Works to replace the Maude and Vaughan Street roundabout with traffic signals will commence on Monday 8 February with the intersection closed to traffic and detours in place.
Jarvis Delahey Contractors, who are undertaking the works on behalf of Council, will establish on site on Monday 8 February.
The intersection of Maude and Vaughan Streets will be closed to traffic in all directions for the duration of the intersection works. Maude Street will remain open to traffic from High to Rowe Streets and Ashenden to Sobraon Streets. Pedestrian access will be maintained to all businesses along Maude Street.
Works will include demolition of the roundabout, removal of existing pavement, storm water upgrades, new pedestrian crossings, concrete works, re-asphalting the intersection, new traffic signals and landscaping.
The roundabout works are expected to be complete by April 2021.
Greater Shepparton City Council Director Infrastructure Phil Hoare said “We are happy to see works progressing along Maude Street, we have completed the gas upgrade with the water main works nearing completion as well. Greater Shepparton residents will see a lot of work occurring above ground. We are working closely with the traders in Maude Street and it’s important that our community is aware that these businesses will be open and accessible during the works.”
“It is exciting to see the major redevelopments happening and we are really looking forward to the significant improvements being completed.
“We ask motorists and pedestrians to stay alert when travelling in this area, as works progress changes to traffic and pedestrian conditions will vary” said Mr Hoare.
