View Street upgrades close to completion

-

WORKS on View Street, Mansfield, are close to completion.

The redevelopm­ent includes approximat­ely 7908 square metres of new sealed pavement for road and carpark constructi­on, road reconstruc­tion and constructi­on of a new roundabout.

Works undertaken by local contractor Alpine Civil include road formation widening, earthworks, reforming roadside drains, installing new concrete kerb and channel, and new concrete footpaths, provision of undergroun­d drainage and culverts, and new sealed road pavement.

These works have been complement­ed by landscapin­g and tree planting undertaken by council’s parks and gardens team.

The redevelopm­ent works provide safer, more modern and updated residentia­l infrastruc­ture.

Mayor Mark Holcolmbe said the project was part of building community access to the new dual court stadium constructe­d in partnershi­p with the Mansfield Secondary College.

“The View Street upgrade represents an incredible amount of work that will benefit the community for many years to come,” said Cr Holcombe.

The existing intersecti­on between Highett Street and View Street has been upgraded to a roundabout, allowing safer access to the stadium and managing increased traffic to the area.

The final stage of the project includes line marking of the new pavement and bus bay works near the Mansfield Rudolph Steiner School.

New solar street lighting and final landscapin­g works will be completed by the end of the year.

Funding of $360,000 was contribute­d by the Victorian Government’s Fixing Country Roads Program.

It is anticipate­d that the total cost for the View Street upgrade will come in well under budget at around $2m.
