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.

In the spirit of National Volunteer Week (21- 27 May 2018), Strathbogie Shire Council would like to acknowledge all of the local volunteers who dedicate their time to benefit the Strathbogie Shire.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said she is constantly blown away by the generosity of local individuals and community groups.

“Our shire may be small in stature but boy we are an active bunch,” Mayor McClaren said.

“It is the ongoing commitment of volunteers that make our communities tick; from the local CFA, Euroa SES and the Euroa Community Cinema, to the Visitor Information Centres and the multitude of community groups and passionate individuals.”

“Volunteers and are absolutely crucial in times of emergency and provide valuable services for residents and visitors alike, generating tourism and economic growth for the region,” Cr McClaren explained.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one you who volunteer in our shire; we wouldn’t be anywhere without volunteers.”

Strathbogie Shire Council is gearing up to appoint a Roads Advisory Committee and is calling on the community for expressions of interest.

The advisory committee will be involved in the development and review of policy and strategy relating to the shire’s road network and the management of roadsides, including road safety issues and initiatives of community benefit.

Three volunteers will be selected to be members of the advisory committee from expressions of interest, alongside two Councillors, two Council staff members and a representative from VicRoads.

Mayor Amanda McClaren said providing quality infrastructure is one of Council’s key priorities outlined in the Council Plan and the shire’s roads are a central part of this.

“Our road network is an area that our community regularly expresses interest in. This was particularly highlight during our Let’s Talk- We’re Listening campaign last year,” Mayor McClaren explained.

“We thought a Roads Advisory Committee would provide the opportunity for greater community involvement in advising on the strategies and policies that guide the management of our roads and roadsides.”
