The works, enabled by $344,000 in funding from the state government’s Road to Recovery Program, will involve the rebuilding and widening of the road between 50 Settlement Road and 39 Middle Road.
Baw Baw mayor Debbie Brown said in a media release traffic increases due to expanding commercial and industrial developments in the area meant the road needed upgrading.
“Many businesses and property owners that regularly use this road will benefit from the safer, wider and fully sealed road surface, which will no doubt make travelling along the road easier and more enjoyable, especially in poor weather,” Cr Brown said.
“Funding from the Roads to Recovery Program has assisted the council to invest in repairing and improving essential infrastructure and assets that are balanced against the growing needs of the community.”
It is expected the project will be completed by August, so long as weather conditions do not interrupt progress.
Local traffic is presently allowed on the road and a short detour is in place along Saleyards Road and Contour Road.
