NEW gates which will see the laneway connecting Smith Street to Club Lane in Warragul closed at night have been installed.

First published in the 10 April 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.


The gates were installed on Wednesday, but will not come into action for some time.

A spokesperson for the Baw Baw Shire Council told the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen both the council and surrounding shop owners will have control of the gates.

“The laneway closure will be implemented every day between 19:00 and 07:00,” the spokesperson said.

“Council officers will open and close the gates at these times.


“The gates are not in action yet as they still require the locks to be created and installed.

“This will occur in due course.

“All surrounding shop owners and tenants will also have a key to the gates.”

Baw Baw councillors resolved to introduce the gates at a meeting last year.

The closure plan was introduced in response to misuse of the lane late at night.
