A 2.75km section of Coonarr Beach Road will be sealed to a width of six metres to enhance community safety and provide all-weather reliability.
Bundaberg Regional Council's roads and drainage portfolio spokesman Cr Bill Trevor said the upgrade will address the problem identified by residents of salt water crossing the road at a culvert during king tides.
“Coonarr Beach Road is a section of unsealed road connecting Coonarr Road with the Esplanade,” he said.
“This project, valued at $640,000, will provide a safer travel route for residents of Coonarr Beach Esplanade as well as benefiting the increasing numbers of visitors to the seaside location.”
Cr Trevor said Coonarr Beach was growing in popularity.
“The upgrade, which is expected to commence soon, will address the concerns of local residents and provide a safer driving environment for all road users as it links the Coonarr Beach area with Goodwood Road and its major regional centres,” he said.
“Traffic management will be in place and the site supervisor will liaise with local residents who may be affected by the work.”
