Oak Street works about to start

Important reconstruction and resurfacing works will start on Oak Street, Seymour, from Monday 24 February

The northbound lane of Oak Street, between Anzac Avenue and Wimble Street, will be reconstructed and finished with a new asphalt surface. The works will improve safety for the more than 2000 vehicles that use the road every day.

Additional drainage pits will be installed to improve drainage in the area, while the existing kerb and channel will be replaced.

During construction, the northbound lane will be closed with full traffic management in place and a diversion established along Delatite Road and Wimble Street for vehicles travelling northbound.

The works are being managed by Mitchell Shire Council are expected to be completed by 15 May, weather permitting.

While there may be some minor delays, vehicles will still be able to move through the area. Council reminds drivers to adhere to the instructions of traffic management for your safety and the safety of road workers.

This $580,000 project is funded through the Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery program. Phase one of the project was completed in 2019.

“With more than 2000 vehicle movements on Oak Street, it is one of Seymour’s busiest roads. Ensuring safety on our roads is a top priority for Council so the work to upgrade Oak Street will create a smoother and safer road for users as well as meeting future growth needs,” he said.
