The grass is greener on the other side of the fence

Campaspe News - - NEWS - By KIM­BER­LEY PRICE

ON-GROUND works for two key pub­lic open spa­ces in Rochester have now been fin­ished.

Cam­paspe Shire Coun­cil mayor Adrian We­ston said the project was jointly funded by a state gov­ern­ment grant of $151,000 with the bal­ance of $117,500 funded by coun­cil. Work at the two sites in­volved:

■ Moore Street, be­tween Fraser and Pas­coe Streets: a foot­path with road cross­ing points and in­for­ma­tion sig­nage in the me­dian strip on the east side of the road.

■ Rochester Skate Park, which is also part of the monthly Rochester Mar­ket area: grass and ir­ri­gation, foot­paths, pic­nic ta­bles and re­fur­bish­ment to the his­toric bull ring, which is ad­ja­cent to the site.

“Works are now com­plete in Moore Street and the Rochester Skate Park re­serve and once the grass is es­tab­lished, the tem­po­rary fenc­ing will be re­moved,” Cr We­ston said.

“Com­bin­ing the two projects has re­sulted in ac­cess and con­nec­tiv­ity of two fo­cal spa­ces in Rochester to be im­proved.’’

Some ad­di­tional work is also planned in com­ing weeks around the skate park to the fenc­ing and the bull ring, while the tem­po­rary fenc­ing is still in place.

It is ex­pected the tem­po­rary fenc­ing will be re­moved early in the new year.
