Call for seal­ing of Stuhrs Rd

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

A pe­ti­tion pre­sented to Baw Baw Shire has called for a 760 me­tre sec­tion of Stuhrs Rd at Dar­num to be sealed.

The pe­ti­tion, signed by eight peo­ple, asked coun­cil to re­view its road seal­ing sched­ule and pri­ori­tise seal­ing the east­ern end of Stuhrs Rd.

The pe­ti­tion said the un­sealed sec­tion was about 760 me­tres long.

Cr Pe­ter Kos­tos pre­sented the pe­ti­tion to coun­cil last week.

Cr Kos­tos said of the prop­erty own­ers fronting Stuhrs Rd, three res­i­dents had been di­ag­nosed with asthma and an­other four had pre­sented with asthma symp­toms. He said these symp­toms had in­creased over re­cent months with the dry and dusty road con­di­tions.

Cr Kos­tos said cost shar­ing was an op­tion for this project. Of­fi­cers will pre­pare a report to be pre­sented to coun­cil within six weeks.
