MOOROOPNA GOLFERS FACE DETOUR AMID ROUNDABOUT WORKS FROM MONDAY

- By Darren Linton

A temporary road closure on Ann St, Mooroopna between O’Brien St and Fairway Dve will be in place from Monday, October 18 until late November.

Constructi­on will take place between 7 am and 6 pm during this time.

Access to Mooroopna Golf Club will be via a detour on Jennings St then onto Fairway Dve, which will temporaril­y carry twoway traffic during the road works.

The works include constructi­on of a new roundabout at the intersecti­on of Elizabeth St and Ann St as well as the upgrade of road pavement renewal works on Elizabeth St.

The constructi­on of a new roundabout at the intersecti­on was identified as a high priority treatment for the initial stage of the Mooroopna Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study.

This LATM was developed in 2020 following community consultati­on in October and November 2019.

Greater Shepparton City Council said feedback from the community highlighte­d concerns from local residents regarding traffic volumes and driver behaviour in the area east of Echuca Rd and north of McLennan St.

Council asks road users to obey traffic management signage and detours for the duration of works and will work closely with the contractor throughout the constructi­on period to address any community concerns.
