Demolition works extended in Kilmore

Demolition of the first floor of a heritage listed building at 38 Sydney Street, Kilmore has been extended due to safety concerns with the contractor engaged by the building owner.

Demolition works began on Saturday 8 October and were scheduled to finish on Monday 10 October but were stopped to address safety concerns.

Carparks from 38 to 46 Sydney Street will remain closed to allow the demolition contractor access to the building and room for construction bins to collect debris.

The footpath directly in front of 38 Sydney Street will remain closed, traffic management will continue to be in place to guide pedestrians across the road and around the work site.

The road will be reduced to one lane while the work is happening and traffic speed in the area will stay at the reduced 40km/h.

The Mill Street pedestrian mall will be closed intermittently during the work and will be open when it is safe.

There will also be infrequent stopping of traffic to enable debris bins to be put in place and collected.

Works resumed on Saturday 15 October and are scheduled to be completed on Monday 17 October

For more information, please contact Council on 5734 6200.

Quotes from Mayor Bill Chisholm

While it is disappointing that the works could not be completed on schedule, safety is Council’s most important consideration

The safety concerns with the work being completed by the third party contractor have now been addressed and work is resuming.

We’re very thankful for the patience shown by traders and residents as we complete this project.

Cr Bill Chisholm
