Greater Shepparton City Council (Council) will prepare draft concept designs and costings for Stages 5 and 6 of the Welsford Street Upgrade.

The Welsford Street Upgrade seeks to cater for Welsford Street’s role as a busy north-south arterial road by improving traffic flow, safety and amenity for vehicles and pedestrians.

Stages 1, 2 and 3 have already been completed, and service relocation works to support construction for Stage 4 is expected to commence in late 2022 and is expected to take 3 to 4 months to complete.

Stages 5 and 6 seek to upgrade the route from south of the Fryers Street intersection to the Wyndham and Sobraon Streets intersection.

Council is undertaking pre-draft consultation between 25 July and 26 August 2022 with landowners, occupiers of land, and other key stakeholders in order to identify any issues and opportunities associated with the upgrading of Welsford Street.

This will assist in the preparation of draft concept designs and costings for the upgrade of these two stages later in 2022.

More information about these projects can be found on Council’s website.
