Sections of bitumen roads in the Cooyar and Yarraman areas will be resealed as part of Toowoomba Regional Council’s $8 million annual regional road reseal program.
Deputy Mayor Carol Taylor said the program would restore and improve road surfaces on more than 200km of bitumen seals across the TRC’s road network.
“Resealing is a very economical way to help preserve our road network, which is one of our greatest assets. The work involves spraying bitumen and rolling in a layer of uniformly sized stones to create a new surface,” she said.
“The reseal is primarily about waterproofing the surface to protect the pavement and extend its life, as well as improve surface texture issues.”
Other areas covered by the program include Acland, Boodua, Bowenville, Brymaroo, Clifton, Crows Nest, Djuan, Glencoe, Goombungee, Gowrie Junction, Greenmount, Hampton, Highfields, Kleinton, Meringandan, Millmerran, Oakey, Pittsworth and Ravensbourne.
Access to properties will be maintained during the work and traffic controls will be in place to assist motorists.
