Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan today toured the construction site at Pertobe car park, where the car park and pathways will be redeveloped under the Morrison Governments Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
“I commend Warrnambool City Council in using this funding stream to improve the quality, accessibility, and safety of the car park of Lake Pertobe and the adjoining pedestrian pathways and walkways.
“The works will include the reconstruction and strengthening of the car park pavement and formalise the parking areas with safe pedestrian pathways and walkways, creating a safer environment for both road users and pedestrians,” said Mr Tehan.
Accelerating priority projects like Lake Pertobe Road supports jobs, construction businesses and economic growth in Warrnambool, and bolsters the resilience of our local road networks.
Viewing the design plans, Mr Tehan said “he was looking forward to seeking the project completed by November.”
Warrnambool City Council Mayor Cr Vicki Jellie said the car park would improve the experience of visiting Lake Pertobe for visitors and residents.
“I’d like to acknowledge the Australian Government support for the project,” Cr Jellie said.
“It allows us to make more efficient and effective use of the parking space at Lake Pertobe which we know is immensely popular with locals and is one of the drawcards for those visiting our city.”
This project received $425,024 in funding from the Australian Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, with the Warrnambool City Council contributing $74,976.
