Council's Road Rehabilitation Program In Full Swing

Moyne residents and visitors may have noticed increased road works across the Shire, as Council’s roads rehabilitation program moves into full swing for the year.

With the timing for road works largely impacted by weather conditions, the drier, summer months is when Council road work crews are at their busiest, with the plan tp deliver more than $9 million of works budgeted in the 2020/21 financial year.

Moyne Shire Mayor, Cr Daniel Meade, said Council’s program of road works focuses on improving safety for all motorists in the Shire.

“This year’s road works budget includes $5 million for road rehabilitation, $2 million for resealing, and $1 million for resheeting unsealed roads,” Cr Meade said.

“Rehabilitation works are those where whole sections of Council roads need repairing, and can require significant earthworks before a new road surface can be laid.

“We’ve also recently commenced major works on parts of Darlington Nerrin Road, Occupation Lane and our most significant roads project for this year, a three kilometre section of Portland Road.

"The Portland Road works have been funded under the Fixing Country Roads Program, receiving $1.3 million from the State Government and $650,000 from Council.”

Further safety improvements for local roads are also being worked on as part of this year’s budget with $334,000 committed to a road safety package, $100,000 to upgrade the intersection of Dwarroon Road and Hallowells Road in Cudgee and $50,000 to roads signs.
