- Project typeRoads, Streetcapes & Footpaths.
Mornington Peninsula Shire is progressing the development of a road upgrade project for Wilkinson Street and Carmichael Street in Tootgarook.
Wilkinson Street, between Burdett Street and Carmichael Street and Carmichael Street, between Wilkinson Street and Darvell Street has been identified as a high priority site for upgrade under the Roads to Recovery Program.
The Roads to Recovery is a Federal Government program that provides funding to Local Government for renewal and upgrade of roads. The objective of Roads to Recovery is to contribute to the Infrastructure Investment Program through supporting maintenance of the nation’s local road infrastructure asset, which facilitates greater access for Australians and improved safety, economic and social outcomes.
The following works are proposed to assist with the upgrade of Wilkinson Street and Carmichael Street:
- Rehabilitation and upgrade of the existing roadways, including the construction of kerb and channel;
Formalisation of on street parking areas in the vicinity of Tootgarook Primary School;
Installation of appropriate drainage to address the ongoing drainage issues;
The introduction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Carmichael Street and Wilkinson Street;
Installation of traffic calming including raised safety platforms at the existing school crossings and new speed cushions at each approach to the new roundabout; and
- Provision for a new footpath on the western side of Carmichael Street, between Wilkinson Street and the school crossing near Darvall Street.
