Road upgrade at Metcalfe

Heavy vehicle grading rural road.

Wednesday 14 August 2019

Works are underway to reconstruct and widen a 900 metre section of the Metcalfe-Redesdale Road to improve safety for pedestrians and motorists.

The works will more than double the width of the sealed road from 4 metres to 9.2 metres.

“The Metcalfe community requested the road to be widened at a Councillor and Community Forum in 2017. We’re pleased to be able to deliver the project this year,” said Phil Josipovic, Director Infrastructure and Development, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

The road upgrade is near the Metcalfe township from the Kyneton-Metcalfe Road intersection to just beyond Rose Hill Road.

“The changes will give motorists better lines of sight for pedestrians and oncoming vehicles and improve safety by extending barriers at Snodgrass Creek bridge,” said Mr Josipovic.

“We’re also improving drainage in targeted areas along the road and cleaning up existing table drains to improve water run-off,” he said.

The works are underway and are expected to be completed by mid-October, weather permitting.

The team has planned the work to minimise the impact on residents and road users. One lane will remain open for vehicles and access to residential properties will be maintained throughout the works. Traffic signals and signs are in place.
