Questions we asked: Council gives answers on CBD upgrade

After last week’s community consultation, Kyogle Council clarified aspects of the CBD upgrade that were raised by the 80 people who gave their feedback on the day.

No detour or truck bypass

Transport for NSW confirmed that there were no plans in the foreseeable future for a detour or heavy vehicle bypass in the main street and that roundabouts were not to be used on any of the intersections. Council will continue to advocate for a heavy vehicle bypass of the Kyogle main street in the longer term.

40km/h in main street

Transport for NSW has agreed to a reduced speed limit of 40km/h in the high pedestrian zone.

Privately owned land

Although the plan suggests future uses for some privately-owned land in the CBD, this does not mean the council will acquire the land. These are ideas designed to assist landowners in considering the future development and use of their land.

Stratheden St to be one-way for traffic

Between the Summerland Way and Roxy Lane, Stratheden St will become one-way – it will not be closed to all traffic except during community events when a road closure order is in place.

Public submissions on the revised plans can be made up until  Friday, January 21 by email to or in writing to PO Box 11, Kyogle, NSW 2474.
