Bet­ter places update

Myrtleford Times - - Front Page -

ALPINE Shire Coun­cil is invit­ing res­i­dents to learn more about the sec­ond stage of Myrtle­ford’s Alpine Bet­ter Places up­grade.

Fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of the round­about at the Stan­dish and Myr­tle Streets in­ter­sec­tion ear­lier this month, de­tails of stage two of the project will be pro­vided dur­ing a meet­ing at the Myrtle­ford Li­brary from 5.30pm – 6.30 pm on Thurs­day.

“The de­sign is well un­der­way, and we’re keen to share more in­for­ma­tion and hear com- mu­nity feed­back,” coun­cil’s act­ing man­ager as­set de­vel­op­ment Francine Stacey said.

“We will present the doc­u­mented de­signs, out­line the tim­ing and du­ra­tion of the works, and an­swer any ques­tions any­one may have.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­nity mem­bers to hear the lat­est on the project.”

The $2.28 mil­lion project will see an over­haul of both sides of Myr­tle Street be­tween the new round­about and Lewis Av­enue.

The Myr­tle Street toi­lets will be up­graded and Ju­bilee Park will be re­worked to create a more us­able pub­lic space.

The project in­cludes the con­struc­tion of a pic­nic shel­ter and view­ing plat­form, as well as ad­di­tional seat­ing.

The road it­self will be up­graded and re­con­fig­ured to make it safer for all road users, and trees will be planted along both sides of the road.

“The plan is to start con­struc­tion in spring this year, pause works over the Christ­mas and New Year break, then con­tinue again in late Jan­uary 2019 fol­low­ing the hol­i­day pe­riod,” Ms Stacey said.

“Over­all con­struc­tion du­ra­tion is around five months.”

Any­one who can­not make the meet­ing can drop-in to the Myrtle­ford Li­brary meet­ing room be­tween 4pm and 5.30pm on Thurs­day to view the lat­est de­signs and talk to the project team.

Copies of the plans will also be avail­able at the Myrtle­ford Li­brary, and un­der ma­jor projects on coun­cil’s web­site.
