Greater Shepparton City Council is commencing the revitalization of St Georges Road Retail precinct

The St Georges Road Neighbourhood Plan was first developed in 2015. One of the key priorities within the Community Plan was an improved streetscape for St Georges Road. To improve lighting, car parking and improve the visual landscape along St Georges Road.

The new streetscape will include additional trees and vegetation, new concrete, seating and an improved visual amenity. A concept plan has been developed by Spiire with input from key internal and external stakeholders.

Project Update:

 

March:

St Georges Road revitalisation is progressing well with one side of the road nearing completion. The centre medium strip works have begun and aim to be completed within two weeks.

We do ask residents to please remember to obey the road works signage.

 

26 March Changed traffic conditions – St Georges Road, Shepparton

The St Georges Road Streetscape reconstruction works are continuing and are due for completion in May, 2018.

To complete the works the north bound lane of St Georges Road will be closed from Monday 26th March.

Traffic will be detoured via Hayes Street for the duration of works. Only south bound traffic will be allowed to flow through the intersection during this closure.

The closure will cause a temporary inconvenience in the area and we ask for the community’s compliance with all the traffic management signage.

When will work start and how long will it take?

Works will begin in February 2018 and should be completed by May, 2018. Whilst there can always be issues beyond our control that may delay works such as inclement weather we are working closely with the contractor to ensure the works are completed on schedule.

Commuters using St Georges road will continue to have access, however the contractor will close one lane at a time during works.

Businesses and Residents along St Georges Road will have access to their properties during the work however some access will be via temporary arrangements.
