Murrindindi Shire Council is pleased to advise that road rehabilitation works on Castella Road, Castella are now complete.

A short section of the road seal was damaged during the October 2022 floods, requiring reconstruction, between Melba Highway and Castella Road Bridge. Castella Road, which needed to be closed for construction work, is now open.

Castella Road is the start of a series of road infrastructure repairs as part of the flood recovery program.

Council is currently preparing five packages of works, approved according to state and federal government funding arrangements, to reinstate road assets across the Shire, which were damaged as a result of the October 2022 flood and storm events. Three of these packages are already out to market through a Request for Quote to Council’s Panel of Contractors. The remaining two packages will also go out to market once they receive final approval from the funding authority.

Funding to undertake the works in Castella was provided through the Disaster Relief Funding Arrangements which is jointly funded by the Australian Government and Victorian Government.

Murrindindi Shire Council’s Mayor John Walsh said “We are pleased to be rolling out repairs on Council road assets across the shire, and continue helping flood impacted communities return to a sense of normality.”
