Notice of Works

Bass Coast Shire Council has appointed local contractor Super Paving (Vic.) Pty Ltd under our annual supply contract to carry out modification works to some footpath crossing points in Wonthaggi. See map below.

Construction works are anticipated to start week ending 25 June 2020 and expected to be completed within 2-3 weeks, subject to favourable weather, supplier and material availability and any potential State Covid-19 restrictions. These works are funded by Council through footpath renewal program in the order of $45,000 and is part of Council’s 2020/21 Capital Works Program.
