Stage two of the Euroa Saleyards roof project is in full swing, with the installation of steel columns and trusses for an 1800m2 roof extension.
The successful contractor for these works is Don Newnham Engineering of Euroa.
This company also undertook the successful stage one project in 2015.
Strathbogie Shire has received $500,000 from Regional Development Victoria, with Council contributing $25,000.
The project will provide shade and protection from the elements for both cattle and clients, enhancing the saleyards’ standing and competitiveness in the region – and ultimately its longevity and economic benefits.
Prior to the roof extension, the overhead power lines were relocated to Boundary Road North and as well as some laneway improvements.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said Council was pleased with the progression to stage two of the saleyards roof project.
"This significant project will make conditions much more comfortable for both the livestock and the people working at the saleyards," she said.
"This project supports the Euroa Saleyards as one of our significant and competitive economic drivers in our region."
It is expected the project will be complete by late April 2017.
