Greater Shepparton City Council is advising residents and businesses that a tree on the roundabout at the intersection of Corio and Vaughan Sts will need to be removed early tomorrow morning.

Goulburn Valley Water investigations revealed a large water leak in the roundabout, which has undermined the structural root zone of the tree.

Contractors began removing the tree early this morning, with Goulburn Valley Water set to complete the repair of the leak following the removal.

“It’s important to conserve trees when we can, but this was a tree that was already earmarked for removal as part of the Vaughan Street redevelopment,” said Council’s Director Infrastructure Steve Bowmaker.

“The water leak had turned it into a safety hazard.

“The removal will take place as quickly as possible to minimise interruption to morning traffic. Commuters may wish to avoid that intersection in the morning.”
