Opposition Leader and Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington has again urged the State Government to do urgent upgrades to the Maidenwell-Bunya Mountains Road, saying the current works are “nowhere near enough” to make the road safe.
“There are many State Government managed roads around the South Burnett which need urgent upgrades,” Mrs Frecklington said.
“I know that many local residents would agree with me that one of the most desperate is the Maidenwell-Bunya Mountains Road.
“(It) is the main connector to the popular Bunya Mountains, yet it remains a dangerous road.
“I have been fighting to have this road fixed for many years and we are finally seeing a small amount of funding assigned to clearing the sides of the roads and the installation of some signage.
“These works are scheduled to start soon.
“But this is nowhere near enough to make this road safe.
“There is a lengthy unsealed section, dangerous corners and near misses on this road each and every day.
“I understand the importance of roads like the Maidenwell-Bunya Mountains Road, but this city-centric Palaszczuk Labor Government wouldn’t even know it exists.”
