Macedon Street works planned


Macedon Street is set to receive a facelift with resurfacing works confirmed for next month.

At a council meeting held last week a letter from the Minister for Road Ben Carroll was tabled detailing the roadworks.

The Sunbury stretch of Macedon Street between Powlett Street and 50 metres northwest of O’Shannassy Street will be resurfaced as part of the state government’s 2021/22 works program.

Cr Jack Medcraft said he was pleased to see the project prioritised after years of advocacy.

“I’ve been complaining about this disastrous road [for years] and… a number of residents have certainly been vocal and come up with it and I’ve taken their concerns up directly to the minister,” he said.

“I’m happy with it. I think it’s fantastic.”

Cr Medcraft said he had confirmed with Mr Carroll that the works will begin in the first two weeks of November.

In other correspondence received by council a letter from Sunbury MP Josh Bull confirmed Sunbury Downs College will receive seating at its bus shelter on Mitchell’s Lane.
