Council is pleased to advise that line marking, from Dawson Street to McKean Street is now complete. This now finalises stage 1 of this project

Stage 2 is at procurement process stage.

About the Project

Council is aware that road and drainage infrastructure in Moroney Street Bairnsdale doesn’t meet modern community expectations for an urban road. Council is about to commence on works to make improvements and is asking for feedback.

Before physical work on the road begins, Council needs to create a detailed design which shows what work will be done. This project involves upgrading the whole of Moroney Street.

This initial concept includes the construction of a curvi-linear bitumen sealed road with kerb and channel and associated underground drainage. The road is wide; however, we do not plan to have a centre median like some other Bairnsdale streets.

Our proposal is to have parallel parking on both sides of the road for most of Moroney Street, with angle parking near the primary school and day care centre.

Following feedback on the concept design, the detailed design mentioned earlier will be completed. We anticipate the Moroney Street upgrade to be completed in three stages, with one stage being completed each financial year beginning in 2020-21.

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