Local roads will be resealed and rehabilitated under a multi-million dollar Federal Government infrastructure program.
The government’s Road to Recovery program will fund or partially fund upgrades to seven roads across Cardinia Shire with works already underway or scheduled to begin in the new year.
It has been announced that Hall Road, Pakenham South, from the McDonalds Drain Road intersection to the Kooweerup Road intersection will undergo a $556,678 full rehabilitation involving the digging out and replacing of the full pavement and the application of a new asphalt surface.
Bunyip’s Hope Street, from the intersection with the Princes Highway to the intersection with Wattletree Road will be patched in isolated areas of concern, and a new asphalts surface will be overlayed, at a total cost of $66,674.
The town’s Main Street from the High Street east intersection to the George Street intersection will also have patch works completed at a cost of $80,000.
In Beaconsfield, works will begin in January on a $50,349 upgrade to Timberside Drive between O’Neil Road and Fieldstone Boulevard, as well as a $49,958 revamp of Scenic Drive between the two Fieldstone Boulevard intersections.
Works are already underway on the full rehabilitation of Manks Road, Dalmore, between Adams and Tooradin Station roads and Seven Mile Road, Nar Nar Goon, from 200m south of the Bourke Road intersection to 130m north of the Wittas Lane crossover.
These final two projects come at a cost of $629,354 and $932,224 respectively.
Flinders MP Greg Hunt, who announced the upgrades, said he was hopeful that the vital road upgrades would help reduce fatal car accidents.
“Reducing road trauma is a responsibility for us all – it’s about safer drivers, safer cars and safer roads,” Mr Hunt said.
Cardinia Shire Council is also contributing to the funding of the upgrades.
