November 2016

The main construction work on Todd Bush Road has now been completed with the final seal in place. Council thanks residents for their patience during the upgrade. There is still some landscaping work to be done in areas that were disturbed during construction but this should not cause any real disruption for residents.

August 2016

Due to unexpected delays with parts of this project, the expected finish date is now likely to be the end of September.  Council apologises to residents for the ongoing inconvenience.

Update June 2016

Wet weather and some issues with the concurrent installation of ultra fast broadband have caused delays on this project and a completion date of around the end of July now seems more likely. Thanks to residents for their continued patience and understanding.  

April 2016

Work on this footpath construction and roading upgrade will begin mid April and should be completed towards the end of June. The work will temporarily restrict property access to residents at times and traffic management will be in place with stop / go conditions throughout the duration of the project.


Todd Bush Road has been identified as a growing area and currently has a disjointed footpath network.  Due to the volume of pedestrians making the trip to and from State Highway 6, the need for a continuous path has been identified.  The project aims to provide a path from State Highway 6 bus stop area through to Tod Reserve park. Kerb and channel work and some road pavement repair will be done in conjunction with the footpath construction.
