New Carpark A Blessing

Cowra is seeing the benefits of one of the biggest projects to be completed in town in recent memory, with the new Target carpark making shopping easy for residents.

Local business owner Joshua Matic said the $1.365 million redevelopment had proved a big relief for businesses and customers that use the Target carpark precinct.

Mr Matic owns and operates Yellow House Cowra Design and Print on Rowston Lane, directly adjacent to the Target carpark, with staff and customers using the carpark to access the printing business.

He said the quality of the new carpark was out-standing, and that customers had provided posi-tive feedback.

“I cannot fault Council on the project at all. They kept us informed every step of the way, and whilst it took a few months to complete, we now have a perfect carpark for our staff and customers to use that is safe,” he said.

The upgrades were made possible by funding from round two of the State Government’s Regional NSW Infrastructure Grants program.

The “CBD and Car Park Redevelopment” project included the installation of stormwater pits, pipes and on-site detention, relocation services, street furniture, new solar car park lighting, car park line marking, new paving on the Lachlan laneway next to the Lachlan Hotel, landscaping, kerb and gutter replacement on Rowston Lane, and pavement preparation and resealing in the Target carpark.

“Works commenced September 2020 with the upgrade to the Lachlan Hotel and Target carpark stormwater drainage and pavement. Works were completed in stages to minimise the inconvenience to the public and businesses, and to minimise areas of the carpark unavailable for parking at any one time,” a spokesperson from Cowra Shire Council said.
