Infrastructure works in Myrtleford travelling well

KEY infrastructure works in Myrtleford are progressing well, with the Myrtleford Open Space, Ovens River Loop Trail construction and Memorial Hall re-roofing among the projects to be completed in coming months.

Council’s Manager Project Delivery John Carter said a number of key projects were travelling on schedule, providing assets for the community and visitors to enjoy.

“The sealing of the Myrtleford-Stanley Road is moving ahead and the project remains on time and on budget,” he said.

“The lower base of local crushed rock is complete and contractors GW&B Crameri are now laying new culvert pits and a 50mm layer crushed rock in preparation for seal in early May.

“The Myrtleford-Stanley road remains open to local traffic and once completed in June it will be a great sealed touring route between the Alpine and Indigo Shires.”

The Myrtleford Loop Trail project is also progressing on time and budget, with two bridges and ramps in place and ramp handrails and decking currently being laid.

“This project is a great one for the town, providing a fantastic recreation trail for visitors and locals alike to enjoy,” Mr Carter said.

In a boost to Myrtleford recreation, Mr Carter said the main components of the Myrtleford Savoy Soccer Club upgrade were complete.

“Lights were recently fitted to new poles and tested at night by Bright Electrical Services, showing club representatives their fantastic new lighting for night matches on the second pitch,” he said.

“This follows completion of major ground works, automatic irrigation and deep rock water bore.

“Soccer holds a special place in the hearts of many Myrtleford residents and it’s only fitting for the club to have quality grounds and lighting.”

Re-roofing of the Myrtleford Memorial Hall and Supper Room is moving ahead well and hardscaping works at the Myrtleford Open Space are also proceeding on time, due to be completed in time for La Fiera Festival on May 25 - 27.
