A SECTION of Verney Road is expected to be closed to traffic until March 31 this year, while stage one works are carried out to upgrade drainage.
The works, which are taking place between Ford Road and Hawkins Street, have already seen the replacement of two gas supply pipelines crossing Verney Road, allowing for the drainage works to continue.
Being undertaken by Mawson Constructions Pty Ltd, stage one of the works include new underground drainage to construct new storm water drainage along the road centre line, road pavement construction, hotmix asphalt, concrete works, line-marking and furniture.
Greater Shepparton City Council Director of Infrastructure, Steve Bowmaker, said, “The works are progressing well and are currently on schedule; however delays to the works may occur if we experience inclement weather, such as heavy rain.”
