A service road off Burke Street near Marist-Sion College in Warragul will be closed after a council vote last week.

The street is located between Cornish and McCulloch Streets and was to be used in a small commercial development, but that never reached the building phase.
Cr Gauci said the road was of no benefit to the community except for a small number of people who used it as a pick up and drop off zone for students.
“This service road… has been identified as a service road in Warragul really serving no benefit,” Cr Gauci said.
“The developers are now propo-sing to put units on the site and the roadway.
“We were sort of under the impression it was a heavily used road, but after investigation we found that it was only a limited number of people who actually used it as a pick up and drop off zone.
“I believe in this particular situ-ation I believe it’d be better if it was sold off to the developer and not be a burden on the council.”
