Wonthaggi - Miners Drive Footpath - Final Stage COMPLETED
Council appointed Super Paving (Vic.) Pty Ltd to carry out the final stage of a new footpath along the west side of Miners Drive, near Brudenhall Terrace and the existing footpath near Beveridge Close, Wonthaggi.
The aim of this project is to improve access for pedestrians and increase the number of footpaths, lanes and pathways for the community. These works will give residents along the streets, and the greater area, a safe pedestrian connection to this area, the proposed new and specialist school through to the main shopping areas within Wonthaggi. These works were funded by Council through the Footpath Gaps Program in the order of $70,000 and is part of Council’s adopted 2019/20 Capital works program.
These works involved:
- Minor vegetation clearing to allow for the construction of the new footpath
- Construction of a 1.5 metre fibre reinforced concrete path and service adjustments for water, power and Telstra services as required.
- Some existing driveways (Property numbers No. 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40 & 44 Miners Drive) will be replaced at no cost to the property owner. The reason for replacement of some driveways is to allow the correct cross fall and match new levels for the path
