Baw Baw Shire Council advise that the Streetscape Works on Palmerston Street between Victoria Street and Smith Street in Warragul will commence at 6.00pm on Monday 12 February.
Works will be carried out at night time and on weekends to minimise impact of road closures on local businesses and community for the first 3-4 weeks:
- Monday 6:00pm – 6:00am
- Tuesday 6:00pm – 6:00am
- Wednesday 6:00pm – 6:00am
- Saturday 1:00pm – 6:00pm
- Sunday 7:00am – 6:00pm
All road closures will be limited to after hours and weekends (overnight until early morning and opened before 6.00am).
Access to Shops
Access to shops will be maintained during business hours. Works within two metres of the shop will not occur during business hours to allow for pedestrian access to the abutting retail premises.
Footpath paving will occur in stages. No more than 35 metres length of footpath will be opened for work on one side of the road at any time.
Every effort will be made to ensure that impact on general trading and car parking on Palmerston Street is minimised.
Due to the nature of the works there will be the occasional unavoidable requirement to block off isolated carparks.
For the duration of the works Mad Cat Constructions will utilise the Lions Club Kiosk as a site office located on the northern corner of Palmerston Street at the Smith Street intersection.
Two car parks immediately adjacent to the kiosk will be occupied for the duration of the works during daytime trading hours to park small plant and materials.
