Capel Entry Statement & Roundabout Works

The Shire of Capel advises that the construction of Capel Entry Statement Project will commence on 25 April 2017 with completion expected by 25 May 2017.

The signage and artwork has been designed by Erin Rafferty. As a graphic artist, Erin Rafferty has spent numerous hours to finalise the design and the Council endorsed her design for implementation.

The work includes:

  • Replacement of the two existing entry signs at the Northern and Southern ends of Capel Drive
  • Installation of a new sign on Goodwood Road and
  • Install artwork tube at the Northern Roundabout at Capel Drive.

The work will take up to four weeks to complete. At various times during the installation, (such as when the crane will be required to lift the artworks into place), traffic management will be in place near the Roundabout at Capel Drive, Wideson Road and Gavins Road.

Road users are urged to slow down when approaching the area, obey all signs and show courtesy to other road users.

Smoke Alarms – Winter Approaches!

As winter approached we will start to think of ways of warming our homes.

With that of course come the potential for an increase in the possibility of fires occurring as we have heating sources close to flammable fuels.

One of the steps we can take in our households to warn us of fires is to have smoke alarms fitted in appropriate locations. They also need to be checked regularly to ensure that they work.

Please take a moment to read the following two Fact Sheets from the Department of Fire and Emergency Services regarding the installation and maintenance of smoke alarms.
