Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes announced on Monday, 20 February that the State Government will commit $500,000 towards the Porepunkah Alpine Better Places Project.
Works to upgrade Porepunkah’s Town Centre will commence this week (Monday, 20 February).
We invite you to come along to hear about the staging of project works, at either of the following sessions:
A Public Information Meeting will be held at the Porepunkah Pub, from 5 – 6 pm on Wednesday 22 February.
The project team will provide an update on the proposed works and the construction contractor will also present the anticipated staging of the works. This is your opportunity to hear the latest on the project, ask questions and give us your feedback on the proposed construction staging.
If you cannot make it to the meeting, you can also drop-in to the Punkah Pantry, between 2:30 and 4:30pm on Wednesday 22 February, to view the latest plans and talk to the project team.
Construction will commence within the service lane between the general store and the pub. Demolition of the existing kerb and pavements will be undertaken first, followed by construction of the newly aligned kerbs and driveways. The service lane will be closed within this section during the works, however access to the general store, Punkah Pantry and the bus stop will remain open. Traffic and pedestrian management will be in place to control access to the two homes between the general store and the pub.
For your own safety, please comply with all signage and do not enter the construction areas.
There will be increased noise, heavy vehicle traffic, disruptions and detours in the Porepunkah town centre throughout the duration of the works. We understand these works will cause inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this time.
