Footpath and bus shelter on the go

A+new+footpath+and+bus+shelter+will+be+built+along+Bayview+Avenue+in+Inverloch+this+January

A new footpath and bus shelter will be built along Bayview Avenue in Inverloch this January.

The new path will run alongside the Inverloch Recreation Reserve between Reilly Street and Sandy Mount Avenue. Work will start on the project in early January and should be completed by the start of February. The work is being carried out during the school holidays to minimise disruption to school traffic and all other road users.

These works are co-funded by VicRoads for the new footpath and Public Transport Victoria for the bus shelter in the order of $66,000. This is in addition to Council’s 2018/19 Capital Works Program.

This new footpath will give the primary school, local residents and the wider community, a safe pedestrian connection to this area. The existing bus shelter located on Bayview Avenue will be upgraded and will be compliant with accessibility requirements.

The project will involve the construction of around 200 metres of two metre wide, fibre reinforced concrete path and service adjustments as required. The new path will connect the existing path network at Sandy Mount Avenue and to the school crossing on Bayview Avenue.

While these works are underway, some disruptions to pedestrians and road users may occur. The contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction.

Local residents, businesses and other stakeholders can keep up to date with the project via Council’s website www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/projects.
