Work has begun on the refurbishment lower Scott Street in Wondai as part of the town’s CBD upgrade

March 14, 2024:

South Burnett Regional Council’s upgrade to the lower end of Scott Street in Wondai is now well under way … as motorists and pedestrians in the area would be well aware.

Work began on February 12 and Council hopes to have it finished by early May.

“The project will revitalise the Scott Street commercial precinct with new infrastructure that includes stormwater drains, kerb and channel, exposed aggregate concrete footpath areas, bike racks and pedestrian seating,” a Council spokesperson said on Thursday.

The initial works are focussing on the eastern side, between Edward and Haly streets.

They include the removal of kerbing and part of the existing footpath.

Once this is done, a builder will begin work on modifications to the shop awning posts, including the installation of new concrete footings.

Council staff are now in the process of identifying and locating services on the site and hope to have these works completed in the next few weeks.

This will include trenching, the installation of stormwater pipes and pouring slabs for the exposed aggregate footpath.

These activities will create machinery and equipment noise as well as some restrictions on parking and pedestrian access to ensure public safety.

“However, these impacts will be limited and allow for continual business access as construction progresses,” the spokesperson said.

Site works and construction activity will be performed Mondays to Fridays between 6:00am and 4:00pm, with occasional weekend work.

The project is being jointly funded by the State Government’s 2021-24 Works for Queensland Program and Council’s 2023-24 capital works program.
