Bass Coast Shire is set to commence kerb renewal and associated works on Bruce Street Inverloch in mid-March 2023. The project is expected to cost approximately $160,000 and will be funded through the Council’s adopted Capital Works Kerb Renewal Program 2022/23. Super Paving Vic Pty Ltd has been appointed as the contractor through the annual supply contract process. The works will involve the removal and installation of about 300 metres of barrier kerb and drainage lines on the south and northeast side of the road, including some laybacks into driveways.
The reconstruction of road pavement one metre in front of the new sections of kerb and channel will also be carried out, including asphalt surfacing. As part of these works, new concrete may be placed through landowner’s driveways. Access to properties will be restricted for a four-day period following the pouring of the concrete kerb to allow it to set properly before any vehicles can use their driveway. Appropriate traffic and pedestrian control measures will be implemented onsite during these works.
The community, residents, businesses, and other stakeholders will be kept up to date with the project via Council’s website. The use of heavy plant and machinery, including noisy and vibration works for construction, will be in operation during the project. The project is expected to be completed in late April 2023, subject to favourable weather, contractor availability and material supply.
Council advises nearby residents who may be impacted by these works to be mindful of the construction zone and appreciate that access will be restricted for safety reasons. Our contractor will notify those who may be affected by these works in advance. The renewal of this section of Bruce Street Kerb and Channel ensures that Council’s road network is sustainable and will continue to provide appropriate levels of service for road users well into the future.
