Flood repairs tipped to be finished this yearMonday April 8, 2013 - 11:39 EST
The Northern Grampians Shire expects repair works caused by flooding three years ago will be finished by the end of the year.
It is estimated recovery works to repair flood damage in the Northern Grampians will cost a total of $30 million.
The shire says 1,500 properties were flooded between September 2010 and December 2011.
In a report to tonight's council meeting, the shire forecasts 90 per cent of the region's bridge, road and drainage infrastructure works will be finished by June.
This includes upgrades to the Halls Gap pedestrian bridge and a new asphalt surface to be laid at Stawell's North Park this winter.
The report also states the auditor-general's office visited Stawell last month to conduct a review of the region's flood recovery and relief efforts, to be tabled in the Victorian Parliament in June.
