Short de­lays, ac­cess re­stric­tions as An­der­son Street works be­gin

Alpine Observer - - News -

WORKS to im­prove the road sur­face and drainage along An­der­son Street in Bright got un­der­way yes­ter­day.

Park­ing bays will also be re­aligned on both sides of the street with all work set to be com­pleted by Fe­bru­ary 21.

Ac­cess along An­der­son Street is ex­pected to re­main, although some short de­lays might oc­cur, and ac­cess to drive­ways will be re­stricted at times.

“The big thing is tak­ing the op­por­tu­nity to fix the drainage from the Shell ser­vice sta­tion up to the Alpine Ho­tel,” Alpine Shire as­sets di­rec­tor Will Jeremy said.

“Along there in win­ter you ba­si­cally step out of your car into pud­dles so we’re go­ing to do what we can to im­prove the drainage on that side of the street.

“We’re some­what limited be­cause there are some elm trees we have com­mit­ted to pre­serve so we can’t dig too far down be­low the cur­rent level of the street.

“If we were to re­move those trees we’d es­sen­tially be able to put in new curb and chan­nelling.”

Mr Jeremy said park­ing on that side of the road will be con­verted from an­gel to par­al­lel and park­ing in front of Gumtree Pies will change from par­al­lel to an­gle.

“The road is very wide in that spot so we be­lieve we can com­fort­ably ac­com­mo­date an­gel park­ing,” he said.
