Road reconstruc­tion at Willaura


Work to reconstruc­t, widen and reseal a 720-metre section of Delacombe Way, starting from Main Street in Willaura, near Willaura Recreation Reserve, started last week.

The State Government’s Agrilinks Upgrade Program is funding the $478,000 project.

Ararat Rural City Council chief executive Tim Harrison said the Delacombe Way upgrade would make the road safer and more efficient for regional agricultur­al freight.

“Delacombe way is a vital linkage road supporting heavy freight traffic through the south corridor,” he said.

“As works begin on Delacombe Way, motorists might experience delays due to reduced speeds. The road will periodical­ly close and when necessary, a detour will be posted.”

Council crews will be carrying out the project and expect to complete the work, weather permitting, by January.
