Published: 27 August 2019

Council expects works could recommence on Stage 1 road sealing at Kenilworth Avenue, Beaconsfield, from early September, following an agreement being reached between the contractor and the developer.

Cardinia Shire Council’s General Manager Infrastructure and Environment, Peter Benazic, said Council understands the community’s frustration with the delay of this project, and has been doing everything in its ability to foster an agreement between the two parties.

“We are encouraged that an agreement has been reached, and are hopeful works will recommence as advised, from early September, pending traffic management approvals from the road authorities.

“Meanwhile, Council has also been working towards the construction of Stage 2 of Kenilworth Avenue between the overpass and Coach House Lane, with the intention these works would be undertaken at the same time as Stage 1.

“Again, we fully appreciate the community’s frustration with the delay in Stage 1 works, and will be continue to work closely with both the developer and contractor, as well as progressing Council’s plans for Stage 2 in an effort to finalise this much-needed road project,” Mr Benazic said.
