Contra traffic control is in place around the intersection of Aura Blvd and Baringa Drive as the intersection there is upgraded in preparation for the opening of the extension to Aura Blvd. There is stop/go traffic movement there this morning and road building crews are hard at work preparing the intersection for traffic. Much of the safety fencing there has been dismantled.
Workers have been busily preparing the safety fencing around the lake and parkland area just to the north of the proposed Shopping Village for removal. Though still in place today (Thursday) other workers can be seen carrying out the finishing touches to the gardens beside the lake. This area will open onto the Baringa Town Centre just beside and behind the Baringa State Primary School. When open a new pedestrian and cycling pathway will be open to provide a connection to the current pathway behind the new soccer grounds.
Baringa is booming!
