    The Kingaroy/Barkers Creek Rd stretch just past the Booie Dump to the sweeping bend has 4 to 6 inch drop on the shoulders, very dangerous.

    Also Glenmore Road is in bad need of repair. The far end of the road has gutters 2ft deep where the water has been running down each side of the one-vehicle wide track.

    There doesn’t seem to be any listing for repairs or maintenance to these two roads.

    The Kingaroy/ Barkers Creek Rd has a lot of traffic using it, and getting off the single lane bitumen stretch to pass an oncoming vehicle is very dangerous.

    Whilst the Council can be commended for roadworks to Reeve Road and Nanango Road, the facts are Reeve Road has two homes and the road was in good condition with maybe half a dozen cars per day.

    Neumgna-Nanango Road can be divided into two sections. Firstly the southern section resurfaced under roadworks has about six car movements per day and services one house. The northern section that has not been touched is a reasonable gravel surface corrugated with some potholes. This section has not been touched despite servicing some 30 homes and a minimum of 50 cars per day. Also McGillivray Road has an access to this road, is narrow and corrugated with some 20 car movements not touched.

    Quite unbelievable how our rates are spent.

    Kingaroy Barkers Creek Road needs to be 2 lanes ASAP or the speed limit dropped. Someone is going to be killed or seriously injured.

    I had a cattle truck fly past and sprayed me with rocks as it is not wide enough. Now I have more stone chips in my windscreen to add to the others on the same stretch of road, when people do not slow down.

    While you’re doing the bridge up, might as well do the whole road up right into Kingaroy.
