Sealed road pavement works are being undertaken along Coghlan Road, Cowes, as part of Councils 2017/18 Capital Works Program.

The works will start from the Cowes Rhyll Road roundabout to Boardwalk Boulevard roundabout, Cowes.

The pavement works funded by Bass Coast Shire Council come to a total cost of $112,000. These works are being completed in partnership with South Gippsland Quarries who are currently undertaking a number of other works along Coglan Road.

The total scope of works include: Verge and drainage clearing, drainage pipe and pit works including kerb and channel and road widening on the west side of Coghlan Road, and pavement renewal and sealing.

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Pamela Rothfield, explains the works play an important part in maintaining a safe urban road network.

“With the subdivision project occurring along Coghlan Road, it is important that the appropriate infrastructure is developed,” Cr Rothfield said.

Works have commenced, with an anticipated completion date by mid-May 2018.

There will be changes in traffic movements that include a lane closure controlled by traffic controllers and a worksite speed restriction of 40 km/hr.

Outside of normal working hours the road will be returned to two lane traffic at appropriate speed restrictions.

Drivers are urged to be patient and obey all traffic control measures onsite.
