Wingham CBD roadworks to begin

Published on 10 March 2023


UPDATE: 22 May 2023

The first phase of this intersection upgrade is in progress.  Kerb and guttering works are complete. Spray sealing is scheduled for Friday 26 May or Monday 29 May, weather permitting. Asphalting is planned for Tuesday 13 June.



An upgrade to the intersection of Bent Street and Farquhar Street in Wingham will recommence Monday 27 March.

The upgrade is part of the Wingham CBD Masterplan which was co-designed by MidCoast Council and the community to improve the Wingham CBD.

Council has worked closely with a local working party to finalise streetscape details to help ensure that this project reflects the needs and desires of the local community.

The intersection upgrade will provide important safety improvements along with footpath renewals.

During the works, the intersection will be closed and detours will be in place.

Footpaths will also be affected at times, with pedestrians detoured around the works.

Relocation of the underground water and sewer infrastructure and extension of the drainage system was completed earlier last year in the preliminary stage of the project.  

The project team is making arrangements with affected residents and business owners to ensure property access. Council will also be working with the RSL to support ANZAC Day activities.

The works will be completed in three stages, impacting different parts of the intersection at different times.

The first stage will begin Monday March 27 and will involve the southwestern side of the intersection. Traffic heading north on Bent Street will be directed to turn right onto Farquhar Street. Traffic heading west on Farquhar Street will be directed to turn left onto Bent Street.  Delivery vehicles heading east on Farquhar Street will be directed through the site but will not be able to turn into Bent Street.
