This weeks planned works (weather permitting) 10-15 October:

• Construction of a concrete splitter island in Anderson St, at the intersection with McCartin St.
• Reinstatement of kerb and driveways in Anderson St.
• Concrete infill of splitter islands.
• Installation of various signs.

** Asphalting works will commence at the intersection of South Gippsland Hwy and Nerrena Rd on Saturday 15th October, continuing through Sunday 16th October. This will see the final application of asphalt to be installed at this intersection, together with permanent linemarking, and is subject to favorable weather conditions. This work is being undertaken on the weekend due to lower traffic volumes than during the week.
