COUNCIL MEETINGS AND TIMES
In accordance with clause 7 of the Road Regulations 2008 ,
Council provides notice of its proposal to adopt or alter street
names resulting from the realignment of the Kings Highway
in the area known as Bungendore Hill.
The changes proposed are as follows:
Changing the point at which Bungendore Road
of the new section of the Kings Highway, Bungendore
Road now effectively ends at its junction with Thurralilly
Street. The section which wound its way around the
northern side of Bungendore Hill has now been closed
and the surface ripped. The intention is to re-landscape
the road reserve and make it available as a walking trail
in the future. As such the extent of Bungendore Road
will now be from the Queens Bridge in the west to the
junction of Thurralilly Street in the east.
Naming the newly constructed section of road, the Kings
2. Highway. The Kings Highway will therefore commence
at the junction of Thurralilly Street and continue easterly
until it leaves the City boundary.
The small cul-de-sac created by the closure of
3. Bungendore Road at its eastern most junction with the
new Kings Highway needs to be named. An existing
road known as Hill Lane has been realigned to run off
this closed section of Bungendore Road. It is proposed
to extend the name Hill Lane to cover the newly created
cul-de-sac as well as the realigned existing section of
A sketch of the proposed changes is available from Council's
Customer Service Centre or Library at 257 Crawford Street.
These proposed name changes are now on exhibition
for public comment. Any interested person may make
a submission, in writing, relating to these names. Any
submissions need to be received by Council by close of
business on 23 September 2011.
Submissions should be forwarded to: General Manager
PO Box 90 Queanbeyan NSW 2620.
