Historical Signs To Be Upgraded

Historical signs around Wonthaggi will be removed in coming weeks by Bass Coast Shire Council in preparation for new signs to be installed.

“The signs, which provide historical information for the Wonthaggi Heritage Walk, have become weathered, been vandalised and in some cases, have become unreadable,” Mayor, Cr Neil Rankine said.

“Funding has been sought for the replacement of the 21 signs, but in the meantime, all existing signs will be removed by Council’s Maintenance Team.

“Council is working with the Wonthaggi and District Historical Society to ensure that the new signs will contain relevant photos and accurate text.

“It is also anticipated that the new signs will be more resistant to weathering and vandalism.”
