Upgrade for Freshwater/Tavistock intersection
17 February 2020
A $1.19million revamp of the Tavistock/Freshwater Street intersection will start on Tuesday (February 18).
“The project will improve traffic and pedestrian flow through the intersection,” Cr Denis Chapman said.
The project includes widening the culvert crossing in Tavistock Street to improve pedestrian flow, as well as new stormwater drainage pipes and pits.
Tavistock Street between Torquay Road and Freshwater Street will be closed during the project; and Freshwater Street will be reduced to one-way traffic.
“The work will improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety through the intersection which is a key access for parents taking children to the nearby Torquay State School,” Cr Chapman said.
“We anticipated the project will take 16 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
“The works are funded by a $519,000 grant from the Australian Government’s Blackspot Program and Council.”
