Liebig Street to reopen to northbound traffic

News Article Date: 
Wednesday, 12 July 2017

A significant milestone in the City Centre Renewal is approaching, with Liebig Street between Koroit Street and Raglan Parade expected to reopen to northbound traffic by the end of July.

Weather permitting, sub-contractor Fulton Hogan will pour the structural asphalt layer on behalf of 2Construct along the 350m stretch of Liebig Street on July 24 and 25.

Warrnambool City Council Director City Infrastructure Scott Cavanagh said that this would be one of the final major construction steps to be completed before works shifted primarily to the eastern side of the street.

“I would like to stress that the road surface laid in July will not be the final surface,” he said.

“In order to achieve an even and consistent finish, the final topcoat of asphalt will be applied to both sides of Liebig Street at the conclusion of works later this year.

“The surface will be trafficable, though there may be lips, pooling or other imperfections which will be resolved once the final topcoat is applied.

“With the bluestone kerbing installed, most of the paving complete, the new trees planted and northbound traffic to resume soon, visitors to the city centre can begin to get an impression of what the completed streetscape will look like and how it will function.”

As well as being open to traffic, on-street parking on the western side of Liebig Street will also resume, with temporary bays to be marked out.

The $15 million City Centre Renewal Project is equally funded by the Federal Government, the State Government and the Warrnambool City Council.
