ROAD CLOSURE - Sandford Road Upgrade

  • Project typeRoad Upgrade
  • Completion Date30 June 2021

Council is currently completing road works on Sandford Road, Wangaratta. The road is being upgraded to improve drainage, widen the road, install kerb and channel and provide a new smoother surface.

Upgrade works began last week with a partial road closure in place for south bound traffic, however the site had to be shut down due to a number of near misses. Vehicles were ignoring the signage and driving around the temporary barriers and road closed signs, putting themselves, other motorists and workers at risk.

Following consultation with Worksafe and our Contractor, Council has decided the only way to complete the job safely is to temporarily close Sandford Road from Tone Road to Prestige Lane. The road closure will begin on Tuesday, 6 April 2021 and is expected to stay in place until late June 2021.

 A detour will be in place directing vehicles to use Tone Road and Sisely Avenue to complete their journeys. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
