Kerang CBD Redevelopment - Stage 2 progressing well
Published on 13 April 2021
Kerang residents and visitors are already benefiting from Stage 2 of the Kerang CBD Redevelopment, with works along Scoresby Street between Albert and Boundary streets recently completed.
The works, which began late last year, involved improving kerb, channel and footpaths, as well as installing a central traffic island.
“The Kerang CBD Redevelopment – Stage 2 aims to improve connections between the Kerang Railway Station and CBD, focusing on Scoresby Street,” Gannawarra Shire Council Chief Executive Officer, Tom O’Reilly said.
“Works already completed, such as increasing the width of the footpath along Scoresby Street between Albert and Boundary streets and installing additional pedestrian crossing points between Scoresby Street and the entrance to the Kerang Railway Station, have created safer options for pedestrians walking between the railway station and CBD.
“Traffic calming measures, including improvements to the Scoresby/Albert street intersection and installation of the central traffic island, will also improve safety for all users of this road, whilst the planting of 16 trees along the central island during the next three weeks will provide shaded areas for many years to come.”

“These improvements along the Scoresby Street section of Kerang’s CBD include the planting of extra trees, installation of bench seating and creating dedicated outdoor seating areas outside the Royal Hotel and Gray’s Bakery,” Mr O’Reilly said.
“Council looks forward to commencing these works later this year, which will provide spaces where residents and visitors can socialise and explore what Kerang has to offer.”
Council will keep residents updated on the Kerang CBD Redevelopment – Stage 2 via its website, Facebook page, Gannawarra News and Gannawarra Connect.
