IMPROVED connectivity between the Myrtleford business precinct and Jubilee Park as well as improved safety at the Standish Street and Great Alpine Road intersection have been listed as priorities for the Alpine Shire’s Better Places project.
Last Thursday Myrtleford residents had the chance to provide feedback on the project at workshops held by representatives from MDG Landscape Architects who will complete the project designs.
Alpine Shire Council director assets Charlie Bird said the Myrtleford workshop was well attended and local residents had plenty of positive feedback on the ideas put forward.
“The two main projects discussed would see better and safer access for people to cross the Great Alpine Road in the centre of town,” he said.
“These are two things that local residents have wanted to see done for a while and from all reports they were very supportive of the projects and really keen to hopefully see those works in the coming years.”
“MDG have traffic engineers in their team and that is really essential for these two particular items due to the fact they are both based around a major road.”
