Kerb and Pit Renewal Program 2020-21 - Bass Coast Shire

We wish to advise that Infrastructure Delivery team has appointed SR Excavations Pty Ltd to undertake sections of kerb and pit renewal works as part of 2020-21 Capital Works program. These works are being rolled out on our road network in Wonthaggi and Inverloch during October 2020.

Kerb and pit renewal works are needed to minimise the level of maintenance required in repairing road pavement’s due to loss of function in drainage infrastructure. The kerb and pit renewal works will ensure that stormwater flows freely to our underground drainage network. The projects listed below are also linked to our asphalt and spray sealing renewal program (further information to be provided) which will start from November 2020 to February 2021.

The kerb and pit renewal program will start early October and expected to be completed by end of October, weather permitting. These works are fully funded by Council in the order of $65,000.

As part of these works, new concrete may be placed through landowner’s driveways. Access to their properties will be restricted for a four-day period following from when the concrete is poured. This is required to allow the concrete to set properly before any vehicles can use the driveway. Our contractor will advise residents, in advance, of any works affecting access to their properties.

Council acknowledges that it can be a challenge to deliver the necessary works and not affect road users, especially when much of the work is determined by weather conditions and the availability of contractors. It is expected that there will be some delays to traffic during the works period. Contractors will take all necessary steps to minimise delays to road users. Our contractor will notify nearby residents and businesses that may be impacted by these works. Appropriate traffic control measures will be implemented onsite during these works.

We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience to these landowners and we have asked for their patience during these times.

Listed below are the streets to be improved by the kerb and pit renewal works;

White Road – From North Wonthaggi Pre-school to George Street - Wonthaggi

McKenzie Street – From Graham Street to Miners Drive - Wonthaggi
