What are the roadworks in Stawell?

You might have seen road works happening around Stawell over the past few days. 

The Northern Grampians Shire started grading works after the rain last week, with the rain creating good conditions for grading.  

“We have received several calls about the conditions of some of our unsealed roads and now that we have had some rain we are in a position to do something about it,” Northern Grampians Shire mayor Tony Driscoll said. 

“The break in the weather has meant the graders are out working on the roads.

“The process is much easier during and after rain and saves us a significant amount of money. Grading in the dry costs two to three times more than grading in the wet.” 

Other works occurred on Barnes Street Stawell at the roundabout for the NBN. 

Cr Driscoll urges motorists to “take care, look out for the graders and obey traffic signs to ensure that everyone is safe”.
