Work to a number of roads throughout the region is underway, with 30 sites the focus of Bundaberg Regional Council’s road reconstruction and rehabilitation program.
Council has appointed Berajondo Earthmoving and Haulage as principal contractor to undertake the works, which are expected to be complete in November, weather permitting.
Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Bill Trevor said areas in Kensington, Kalkie, Woongarra, Gooburrum, Fairymead and Oakwood would be the focus throughout September.
“These works involve cement stabilisation and bitumen resurfacing of 30 sites all around the Bundaberg Regional Council area,” Cr Trevor said.
“The works will rehabilitate nearly 170,000sq m of road pavement at the identified sites.
“The sites have been identified through ongoing Council inspection programs, consultation with each area’s relevant supervisor as well as historical data.”
