Foster Laneway construction begins

Foster’s main laneway is set for a major upgrade

SOUTHGippsland Shire Council will be commencing works on a new undercover structure in the laneway between the Foster Fish Shop and Foodworks on  April 9, 2018.
Considine and Johnston will be undertaking the works which will take approximately nine weeks to complete.
During the work period the laneway will be closed for public access at all times. The community will need to use alternative routes to access the central business district from the rear carpark.
The works are part of the Foster Streetscape Project that has upgraded parking, drainage, landscaping and street furniture as well as creating more opportunities for pedestrians to cross Main Street.
South Gippsland Shire Council’s Coordinator of Engineering Paul Challis has spoken about the works.
“This is just one of the projects Council has for Foster to help improve the streetscape and visual appeal of this beautiful town.
“We trust the works proceed with minimal disruptions and we thank the community for their ongoing patience with the works,” said Mr Challis
