The Shire of Campaspe will seek compensation from VicRoads to fund work outlined on in the master plan for Echuca’s Victoria Park.
VicRoad’s proposed route for a second Echuca Moam bridge will run through the park and as a result council has had to amend its master plan for the area.
Mayor Peter Williams says if the bridge goes ahead it will directly impact on the lawn tennis clubs and access to the park.
“Given that the second bridge is going to cut right around the end of Victoria Park, there is clearly going to be an impact on that park,” he said.
“We are hopeful that as a part of that process [VicRoads] may well in fact contribute some of the funds towards making this plan happen.”
