Road works planned for CBD intersection

Motorists are being warned of minor delays from Monday as five weeks of road works begins in central Bendigo.

Safety upgrades will be carried out at the High and Short streets intersection and will be completed mostly between 7am and 5pm.

The intersection is being widened to allow designated turning lanes from Short Street, as well as traffic signal upgrades, road resurfacing and new line marking.

The $504,000 VicRoads upgrade is aiming to relieve congestion and improve traffic flow at the busy intersection.

Works are expected to take five weeks, weather permitting, and some night works will occur.
