The Central Murray Regional Library parking area in Napier St is receiving an upgrade this week.
The bitumen parking spaces have been ripped up and are being reconstructed by Deni Works staff.
Deni Works manager Jim Grant says the project is part of council’s maintenance program.
‘‘It’s a section of pavement that needs replacing and the funds were recently allocated by council so we could go ahead with it,’’ he said.
‘‘Because it’s near the central part of town it gets noticed more but this is just part of our regular works.
‘‘It’s important that it was fixed, especially because of the number of elderly people that visit the library.
‘‘We are also planning another section of works in Napier St outside the Peppin Heritage Centre.’’
Library officer Ariane Fehring said it would be a major improvement to the venue.
‘‘I know it’s been on their to-do list for quite a while. It will be a lot better because the road had risen and created an uneven surface.’’
The work was expected to be completed this week.
