Sealing works on Glen Road, Station Street and Garden Street in Cockatoo and Innes Road, Russell Road, Gembrook Road service lane and Blackwood Lane in Gembrook are now complete.

The works were part of Cardinia Shire Council’s Better Local Roads – Sealing the Hills program.   

Upgrade works included pavement construction, kerb and channel, traffic calming devices, drainage works, signage and line-marking.   

Minor works are still being completed on Baker Street, Cockatoo and Redwood Rd service lane, Gembrook and are expected to be finalised before the end of 2023.

Ranges Ward Cr Jeff Springfield was pleased to see these three special charge scheme packages completed.

“Road sealing projects like these play a significant role in building a better Cardinia and help to improve the lives of residents living within the Hills and surrounding townships,” Cr Springfield said.

“Upgrading unsealed roads through our Better Local Roads program improves community safety, liveability and access to amenities and emergency services, while reducing dust, pollution and maintenance issues.”

The council thanked residents for their patience and support during construction and reminded the community to continue to drive safely.
