South Burnett roads are getting better, Roads Portfolio chairman Cr Gavin Jones told Wednesday’s South Burnett Regional Council meeting.
“Roads have improved out of sight since I’ve been a councillor,” Cr Jones said.
“And I’m not saying it because it’s in my area, I’m saying it because it’s true.”
Cr Jones said construction crews would be working on four projects during May and June while maintenance crews carried out grading and resheeting on a dozen others.
Construction crews would be working on:
Meehan’s and Cooleys roads at Memerambi, and Spencers Road at Corndale, will receive maintenance grades by the end of June, Cr Jones said.
And resheeting will be carried out on Glencoe, Coverty and TH Burns roads at Coverty; Childs Road at Corndale; Haydens Road at Booie; Broadman Road at Hodgleigh; Muller Street at Coolabunia; and Ridley Street, Nanango.
Work crews will do some shoulder resheeting on part of the Brooklands-Pimpimbudgee Road as well.
Council workers are also working on the $1.87 million Rogers Road roundabout in Kingaroy, which has been contracted to the Council by the State Government.
