Bass Coast Local News:
Pioneer Bay Readies for Road Upgrade

Road and drainage upgrade set for Pioneer Bay Estate road.

By Portal Admin - 5th May 2019 - Back to News

Bass Coast Shire Council is proceeding with the Pioneer Bay Estate road and drainage upgrade.

The upgrade was approved by Council in February, 2018 however it was delayed after being referred to the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for review.

Council was recently informed by VCAT that the review of the decision to declare a special charge scheme had been withdrawn. Through the process to review the decision, Council’s processes and procedures were rigorously tested and were seen to be fair and in line with legislation.

The upgrades will include construction and full upgrade of roads and drainage including pavement and sealing works, underground storm water drainage, kerb and channel, nature strip works, speed humps and pedestrian pathways on selected streets.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, said when the project was approved, Pioneer Bay was rated as the highest priority estate for a road and drainage upgrade.

"This was confirmed through community engagement sessions which began in 2015," Cr Tessari said.

Over the following months Council officers will continue to gather the necessary information to finalise construction drawings, prepare tenders and appoint a contractor.

Location and depth proving works at designated areas along the road reserves within Pioneer Bay were undertaken in March.

These works will form part of the detailed design phase of the road and drainage upgrade project for the Estate and will help determine when construction can start.

For more information on this project visit or contact Council’s Infrastructure Asset Team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
