The site is on the bank adjacent to the Wangaratta levee. The works will consist of the placement of rock armouring on the bank directly behind the Officeworks complex on Parfitt Road.

During these works a speed reduction zone will be in place on the Great Alpine Road at the Peruzzo Street intersection. The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists during the works.  However, temporary exclusion fencing will be installed adjacent to Rail Trail and public access to the work site will not be  permitted.  These measures are required to ensure works are delivered in a safe and timely manner for contractors and the public.

A limited amount of existing vegetation will be removed to allow safe access to the river bank by machinery for construction. Revegetation will occur at the conclusion of works, once conditions are suitable for planting.
