ROAD renewal works on Station Street in Seymour will begin Monday, October 9.

The $650,000 project is part of council’s preventative maintenance program, ensuring transport infrastructure remains serviceable for the community.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Fiona Stevens said it was important to upgrade the highly-used area.

“As a key part of the centre of Seymour, Station Street has high volumes of pedestrian, cycling and vehicle movements and is also a valued business, transport and community precinct,” she said.

“As such, it is important we refresh the road surface and kerb and channel to ensure they are functional and safe and that people can move freely whilst going about their day to day activities.”

The Station Street works will be completed in two phases.

The removal and replacement of the kerbs between 10 Station Street and 36 Station Street begins Monday, and is expected to last three to four weeks subject to weather.

During the works, angle parking adjacent to the properties will be closed with alternative parking available between Harding Street and Tristan Street.

Following the kerb works completion, there will be road patching and resurfacing between Wallis Street and Crawford Street.

The works will be carried out predominately at night, typically from Sunday to Thursday between 8pm and 5am, and are expected to take about one week, subject to weather.

There will be directional signs for traffic detours and nearby parking with easy pedestrian access through to the main street.

“Events like the recent flooding remind us of the importance of works like this for our community and businesses,” Cr Stevens said.

“We understand the works will cause disruption and inconvenience. We aim to get it done as quickly as possible and ask for your understanding and patience throughout this time.”
