Drainage work has commence in Laby Street, Ararat, to provide improvements to the area.
The project includes replacing old 300mm pipes with 600mm pipes to compensate the amount of stormwater coming through and the removal of some trees.
The trees would be replaced with a new species, suited to the urban environment.
Work is anticipated to be completed by the end of September. Ararat Rural City advised there would be some minor noise disruptions, and a temporary street detour.
Ararat Rural City Council CEO Tim Harrison said the project would provide a much-needed improvement in the area.
"Residents and the wider community can be assured that the staff are working hard to ensure that there are minimal disruptions while the works are underway," he said.
"People will be well informed of any disruptions, and given plenty of time to plan"
The $60,000 upgrades were approved as part of the new council budget.
