About the project

Works to make Berhampore a more attractive, pedestrian friendly village begin late September and are set to finish in November. These works will be undertaken between 7.30am to 5pm Monday-Friday.

The scope for this work includes reasphalting the ground and remodelling the steps and planter walls outside of Sprig and Fern. Additionally, this scope includes reasphalting the footpath along Luxford St and Adelaide Road.

We will also be installing furniture throughout the intersection and updating the pavement around the cabbage trees on Luxford.

Traffic management

Pedestrian access will be maintained around the intersection throughout the works. The footpath around Sprig + Fern will be accessible throughout the works, except for two potential days to finish the final surface layer of asphalt. There will be crew onsite to help vulnerable users access the space where necessary.

Four parking spaces between Sprig + Fern and Mingle Café and Bakery will be occupied for the duration of the works.

JFC are responsible for carrying out these works.
