Chewton footpath upgrade

Project update

As part of Council’s commitment to maintaining and upgrading our footpath network to ensure accessibility throughout the shire, a section of footpath in Chewton is being replaced and new sections are being constructed.

Construction began on Wednesday 10 March 2021 with work expected to be completed in May 2021, weather permitting.

To undertake these works in a safe and efficient manner traffic management will be required - care will be taken to minimise the impact to residents and local businesses.

Council apologises for any inconvenience that these works may cause.

We are 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.

This project has received funding from the 2020 TAC Local Government Grant Program.


The path alignment is indicated in the map below in red.

Located along Main Street Chewton (Pyrenees Highway), the project includes construction of 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.

An unmonitored (i.e. without traffic signal and zebra crossing) pedestrian crossing point will also be constructed near the Chewton General Store at the intersection of Pyrenees Highway and North Street / Fryers Road.
