NIGHT works will begin in Kilmore this month as part of Mitchell Shire Council’s Sydney Street Rejuvenation Project.

The works include the installation of new light poles in Sydney Street for improved illumination, as well as pedestrian refuges at three locations.

Traffic management will be in place between Bourke and Union Street from 7pm to 5am each weeknight from Monday, November 14 for about three weeks.

Some works and traffic management will also be in place at Mitchell Street. Traffic along Sydney Street could be reduced to one lane during the night works, with potential for some extended delays for vehicles travelling north and south.

Mayor Bill Chisholm said council and appointed contractors would work to ensure the impact of the night works was minimal, and that they were completed as quickly as possible.

“We understand this stage of the project is an inconvenience, but the nature of the works means a disruption to traffic is unavoidable,” he said.

“Completing the works at night means minimal disruption to traffic, businesses and pedestrians.

“We appreciate the patience of the Kilmore community as we work to complete this project that will have a positive impact on the town, residents and businesses and rejuvenate the main street.”
