WORKS to improve Mitchell Street will begin Sunday.
Preliminary site works will be undertaken to start the $3.8 million redevelopment.
City of Greater Bendigo presentation and assets director Darren Fuzzard said the council would work to minimise disruptions during the development.
“Traders have been consulted and will be kept fully informed on how works are progressing and the types of impacts they can expect week-to-week,” he said.
“A site office has also been set up at 34 Mitchell Street and traders are encouraged to visit there if they have any concerns.
“The streetscape works have been divided into three sections to limit the extent of shops directly impacted at any one time.”
Works will include the removal of the median island between Pall Mall and Hargreaves Street and the replacement of Mitchell Street footpaths.
