Project complete

The new footpath in Main Street Chewton (Pyrenees Highway) is complete.

The footpath works include 880 metres of footpath between Adelaide Street and Railway Street on the southern side of the road and approximately 240 metres on the northern side running east from North Street has been constructed.

The works deliver a smoother surface for people in wheel chairs with tactile ground surface indicators installed to assist vision impaired footpath users navigate the network.

Defined road crossing points have been installed to improve pedestrian safety and an unmonitored (i.e. without traffic signal and zebra crossing) pedestrian crossing point was also constructed near the intersection of the Pyrenees Highway and North Street / Fryers Road.

Council is confident that the improved accessibility and safety of the new footpath and pedestrian crossing point will provide benefit to the local community for years to come and thanks residents and motorists for their patience throughout this project.
