Trucks and industrial traffic are set to benefit from road upgrades at Sheridan St once construction is complete in July.

Bundaberg Regional Council's roads and drainage portfolio spokesman Cr Bill Trevor said repair work to the Bundaberg East area was required due to its deterioration from heavy vehicle use.

“The project was funded as pavement conditions were weakening, mostly due to truck traffic,” Cr Trevor said.

“Council crews have been installing kerb and channel with subsoil drains, new pavement with tensar geogrid with 50 mm asphalt surfacing.”

Divisional representative Cr May Mitchell said the work would significantly improve the Bundaberg East street to benefit the heavy vehicles utilising the area each day.

“The primary benefit will be extended service life and wider roadway for turning trucks,” she said.

“It will also improve safety, improve road surface to meet increased heavy vehicle demands and reduce ongoing road maintenance which is a real win for the trucking community.”

Cr Mitchell said Sheridan St upgrade begab mid-May and was likely to be complete by mid-July.

During construction, Sheridan St will be subject to traffic management measures and will have the appropriate signage to guide motorists through or around the site.
