With 2018 almost over, it is great to see the progress that has been made on some of our largest projects including the Nerriga Road upgrade and the Ellerton Drive extension.
The duplication of Old Cooma Road from Edwin Land Parkway to Googong Road is due to start early 2019.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year and we look forward to a fantastic 2019.
General council services will be closed from 1pm on Monday, December 24 and reopen 8.30am on Wednesday, January 2.

Stay safe on the Kings Highway
The NSW Police, ACT Police, ACT Government and the council are teaming up to reduce trauma on the Kings Highway and encourage safe driving for the busy summer holiday period.
Look out for the ‘Reduce your speed; your family is counting on it’ banners installed along the highway, and grab a travel cup when you stop to take a fatigue break along the Kings Highway.
The cups are being given away by ACT Police and participating cafés in Bungendore and Braidwood include Food Lovers Market, Bungendore Bakery, Albion Café and the Braidwood driver reviver.
ACT Police and NSW Police will run enhanced enforcement operations over the summer.

For bins normally collected on a Tuesday in Braidwood, please place your bin out on Sunday evening, December 23, to be collected on Monday, December 24.
