Nagambie Angle Parking Project to commence

Monday, 23 July, 2018

After significant planning, including community consultation and approvals from the relevant authorities, Council is pleased to be starting the Nagambie Angle Parking project. 

The project is scheduled to commence towards the end of July and will include new kerb outstands, parking signage and line marking to make way for angle parking from the Goulburn Street roundabout to the Vale Street intersection.

Parallel parking will remain unchanged on the centre median strip side of High Street both north and south bound.

The angle parking aims to have a traffic calming effect, with a reduction to a single traffic lane in both north and south bound directions, providing the old left traffic lane space for reversing out of parks and merging into the traffic lane.  

It will also make way for an additional 17 parking spaces on High Street, including more disabled parking spaces.

There will be a reduction in speed limit from 50 to 40 kilometres per hour and Marie Street will become a one-way street through the centre median area to improve traffic flow.

Strathbogie Shire Council CEO Steve Crawcour said Council is looking forward to going ahead with the project having now received VicRoads approval and appreciates the community’s patience in what has been a lengthy process.

“We are excited to finally be able to deliver angle parking to Nagambie’s High Street and we thank the community for their input and direction during the extensive consultation process, including listening posts, submissions and guidance from the Nagambie Parking Community Working Group,” Mr Crawcour said.

“We will again call on our community for their ongoing patience with the construction phase, which we will complete as efficiently and quickly as possible to minimise disruption.”

Mr Crawcour said the angle parking will make for a safer and more accessible main street and is a good move for the local business district.

“Angle parking will not only improve traffic flow and parking capacity, it will also improve the visual appeal of the main streetscape,” he said.
