Greater Shepparton City Council commenced an upgrade of Welsford Street on 6 March 2017. The project will be undertaken in stages, with Stage One works anticipated to be substantially completed by the end of October.

Stage 1 works commenced in March and will take place along Welsford Street between Nixon Street to Knight Street, with Mawson Constructions Pty Ltd undertaking the works.

Stage 2 works will include signalising the intersection of Welsford Street and Nixon Street, and will be undertaken along with Stage 1 works by Mawson Constructions Pty Ltd.

Stage 3 works will include upgrade from Welsford Street around to the Knight Street intersection to supply and install drainage, upgrade road pavement and new pavement.

What the works include

  • Preliminary works including site establishment, location of services, traffic management set up and setting out.
  • Supply and install drainage.
  • Excavate and install tree cells.
  • Excavate the road pavement and dispose offsite.
  • Supply and lay kerb and channel and concrete path.
  • Supply, lay and compact new pavement in layers.
  • Supply, lay and compact spray seal / asphalt.
  • Supply and installation of signals and associated infrastructure.
  • Reinstatement of line-marking, furniture and driveways to private properties.
  • Tidy road reserve, nature strips and as built drawings.

Road Closures

North bound traffic will be open through Welsford Street. Just past Nixon Street, traffic travelling north is diverted to flow on the east side of the street to allow for drainage, tree cell construction and pavement excavation works to occur on the west side of the street. 

Welsford Street is closed to south bound traffic, and south bound traffic will detour via Wyndham Street (Goulburn Valley Highway) and Nixon Street.

Access to businesses and residences along the street is being maintained and the closure will facilitate works to occur safely for all in the area.
