Marshall Street Mid Block Crossing Works

Marshall Street Mid Block Crossing Concept



What is the project all about?

Council is committed to providing a main street that is both functional and attractive.  Disabled access is a critical component of this commitment and this project is designed to provide effective disable car parking spaces as well as a convenient crossing point for pedestrians with limited mobility.

How will the interruption affect me?

To minimise the impact on motorists & local businesses, works will be completed in stages as follows:

  • Stage 1 will include the construction of the central crossing on the South side  of Marshall Street as detailed below.  Parking bays will be closed on the Southern side.
  • Stage 2 will include the construction of gardens, block walls and footpath on  the South side of Marshall Street. Parking bays will be closed on the Southern side.
  • Stage 3 will include the construction of the central crossing on the North side of Marshall Street.  Parking bays will be closed on the Northern side.
  • Stage 4 will include the construction of gardens, block walls and footpath on  the North side of Marshall Street. Parking bays will be closed on the Northern side.

During construction traffic travelling along the affected side of Marshall Street may experience short delays at times.

Council staff and Contractors will be working extended hours and will make every effort to keep disruptions to a minimum.

What arrangements are going to be made for pedestrians?

Pedestrian access past the job and to adjacent shops will be maintained throughout the construction period.

When will the work take place?

Work on the Southern side of Marshall Street is nearing completion.  The jobsite will move to the Northern side of Marshall Street mid February.
