Work will start on Wednesday to upgrade North Isis Road at Childers, resulting in the closure of a section of the road for up to five weeks.
Bundaberg Regional Council will widen the road between McDonalds and Framptons Road, a distance of about 2km.
In recent weeks the verges of the identified section of road have been cleared in preparation for the work which will involve a stormwater drainage upgrade and bitumen seal road widening.
Divisional representative Cr Bill Trevor said North Isis Road was widely used to access farms in the North Isis area as well as being a popular connector road from Childers to the Isis Highway.
“This upgrade being undertaken by Council will deliver a higher standard and much safer road for users and better cater to the increased traffic flow,” he said.
“Council staff will liaise closely with residents affected by the work advising on the placement of wheelie bins on collection days and having traffic control measures in place to facilitate property access during construction.”
Cr Trevor said the work, which is scheduled to be conducted between 6.30am and 5pm, was expected to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting.
“Council appreciates that work of this nature can impact residents and cause inconvenience to property owners and the travelling public,” he said.
“We do apologise for any impediment caused while this important work is being undertaken.”
