As part of Council’s footpath capital works program, we are constructing a footpath along Wood Street, Templestowe between McLachlan Street and Milne Street. The footpath will improve accessibility and safety.
Where is it?
Construction of the new footpath will be between Wood Street between McLachlan Street and Milne Street in Templestowe.
Why is the footpath needed?
To provide residents with a well-connected and safe all-weather footpath on the south side of Wood Street, Templestowe between McLachlan St to Milne Street. Kerb and channel has been proposed along this section of road due to the steepness of the nature-strip and fitting in a flat path.
When will the works happen?
The project will commence in May 2023.
Disruptions to the schedule can occur due to weather, contractor availability, and possible restriction to work.
How will the works affect me?
During the construction process, we may require some space for materials and machinery to construct the footpath. Appropriate signage and traffic management will be in place to assist with traffic and pedestrian movement and to provide guidance on access to your properties.
We will notify residents whose properties will be directly affected. Every effort will be made to reduce any inconvenience during the progress of these works.
Works will be programmed to minimise disruption to private properties and maintain emergency access and will generally be undertaken during normal working hours.
