May 2017

The 2016/17 footpath replacement programme includes the installation of an asphalt footpath on the northern side of Main Road, Nairne from numbers 93 to 119, and on the southern side from numbers 104 to 124.  Driveway cross overs from the kerb to the property boundary will also be installed.  Trees and shrubs will be trimmed to property boundaries.

There will be some inconvenience regarding access to properties whilst footpath and driveway construction is being carried out.  Some sections of the footpath may be closed at times to facilitate the works and for the safety of workers and road users. All endeavours will be taken to keep the disruption to residents and properties to a minimum.
