Kalkite Street will remain closed to traffic as Snowy Monaro Regional Council has decided to listen to the concerns of the Jindabyne Central School community.

A meeting was held at the school last week to discuss upgrades to Snowy River Avenue and the proposed plan to re-open Kalkite Street to traffic.

Jindabyne Central School staff, parents and the P&C informed Council they were worried for the safety of their children.

Administrator for Council Dean Lynch informed those at the meeting it would alter design plans for the  upgrade.

Work will commence next week on creating additional parking spaces in the Kalkite Street car park.

This forms part of Council’s plans to upgrade Snowy River Avenue to boost economic activity in Jindabyne as well as linking the Nuggets Crossing precinct with the town centre.
