A section of footpath in Main Street, Zeehan will be closed to pedestrians to enable repair works to be undertaken.
The section of brick paving, in front of the popular Howard’s Park, has been identified as high risk to pedestrians due to the high volume of use.
Tree roots have caused the pavers to lift, creating trip hazards.
Repairs will commence Monday 14 December and include removal of pavers, cutting and removal of tree roots and relaying of pavers. Works are expected to be completed within two weeks.
“These works continue our focus on reducing, and eliminating where possible, safety hazards in our communities,” West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers said.
Further improvements to footpaths in Zeehan, Rosebery, Tullah and Queenstown will commence in January as part of Council’s 2015-2016 Capital Works Program.
