Upgraded car park reopens for summer

News date:

Council has reopened the upgraded Lake Pertobe Car Park.

The car park offers 126 parking spaces, including four disabled parking spaces, along with improved access to nearby features of Lake Pertobe including barbecues, the playground and Changing Places facility.

The car park was redeveloped with funding of $425,000 from the Commonwealth Government’s Local Roads Community Infrastructure program (LRCI) and $75,000 from Council.

Warrnambool Mayor Cr Richard Ziegeler said the project was finished on time and on budget.

“We’ve reconstructed and strengthened of the car park pavement, formalised the parking areas and added pedestrian pathways, creating a safer environment for both road users and pedestrians,” Cr Ziegeler said.

“It’s a great enhancement of Lake Pertobe which is a much-treasured feature of Warrnambool for residents and visitors.

“The work was delivered by local firm, Duggan Civil, and we acknowledge the support of the Commonwealth Government in getting the project off the ground.”

Member for Wannon Dan Tehan visited the project site in May this year and said then that accelerating priority projects like Lake Pertobe improvements supported jobs, construction businesses and economic growth in Warrnambool, and bolstered the resilience of local road networks.
