Works to improve Chewton School entrance

Workers out front of Chewton Primary School.

Monday 24 September 2018

These school holidays works are underway to improve pedestrian and vehicle access out the front of Chewton Primary School.

Mount Alexander Shire Council is delivering the project, which will see an upgrade to the bus bay and installation of a new stretch of footpath linking with the carpark and new stairs at the school entrance.

“The project was identified by staff at the Chewton Primary School and local community, and Council was fortunate to secure funding to help cover half the cost of the works,” said Tanya Goddard, Executive Manager Infrastructure, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We’ve planned the major component of the work to be carried out in the school holidays to minimise the disruption to students, parents and staff,” said Ms Goddard.

Motorists are urged to follow traffic signs and take care if driving along Hunter Street. Traffic management is in place as the road is partially closed, so minor delays may occur.

The upgrade is expected to take four weeks. The project team will ensure students and vehicles have safe access the school and car park when the school term commences.

“Term four is the beginning of Walk to School month, which kicks off in October, so we encourage students at Chewton to make the most of the new path and walk, ride or scoot to school,” said Ms Goddard.

The project is jointly funded by Council and Transport Accident Commission (TAC).
