Safety works for Hagelthorn Street

Hagelthorn Street between Baillieu Street East and Billson Street in Wonthaggi is currently undergoing road safety improvements.

The works are anticipated to be completed by mid-May, weather permitting, and a road closure will be in place throughout the duration of the works.

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Jordan Crugnale, said road safety is the focus of the project.

“The works will improve safety around the intersection and control the traffic speed at both the intersection and along Hagelthorn Street,” Cr Crugnale said.

“These road works are important in ensuring the urban road network is safe and sustainable for the community into the future and appropriate levels of service are maintained.

“We have notified local residents and will work closely with them throughout the duration of the works, and ask motorists to please seek an alternate route and parking whilst the works are happening.”

The works involve:

  • To upgrade existing intersections at Baillieu Street East and Hagelthorn Street for road safety purposes. This will occur at both intersections Hagelthorn Street/Baillieu Street East.
  • New drainage pipes and kerb and channel works along the south (residential) side
  • Minor pavement widening to support the intersection upgrades and pavement renewal works along Hagelthorn Street
  • Installation of appropriate signage and line marking at intersections

The $350,000 project is jointly funded by Council’s Local Roads Safety Improvement program and Roads to Recovery.
