputy Mayor Sam Romano said there are number of major projects to be tackled in the coming road-building season.

    “Our major projects for the year include the Southern Feeder Road Stage 2, which is well underway and Stage 3 from Elsham Avenue to the Mitchell Highway including the intersection,” Cr Romano said.

    “The tender for the roundabout at William Maker Drive and the Northern Distributor Road is going out in October and we’ll be getting started on two more roundabouts throughout the year; Hill Street/ Matthews Avenue and McLachlan Street/ March Street.

    “Some of the highlights of our footpath program includes an upgrade to Byng Street from Sampson to Clinton and along Clinton Street from Byng to Summer Street. There’s always more work to do but we’re focussing on the areas with higher pedestrian numbers.

    “On Hill Street there’ll be a new path from Moulder to Kite Street and we’re finishing off the end of the street from Franklin Road to the existing path.

    “Both sides of Churchill Avenue will be completed from Tobruk Crescent to Glenroi Avenue as well as paths in Glenroi Avenue, Nile Street and Forest Road south of the east fork bridge.”


    Questions on the night included queries about the future of upgrades in the Ploughman’s Lane area. The forum heard that the priority for funding were completing later stages of the Southern feeder Road towards Pinnacle Rd and near Towac.

    While preliminary discussions had begun with the RMS about the design of a proposed roundabout at the corner of Ploughmans Lane and Escort Way, there was no funding priority at this stage for work on Ploughmans Lane between Escort Way, Cargo Road and south to the railway line.

    Road Major Projects 2019/20 including:
    • Southern Feeder Road Stage 2 – Blowes Road to Forest Road Lights (Underway)
    • Southern Feeder Road Stage 3 – Elsham Avenue to Mitchell Highway including Intersection
    • Southern Feeder Road Stage 4 – Anson Street to Pinnacle Road (subject to Grant Funding)

    Find out which Orange roads and footpaths are on Council’s hit list this year and gain insight into how those decisions are made at a public workshop next week.

    Orange Mayor Reg Kidd encouraged everyone to come along to hear and see for themselves how Council staff prioritise work.

    Find out which Orange roads and footpaths are on Council’s hit list this year and gain insight into how those decisions are made at a public workshop next week.

    Orange Mayor Reg Kidd encouraged everyone to come along to hear and see for themselves how Council staff prioritise work.

    “Over the last three years, Council had focused on roads, then footpaths with its budget and you will be able to see on Tuesday exactly what we did with that funding and the difference made,” Cr Kidd said.

    Cargo Road has been recently upgraded.

    “Given how dry it’s been, it’s hard to cast your mind back to 2016 where we had record rainfall three out of four months.

    “That rainfall played havoc with our road network and it was all people were talking about, Council responded by allocating record funding.
    “We upgraded dozens of kilometres of roads including major upgrades likes the ones completed in William Street, Leeds Parade, Cargo Road, Forest Road and Kite Street.

    “We added several kilometres to our footpath network and we’ve begun replacing asphalt footpaths around the CBD with concrete paths.”

    Orange City Council’s Infrastructure Policy Committee Chair and Deputy Mayor Sam Romano said Council staff prioritised work based on a range of factors.

    “Council has an asset management system whereby staff physically check the state of a road or footpath, grade it, record it and monitor it,” Cr Romano said.

    ‘When it comes to scheduling upgrades, the condition of the asset is taken into account, but also how often that road or footpath is used, it’s location, what type of public infrastructure is nearby as well as the community expectation and community requests.

    “Staff also need to take into account the future use of an area. For example is there a major road planned in the near future, or a major development where construction could damage the road or footpath.

    “We’d like to be as transparent with our systems as possible, which is why we’re inviting everyone to come to the Council Chambers on Tuesday night and learn about how those decisions are made.

    “We will also be detailing what is on the list for upgrades this financial year, and what we plan on upgrading over the next four years.”

    The public workshop focused on road and footpath upgrades is on Tuesday, August 13 from 6pm.

