Our road construction project is now complete.
The construction includes the sealing of approximately 150 metres of road in Adrienne Court and Maxwell Court, Millgrove. The project includes:
- Sealed pavement 5 metres wide for two-way traffic with proposed section of localised narrowing.
- Concrete rollover kerb and channel including replacement of existing barrier kerb
- Connections to existing underground drainage to manage storm water runoff.
- Reinstatement of existing property crossovers to the new road level using a similar material and as close to their current standard as possible.
In 2019 the Federal Government announced a nine year, $150 million funding plan for Yarra Ranges Council to seal roads within the Dandenong Ranges and surrounding areas. This funding program has been named the Roads for the Community Initiative.
Council has prioritised roads that will be constructed through this program to ensure funding is used in a way that will provide maximum benefit to the greatest number of residents and visitors to our area. For information explaining how priority was assigned, please see Roads for the Community FAQ's.
This project has been listed for construction under the Roads for the Community Initiative program and will be facilitated by means of a Special Charge Scheme, whereby landowners and Council form a partnership to fund construction.
