Pedestrian focus for Murray Street works

Bass Coast Shire Council is undertaking traffic safety improvement works along Murray Street in Wonthaggi, with the works anticipated to start on Monday, 11 April.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Jordan Crugnale, said the works aim to improve road safety for both motorists and pedestrians.

“Safe, designated pedestrian crossing points will be located within Murray Street, whilst a new pedestrian refuge island will be constructed at the intersection of Murray Street and McBride Avenue,” Cr Crugnale said.

“Other works will include minor kerb and channel works, new line marking, and parking changed to angle parking in front of the Aldi supermarket.”

The works should be completed by 22 April, weather permitting.

The $40,000 project is jointly funded by Council and the Local Roads Safety Improvement Program.

“We appreciate that these works may present some inconvenience and we ask for your patience during these times,” Cr Crugnale said.

“Our contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions to motorists, residents and local businesses.”