    There’s been good progress on the first stages of a $1.3 million upgrade of Burrendong Way, with access to the road from the Burrendong/bypass roundabout now open again.

    Work began in early May on the project to re-build a 600 metre long section of Burrendong Way, south from the northern bypass roundabout to Sunrise Way.

    The project is fully funded by Orange City Council.

    The project includes adding around 675 metres of stormwater drains alongside the road. Having the northern section of the road closed for the last few weeks has let contractors make good progress on the new drainage system which involves installing underground pipes of between 375 to 600 mm diameter.

    PROGRESS : Council contractors are making good progress on an upgrade of Burrendong Way south of the bypass. The traffic barriers blocking southbound traffic have now been removed.

    Southbound traffic is now able to enter Burrendong Way from the bypass. While roadworks continue drivers can expect delays with only one lane of traffic during the day, returning to two lanes open at night.

    The road building project will also include :

    • removing the current road surface
    • replacing the underlying pavement down to depth of between 150 and 500 mm
    • re-surfacing the road with hot-mix bitumen
    • kerb & gutter on the eastern side of the road.

    As part of the project, a footpath will be built on the eastern side of the road with connections to walking paths in the nearby wetlands.

    The work is expected to continue until September, weather permitting.

    The project is part of a long-term plan to upgrade Burrendong Way. Sections of the road north of the roundabout have already been completed.

    Orange mayor Cr Reg Kidd has welcomed the NSW Government announcement to fund $2.3 million towards a $4.7 million new roundabout at the corner of the northern bypass and William Maker Drive.

    It will be one of Orange’s biggest roundabouts, on the scale of the by-pass/Molong Road roundabout, with two lanes of traffic in and out.

    The project will also include a re-alignment of the northern end of Hill St to join the southern leg of the roundabout.

    It’s expected traffic flow improvements will include a significant reduction in current waiting times for Hill St traffic entering the bypass.

    The roundabout project is expected to go to tender in the coming months with work to be completed before the end of the 2020 calendar year.

    PROJECT : The new roundabout includes plans to re-align the northern end of Hill St, removing long delays for traffic entering the bypass. (Click to see detailed plan)

    During construction, steps will be taken to minimise the impact for traffic on the bypass and in William Maker Drive. For ‘most’ of the project’s timeline, the new roundabout will be built in an area on the southern side of the bypass, allowing traffic in William Maker Drive and the bypass to continue uninterrupted.

    Because the re-alignment of Hill St, the project also includes an upgrade to the bluestone gates at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens car park.

    PROJECT FUNDING :

    • Total project ~ $4.7 million
    • NSW Govt funding ~ $2.359 million
    • Remainder ~ OCC funding and industry contributions

    Announcing the funding, Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Premier Steph Cooke said the ‘Resources for Regions’ program was established by the NSW Government to deliver improved local infrastructure to mining-related communities.

    Mrs Cooke said the funding would go a long way improving critical infrastructure projects in the region.

    Orange mayor Cr Reg Kidd welcomed the announcement.

    FUNDING : Pictured on the site of the new roundabout are Deputy Mayor Cr Sam Romano, Member for Orange Phil Donato, Orange Mayor Reg Kidd and Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Premier, Steph Cooke.

    “The new roundabout has been on Orange City Council’s project list for some time and I’m delighted the NSW Government is coming to the party to let this crucial piece of infrastructure be built,” Cr Reg Kidd said.

    “The bypass road is growing in popularity both for traffic moving through the region and for commuters driving from one side of Orange to the other. The new roundabout is a major investment in boosting the efficiency of this road.”

  • Road building season wraps up

    over 1 year ago

    Wednesday, June 13, 2018.

    Orange City Council road crews have wrapped up road building season this financial year after completing more than 16 kilometres of road work including several major upgrades such as Leeds Parade, William Street and Kite Street.

    Work by contractors on Cargo Road and Forest Road is ongoing during the winter season but Council crews will be targeting road repair and maintenance until October.

    Orange mayor Reg Kidd said this year’s road building season was successful and Council had managed to make a significant difference to the quality of Orange’s roads.

