South Burnett Mayor Brett Otto has welcomed a statement by local member and Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington that an LNP State Government would support key roads projects across the South Burnett.
In a media release on October 19, Mrs Frecklington said:
“I have been fighting for the final section of Maidenwell-Bunya Mountains Rd to be sealed, to improve the main connector to the popular Bunya Mountains.”
“I’ll also want to see funding for the Mundubbera-Durong Rd to widen an 11km single-lane section which is critical for the economic prosperity of our region, in particular for primary producers and transport companies.”
Mayor Otto said Council had highlighted the importance of the Mundubbera-Durong Road and the Maidenwell-Bunya Mountains Road in its pre-election advocacy document presented to candidates over recent weeks.
He said he had been “actively engaging” with both of the major political parties over these key roads.
“Roads are critical infrastructure underpinning our region’s economic development and I’m pleased to see the Opposition Leader’s commitment to these vital assets within the South Burnett,” Mayor Otto said.
