Tender for the Northern Entry Road: Council awarded the tender for the construction of the Southern Jerrabomberra Northern Entry Road (NER) at our March Planning and Strategy Committee Meeting. We now expect to see work begin very shortly. The NSW Government recently confirmed a $23 million investment into the South Jerrabomberra Innovation Precinct which provides the funding to enable the road to be constructed as well as the essential gas, lighting, water, sewerage and fibre optic connections. Council has also committed $8 million. The South Jerrabomberra Innovation Precinct is a vision of QPRC to initiate a defence, space, energy and renewables technology cluster of business, integrating with the innovation hub and high school to build skills and jobs. The road also unlocks the land for the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Sports Complex and a Jerrabomberra High School.
