DAY BY DAY: Early start to roadworks to avoid our ‘peak hour rush’?

EARLY START: Roadworks in McNamara Street on Sunday morning.
EARLY START: Roadworks in McNamara Street on Sunday morning.

Normally the loudest sounds you hear in Orange on a Sunday morning are coffee machines.

But this Sunday was different.

The sounds of roadworks, in the form of a digger breaking up concrete in McNamara Street and loading it into a truck, filled the 8am air.

Is this a sign of Orange’s new urban feel, roadworks having to be done at unlikely hours, to beat the Monday morning ‘peak hour rush’?

The site, which enters an all-day car park behind the Hotel Canobolas, is to receive beautification works and a loading zone for trucks.

Not all locals approved of it and it was debated extensively at Orange City Council.

But at least the work has started.
