San Remo - New Footpath - Shetland Heights Road - COMPLETED

Notice of Works

Council wishes to advise of the construction of a new concrete footpath (Stage 1) along Shetland Heights Road in San Remo, commencing early September 2021.

Stage 1 is about to start week ending 10 September 2021 and is expected to be completed within 3 months, subject to favourable weather, contractor availability and any potential Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the State Government.

Council has appointed Super Paving (Vic.) Pty Ltd as part of our annual supply contracts. The total project budget is in the order of $170,000 and is part of Council Capital Works Program 2021-22. Please see map below.


Shetland Heights Road San Remo New Footpath

Benefits to the Community

  • This project (Stage 1) represents an investment in upgrading our footpath network as part of Council’s Pathways Gap Program and will improve access for pedestrians for the community. These works will give residents along the streets, and the greater area, a safe pedestrian connection to this area and nearby shopping precinct of San Remo.
  • The final stage (Stage 2) will consist of a temporary 2.0 metre wide gravel path connecting from Penniwells Drive (East) to Potters Hill Road new junior school campus. This section of footpath will be undertaken, subject to favourable weather conditions and be completed prior to the opening of the new school, early 2022. We shall keep you posted.

What to Expect

  • Construction of a 1.5 metre fibre reinforced concrete path from Back Beach Road intersection to Penniwells Drive (East) including service adjustments for water, power and Telstra services, and alterations for stormwater pit lids, as required. Where the new path crosses driveways extra depth concrete will be placed.
  • Minor vegetation trimming to allow for the construction of the new footpath.
  • New footpath laybacks at intersections and connection of path to existing bus stop.
  • Some existing driveways (Property numbers No. 64, 62, 60, 54, 52 & 30 Shetland Heights Road) will be replaced with plain reinforced concrete 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.
  • Access to your property 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 them, in advance, of any works affecting access to their properties.
  • Appropriate traffic and pedestrian control measures will be implemented onsite during these works. This will be a construction zone and we appreciate that for your own safety and others that access will be restricted. Our staff and contractor will notify nearby residents, businesses and user groups who may be impacted by these works. We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience and we ask for your patience during these times. Our contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions to recreation reserve users, motorists, schools, residents and businesses.
  • The use of heavy plant and machinery including noisy and vibration works for construction including saw cutting, use of trucks for removal or delivery of materials.
