Roadworks to commence on Ferguson Road

By Laura Briggs

Roadworks on Ferguson Rd, between Tatura and Mooroopna, start tomorrow.

Greater Shepparton City Council advised motorists to expect delays when travelling between 7 am to 7 pm from tomorrow, with works expected to be completed by mid-October, and encouraged drivers to seek an alternative route when possible.

Acting director infrastructure Craig Exton said the road was brought to council’s attention following a recent road condition survey.

‘‘As part of council’s road condition assessment, Ferguson Rd was identified as requiring bitumen resurfacing and remediation works,’’ he said.

‘‘The works will consist of stabilisation repairs along Ferguson Rd, prior to resurfacing later this year, and asphalt intersection upgrades at the Downer Rd and Turnbull Rd intersections.

’’Council asked drivers to obey all work-site and advisory signage and be aware of detours."