    Wednesday, June 13, 2018.

    Orange City Council road crews have wrapped up road building season this financial year after completing more than 16 kilometres of road work including several major upgrades such as Leeds Parade, William Street and Kite Street.

    Work by contractors on Cargo Road and Forest Road is ongoing during the winter season but Council crews will be targeting road repair and maintenance until October.

    Orange mayor Reg Kidd said this year’s road building season was successful and Council had managed to make a significant difference to the quality of Orange’s roads.


    BURRENDONG WAY: A clip from earlier work done on Burrendong Way using a bulldozer.

    “It’s more cost effective and better decision for ratepayers to have our crews head into repair and maintenance mode during the cooler, wetter months,” Cr Reg Kidd said.

    “But while it was warm they have had all hands on deck getting through a mammoth list of jobs.

    “Those included a major upgrade on William Street from Byng Street to March Street and a two kilometre stretch of Leeds Parade.

    “These roads in particular have received a lot of community feedback and we’ve certainly listened to that and responded.

    “A few years ago there was a lot of heat around the subject of roads and I believe that has certainly dissipated because we’ve got on with the job of upgrading Orange’s roads.”

    Orange City Council Infrastructure Committee Chair Cr Sam Romano said the Council had heard “loud and clear” from the public road infrastructure was a major community priority.

    “We’re continuing to fund roads in a big way to reflect the community sentiment,” Cr Romano said.

    “In the 2018/2019 budget we’ve allocated $28 million on roads, including a range of reseals, rehabilitations and spray seals and that’s another record.

    “I certainly think the community has noticed an improvement in our road network and we are committed to further improvement in that area.”

    In the 2017/2018 road building season, Council crews, along with contractors completed 10 major rehabilitations or reconstructions and nearly 30 roads were given a new spray seal or a reseal.

    The following is a list of work completed during the 2017/2018 road building season:
    • Lords Place – Gardiner Road to the end of Lords Place – rehabilitation* and hotmix.
    • Ophir Road – First crossing and the next 140m- rehabilitation and spray seal.
    • Kite Street- Hill Street to Sampson Street- rehabilitation and removal of a dip in the road at the Clinton Street intersection.
    • North Orange Bypass – Anson Street to Clergate Road – Hot mix asphalt reconstruction
    • Leeds Parade – Margaret Street to Northern Distributor Road – Rehabilitate and spray seal / hotmix asphalt at intersections.
    • Burrendong Way – Northern Distributor Road to Wiradjuri Way – Widening, reconstruction and spray seal.
    • Cargo Road – Boundary to Whitton Lane, sub soil drainage works pavement strengthening and seal.
    • Cargo Road – Whitton to Ploughmans – Stormwater drainage and bulk earthworks (ongoing) with road upgrading next construction season.
    • Wicks Road – full length – Form pavement and spray seal
    • Canobolas Road causeway – widen road and reconstruct causeway with new drainage culvert.
    • Forest Road – Southern Feeder Road to the hospital- Widening, reconstruction, hot mix asphalt seal and traffic lights at the main hospital entrance. (Ongoing)
    • William Street from March Street to Byng Street – reconstruction using a cement stabilised based and a heavy duty layer of hotmix asphalt.
    • Hill Street – Moulder Street to Warrendine Street - rehabilitation and spray seal
    • Anson Street – at Lister Drive and at Phillip Street - rehabilitation and hot mix asphalt

    • Mitchell Parade at Anson Street (Asphalt)
    • Forest Road and Peisley Street at East Fork (Asphalt non-slip surfacing)
    * The most common road renewal technique that Orange City Council uses is called Pavement Rehabilitation.Pavement rehabilitation or 'Stabilising' involves-
    • the pavement seal and gravel is pulverised by a road reclaimer machine.
    • a binder is added for strength, and the pavement is watered and re-compacted
    • a surface seal of either asphalt or sprayed seal is applied.
    • ** A Reconstruction is the replacement of the entire existing pavement structure with new materials.
