Upgrades to North Isis Road have been completed with the road opened to general traffic today.
Council began the upgrade in late April and undertook work which involved widening the road, improving drainage and upgrading culverts.
North Isis Road residents John and Peggy Huntley said the increased traffic flows on the road had necessitated the widening.
“It’s great to see the improved drainage and we are very happy with the new crossing that has been installed to provide access to our driveway.”
Divisional representative Cr Bill Trevor said the work had been funded through a Works for Queensland grant utilising a budget of around $500,000.
“North Isis Road is a major connector road linking Childers and the Logging Creek turnoff on to the Isis Highway. It also services a huge area of farmland and connects with roads exiting to Goodwood Road and also the Cordalba area.”
“The availability of Works for Queensland grants had enabled major projects like North Isis Road, as well as a multitude of smaller neighbourhood projects, to be identified and completed,” he said.
Cr Trevor said line marking on the road would be finalised next week.
