Crispe Street roadworks (June 2019)

June 20 2019

While most of the attention is on Napier Street and the National Bridge, Crispe Street is also getting a good work over with a section of street all dug up.

For those who don’t live in town, the town has been worked on extensively in the last couple of months with Scott Park, the Deniliquin Swim Centre,¬† Napier Street, the old Scout Hall and the National Bridge all being worked on in the last year or less.

Below are two images of the work that is going on, we will keep readers updated on how smooth the road is considering people thought so lowly of Deniliquin’s roads in October last year.

Bridge Being Prettied Up

June 7 2019

The National Bridge is currently getting a makeover and this means that things are going to be a little slow when it comes to going over the river.

As you can see above, this was the action on Davidson Street earlier in the week and there was a long queue of cars trying to get towards the CBD.

Those of you who have read what we’ve had to say over time may recall that we had a discussion of what happens if the bridge is out of action, the repainting partially answers the question.

But it all should be worth it in the end, the bridge should look fantastic and though we’re not sure if it would bring joy to tourists, it will still look nice to walk or drive over.
