$400,000 Program Of Works About To Start

Bass Coast Shire Council is about to commence resealing of roads throughout the Shire in the coming weeks.

Mayor, Cr Neil Rankine, said the program is part of Council’s periodic road maintenance work and consists of resurfacing existing bitumen sealed roads.

“Resealing our roads is an important part of maintaining our roads,” Cr Rankine said.

“It helps improve road safety by ensuring the surface of the road is in good condition.

“The program this year involves resealing more than 11km of roads at a cost of approximately $400,000,” Cr Rankine said.

Large sections of the Loch Wonthaggi Rd and of the Grantville Glen Alvie Rd are included in the program, as well as other smaller roads.

Ms Felicity Sist, Director of Infrastructure said that resealing is usually carried out while traffic in one or both directions is stopped.

“There could be delays for motorists, but we aim to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.

“There is also an issue of safety, so we urge drivers to follow the instructions provided by traffic controllers,” Ms Sist said.
