Works on Stage 2 of the Rushworth Streetscape project are now complete.

Campaspe Shire Mayor, Cr Rob Amos acknowledged the patience and perseverance of the Rushworth community during the seven-month construction period.

“The works on High Street are basically complete. A second road seal will be applied later this year or early next year in the warmer months, to fully finish the project. Of course, we will inform residents as these works are happening and keep you updated.

“The streetscape compliments the historic beauty of Rushworth effortlessly and will serve the community through their monthly markets and renowned Easter Heritage Festival.

“It’s been a big project, broken up into stages to minimise impacts on the community. I’m really thankful and proud of the community for their understanding throughout the works,” Cr Amos added.

Waranga Ward Councillor, Adrian Weston commented on the great range of projects happening in Rushworth and surrounding areas.

“It’s wonderful to see the streetscape on High Street completed. It’s just one of the many projects happening in Rushworth right now.

“Residents can also look forward to the new amenities at Lions Park, which are now also open. Just outside the amenities, the gravel will be repaved to include disabled parking and lighting in the works.

“The Rushworth Murchison Rail Trail project has also started, with works expected to be completed later this year.

“We appreciate the community’s support and patience through the entire duration of works in Rushworth,,” Cr Weston said.

Over the next few weeks, Council will be seeking feedback on the communication and project delivery of these works. Please pick up a hardcopy survey from the Rushworth Service Centre or have your say online.
