Watt Rd in Kialla will be closed for two months from January 29 to March 29 to repair the road and better prepare for floods in the future.
Greater Shepparton City Council is asking residents and road users for their patience during the works, which may lead to shorter road closure times in future floods.
“There will be some short term pain for the longer term gain,” Greater Shepparton City Council Director Infrastructure Steve Bowmaker said.
“The works will minimise future flood damage and road safety will be improved through better line marking and the removal of five trees close to the edge of the road.”
The work will include upgrades and renewal of drainage culverts under the road, strengthening of the road pavement, and some low-lying areas of the road will be lifted.
“This work will form part of a long term strategy to upgrade the well-used Watt Road local detour,” Mr Bowmaker said.
The project is expected to cost around $500,000 and which will come from the Federal Government Natural Disaster Relief Fund and Council funds.
Variable Message Signs will assist traffic in finding alternative routes, and Council has contacted the owners of all properties abutting the works.
“Council will be working to ensure that residents and road users are given adequate warning about the road closures, and we do ask for everyone’s patience as we undertake this important project,” Mr Bowmaker said.
