Major roadworks done

By Seymour Telegraph

Strathbogie Shire Council’s 2017-18 Road Rehabilitation Program has come to a close, with major works projects carried out at five sites across the shire valued about $975000 in total.

Strathbogie Shire Council community assets director Roy Hetherington said the rehabilitation program aimed to renew ageing and damaged infrastructure.

‘‘Our rehabilitation program lifts the standard of these roads to carry modern-day traffic size and volume,’’ Mr Hetherington said.

‘‘It ensures the strength and stability of this infrastructure for many years to come.’’

The following projects were completed in the council’s 2017-18 Road Rehabilitation Program:

●Pine Lodge Rd south of Icks Rd;

●Pine Lodge extension road south of Arcadia Rd;

●Ponkeen Creek Rd, 350m south of Longwood-Ruffy Rd;

●Garrett St from Scott St to De Boos St;

●Anderson St’s south side shoulder between Bury St and Brock St. An asphalt overlay was applied to accommodate formalised parallel parking.

The 2018-19 Road Rehabilitation Program will be announced when the finalised 2018-19 Budget is endorsed on Tuesday, June 26 after the consideration of submissions.
