Works are on track to implement a number of actions identified in the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan. The works so far have concentrated in the southern half of the Council reserve, including the start of construction of the new roundabout outside the tennis club and the new carpark between the tennis courts and bowling green. This has included bulk earthworks, the installation of underground stormwater drainage and electrical conduits to supply future public lighting, and the construction of retaining walls.
Over the coming weeks, concrete kerb and channel and asphalt pavement will be constructed at the roundabout and new carpark sites, the earth temporarily stored at the southern end of the reserve will be removed and works will shift focus to the widening of the Springvale Road entrance into the reserve.
Currently, the Springvale Road entrance to the reserve remains closed with traffic diversions and signage in place. The Reynolds Road entrance to the reserve remains open and restricted vehicle and pedestrian access arrangements are in place throughout the reserve carpark. Visitors to the reserve are reminded to follow any signage and detours that are in place and to be aware of increased vehicle movements at the reserve.
Subject to favourable weather conditions, it is anticipated that these works within the reserve will be completed during May 2016.
