Works in Euroa address public safety

Wednesday, 23 May, 2018

A variety of works have commenced in Euroa this week to address public safety at a number of busy intersections and locations.

Works at the northern end of Binney Street involve the upgrading and widening of the current traffic island to be made safer for pedestrians.

The pedestrian crossing is being located further back from the intersection to allow vehicles more time to observe crossing pedestrians when turning into Binney Street.

The widening provides for better access, particularly for prams and assisted walking devices.

Works at Binney Street are anticipated to be completed in June 2018.

Director of Community Assets Roy Hetherington said a pedestrian refuge has also been scheduled for construction at Kirkland Avenue near the intersection at Bury Street.

“This part of Kirkland Avenue has been recognised as having high pedestrian usage due to the popularity of the Travellers Rest and the Seven Creeks Park,” Mr Hetherington said.
