Broadford Civic Centre updated

Mitchell Shire Council is working with businesses and contractors to continue key accessibility works in Kilmore and maintenance works in Broadford.

While the challenges of COVID-19 remain, Council continues to ensure works are carried out on roads, footpaths, and Council-managed buildings.

The following works are ongoing.

Conway Street, Kilmore

Important safety works to improve pedestrian safety in this busy school precinct continues with drainage works now complete. The work follows new underground electrical infrastructure for future public lightning use as well as road pavement replacement preparations.

The road surface will be replaced over the coming weeks before works start on the new footpaths on both sides of the road. The program of works is subject to weather conditions.

Council reminds drivers to follow traffic management instructions to protect the safety of people using the road and workers on site.

These important upgrade works are jointly funded by the State Government and through Council’s annual capital works program. The works will cost $1.1 million.

Union Street, Kilmore

Works are underway to install a footpath along Union Street between Sydney Street and the Andrew Street bus stop. The upgrades will allow greater pedestrian movement through Kilmore and will help improve accessibility to the centre of town.

As part of the capital works program, Council is continuing to focus on footpaths to reduce the number of missing links.

Mitchell Shire Council’s maintenance team is working alongside local painters to refresh the look of the Broadford Council Chambers. A fresh coat of paint in the Chamber itself and the foyer are expected to be finished this week. A new air conditioning system is also being installed.

Comments from Mayor David Lowe

“We remain committed to improving the safety and accessibility on our roads and footpaths throughout Mitchell Shire. Despite the COVID-19 restrictions, we have been able to continue these essential works and continue to progress a number of maintenance projects across the shire,” he said.

“We have a commitment to improving our Shire as our population grows and as more people want to call Mitchell Shire home. We continue to work to get the job done as safely as possible throughout these restrictions.”
