Project Description

Myrtle St, is a well-used town street that was constructed in its present form in the early 60’s. The pavement is continually breaking up and potholing with severe breakouts along the shoulders partly caused by the collapsed/inoperative kerb and gutter. The intersection with Morris St (Eastern end) has caused concerns with its alignment and elevation, a safety issue for both motorists and pedestrians. In councils hierarchical system this street is classed as a primary through street.

Stage 1. Lower the approach to Morris Street intersection by 250mm and re-align Kerb and Gutter . Stage 2. Rehabilitate pavement full width (12 metres) from the intersection of Morris Street to the intersection of Wamboin Street (350 metres). Stage 3. Remove old broken/inoperative Kerb and gutter and replace with lay-back style kerb and gutter, Southern side only (350 metres)
