Flat Bridge, St Marys

As part of the St Marys Flood Mitigation Project, Council contractors, Bridge Pro, will be raising the height of The Flat Bridge, St Marys by one metre including culverts and road ramps.
The St Marys Flood Risk Management project found this will reduce flooding of Main Street significantly.
This work is scheduled to start on 4 December and take two to three weeks. The aim is to have the work completed by Christmas.
During this time the road will be closed with access still available via Franks Street. Please obey roadworks signage, stay clear and drive with care to keep workers and the public safe.

In December 2017 we introduced a kerbside recycling service.

This means that the YELLOW lidded bin is now a recycling bin and the RED lidded bin is for general household waste.
