Inverloch - Pavement Improvements - Lohr Avenue - COMPLETED

Notice of Works

Council wishes to advise of the commencement of road pavement improvements and lowering of existing sewer pits along Lohr Avenue, Inverloch in May 2021. See map below.

Council has appointed SR Excavations Pty Ltd as part of our annual supply contract in partnership with South Gippsland Water Authority. The total project cost is in the order of $175,000 which is fully funded by Council under the Road renewal program. This project is about to start week of 10 May 2021 and is anticipated to be completed in seven (7) weeks.

Council recognises that it can be a challenge to deliver the necessary works and not affect the residents and road users, especially when much of our work is determined by favourable weather conditions, contractor availability and any potential Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the State Government.
