Halls Gap works underway

Preparation for stage one of a Halls Gap Action Plan is underway, with work set to start on the northern end of School Road this week.
The action plan will guide where Northern Grampians Shire council invests money within the Halls Gap village centre and which work it prioritises to better position the town as a world-class tourist destination.
Four priority projects within the plan will receive funding following a $1-million State Government funding announcement in May.
The four projects are the Stoney Creek boardwalk; Grampians Road raised pedestrian crossing; Southern Gateway Enhancement; and School Road improvements.
The council has appointed nine Halls Gap community members to a reference group to help in the project’s design phase. The members will provide their perspective on the design details to ensure the plans are in-line with community expectations.
Halls Gap ward councillor Jason Hosemans said council staff had worked extensively with the group, particularly to finalise plans for works on School Road, aimed at improving pedestrian and cycle safety on the road.
He said work on the other priority projects was due to start shortly.
“With nine representatives from a range of interest groups within the Halls Gap community, we have been getting very good input into the project with changes to the initial plans having already been made after consultation with the reference group,” he said.
