From Monday 28 August 2023, the intersection of Moroney Street and Taylor Street, Bairnsdale, will have a significant change.

Taylor Street traffic will no longer have right of way, with Give-way Line Marking installed for traffic direction.

Moroney Street will have the right of way.

Appropriate signage, including ‘Changed Traffic Conditions’ regulatory signage will be installed in the coming days.

As well as Line Marking and Signage, the Taylor Street intersections approaches will have two x Flat Top Road Humps installed, to pacify motorists’ approach to the intersection (like the McCulloch Street intersection).

These changes have been recognised as appropriate measures, through a ‘Road Safety Audit’ undertaken during the design of the Moroney Street upgrade (3 Stages).




About the Project

Council is improving the road and drainage infrastructure in Moroney Street, Bairnsdale.

The overall objective is to upgrade Moroney Street with a consistent seal width, new underground drainage, kerb and channel, footpath installation as required, parking lanes, tree planting and upgrades to all intersections to improve road safety.

This project involves upgrading the whole of Moroney Street and will be completed in three stages.

There is no cost to residents or property owners for this project.

Stage 1 – Dawson Street to McKean Street

Stage 1 completed May 2022

Stage 2 - McKean Street to Birchwood Court

Works are expected to begin in early November 2022 and continue through until July 2023. Cranes Asphalting and Bitumen Pty Ltd have been awarded the tender to undertake these construction works.

Stage 3 – Birchwood Court to Riley Street

Works are expected to begin in late 2023/early 2024 with the current progress at design stage. Council will provide relevant updates through the ‘Your Say’ page as Stage 3 progresses through to Tender and Construction.
