THE bitumen works on Echuca’s Latham Rd are officially finished.
The council signed off on the project in 2015 for the construction of Latham Rd, from Braund Rd to a point 2.08km east including pavement, sealing and associated drainage works.
And the total cost came in under budget — at a total of $737,832.50 the project is 1.63 per cent less than the estimate. The project was declared to be paid by both the council (20 per cent) and land owners (80 per cent).
Councillor Leigh Wilson said it was exciting to see this project reach this stage.
‘‘It is now able to be used by the public and it is great to see this special charge finalised and improvement along Latham Rd,’’ he said.
