Shepparton sports precinct set for upgrade

By Shepparton News

Part of an arterial road within Shepparton’s sports precinct will be closed to traffic from today until the end of next month for works.

Construction works on Packham St will start from today and run until Thursday, February 28.

‘‘Road closure will occur on Packham St extension, north of Brauman St within Shepparton Sports City,’’ a Greater Shepparton City Council statement read.

Road closure and detours will be in place while construction works are done, the council advised.

‘‘During this time of construction and sealing of car parks, motorists and the general public are advised to park their vehicles in alternate locations and obey all worksite and advisory signage, including traffic controllers.’’

The council assured that pedestrians would still have access through the Small Pavilion and associated multi-purpose fields.
