Crossing upgrades for Biggs Drive unlocking opportunity in Wonthaggi

To enable improved accessibility around the Wonthaggi CBD, the pram crossings at the roundabout located at the intersection of Biggs Drive and the Wonthaggi Plaza and Big W carparks will be upgraded this month.

Bass Coast Shire Council is fully funding this $40,000 project, which will get underway from Monday, 7 March and take two weeks to complete.

The project will include the replacement of the existing pram crossings with improved grades for accessibility, kerb and channel and footpath sections on the roundabout’s exits on Biggs Drive and the entrance to the Big W carpark. The project adds to many others that are unlocking opportunities for Wonthaggi as a regional centre.

The works will include the use of large plant and machinery, power tools and trucks delivering materials to site. Council understands that these works may be noisy at times, and present an inconvenience to nearby residents and appreciates their patience during these times.

Appropriate traffic and pedestrian measures will be in place throughout the duration of the works. The contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction.
