New fences near the historic Koroit Railway Station have been given the tick of approval by the group tending to the area.
Port Fairy to Warrnambool Rail Trail Committee of Management secretary Ian Bodycoat said the new post and rail fence installed along Bourke Avenue, east of the station, was a good match.
"The new fence is certainly sympathetic to the history of the railway station precinct," Mr Bodycoat said.
"It looks really good and fits in well with the older section of post and rail fence that is still intact closest to the station."
Mr Bodycoat's only concern with the fence was the impact it may have on parking.
"It does limit parking near the skate park and the station," he said.
"But a parking area for the skate park is in Moyne Shire Council's master plan so that problem will eventually be addressed."
As well as the new post and rail fencing, which is on both sides of the Bourke Avenue road, council has also removed a number of London Plane Trees.
A council spokesperson said these trees were found to be hollow, rotten and a safety risk.
They have been replaced by mature trees of the same species.
The spokesperson said the works were aimed at improving safety.
"This (the fence) is to prevent informal car parking, which is presenting a risk to pedestrians, particularly children, who are crossing Bourke Avenue," the spokesperson said.
"This fence will also protect the plane trees and define a slow zone for passing traffic. This will ensure safe linkage for users of the youth space and rail trail and connection to the station toilets for people of all abilities."
The Port Fairy end of the rail trail has also had some additions.
The committee of management has constructed a shelter and old railway signals near the Sun Pharmaceutical factory.
The shelter was an idea from resident Sonia Sandars, who travels on the trail on her mobility scooter daily.
"I have been using the rail trail since it was built and sometimes I can get stuck in wet and windy weather," Ms Sandars said.
"The shelter will be great to get out of the weather. There are a lot of people with prams who will get great use out of it as well."
