Bellingen Main Street Stage 3 Beautification and Accessibility Project Commences

The works will involve the relocation of the existing pedestrian crossing on Hyde Street as well as earth works, pavement works, upgrade of the water main, installation of power and lighting, tree removal and landscaping in and around the intersection.
