Upgrade and improvement works on Welsford and Nixon Streets intersection commence this week

Greater Shepparton City Council is commencing work on the intersection of Welsford and Nixon Streets on Wednesday 27 September.

Contractors will commence works on Nixon Street in the area immediately east and west of Welsford Street (shown in green on the map to the side). The works will continue for three weeks.  

Greater Shepparton City Council Manager Projects Dylan Hesselberg said those with caravans and trailers wanting to access the Visitor Centre opposite the Queens Gardens can still access the caravan parking zone.

“Business operators have been notified of the timing. We apologise for any inconvenience and ask the community to comply with all traffic management signage for their own safety, that of pedestrians, other travellers and road workers.”

“When all stages of the Welsford Street works are finished we will have a much improved road that allows traffic travelling north/south to bypass the city centre,” he said.
