THE contract for works including underground pipe works from Benalla Road south to Greater Shepparton City Council’s retardation basin on Doyles Road has been awarded to Mawson’s Construction.
The next stage of the roundabout upgrade began this week, with plans to have drainage works completed by the end of March this year.
The works will also include expanding the existing retardation basin to provide a future wetland system to treat the stormwater from the catchment.
It is expected there will be some traffic delays and detours during this period, primarily due to the VicRoads roundabout duplication works.
Greater Shepparton City Council Director Infrastructure, Steve Bowmaker said, “The works are for the future development of the Doyles Road and Benalla Road roundabout and to provide a high capacity drainage spine for the Shepparton East catchment.”
