Greater Shepparton City Council will begin works to widen Wyndham Street along the Victoria Park Lake frontage.
The improvements will increase the safety of one of the municipality’s busiest attractions, and are being completed as part of the contract to install traffic lights at the Wyndham Street/Railway Line/McIntosh Street/Hassett Street and Fitzjohn Street intersection.
Council’s Director Infrastructure Phil Hoare said “Council is pleased to see works begin, the works will address the narrow parking lane on Wyndham Street adjacent to the Victoria Park Lake, improving safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians,” Mr Hoare said.
“It is anticipated that the works will be completed by November and will provide a much needed safety improvement. There will be significant disruption to traffic flow during these works so we look forward to the cooperation of the community to ensure that the works are undertaken safely and a quickly as possible,” said Mr Hoare.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane north bound, and motorists can expect some delays associated with the works. Council asks anyone passing through this area to take extra care, allow additional time and be aware of changes to parking and traffic detours while the works are taking place.
