LOWES MOUNT ROAD UPGRADE

Progress continues on the upgrade to Lowes Mount Road. Heavy equipment has continued to remove crests and reshape and widen the road as far a Gilholmes Road. Additional drainage modifications have also been completed. Next week gravelling will continue from Black Bullock Road to Gilholmes Road. This works project is part of a program which will see Lowes Mount Road reshaped and resealed from Mutton Falls to Albion Street over the next two years. This work is funded using $7.5 million in grant funds from the state government under the Growing Local Economies scheme as well as $400,000 of ratepayers funds.
