Goulburn Mulwaree Council has proven that its green thumb is almost complete with a lawn project along the central reservation of Auburn Street.

Work is being carried out on three blocks of Auburn Street, which extends from Verner Street to Montague Street. After a test in front of Belmore Park is successful, artificial turf is laid and glued.

A council spokesman said the artificial turf project was part of a CBD improvement project and cost a total of $ 45,000.

They said laying the lawn was a relatively straightforward process that involved precise cutting and an “incredibly tacky” glue to make sure it was safe to walk and wouldn’t move over the years.

General Manager Warwick Bennett said the council had “received a remarkable amount of feedback on the process, most of which is positive”.

“The lawn breaks up the large amount of concrete in the CBD and, together with the newly planted trees and our planters, adds a lot of green to the area.

“If our CBD is a nice place, we will attract more people to the area to enjoy our restaurants, cafes, and shops – and all of this is part of the council’s plan with CBD improvement projects.”

Council staff contacted companies on Auburn Street this week to show them the traffic schedule and to ensure we are working with companies to minimize disruption. The flow of traffic will be maintained at all times, but there will be small diversions and short delays and some parking spaces will be used by contractors.

Pedestrians are encouraged to use the center block and corner intersections to maneuver around the CBD throughout the work.
