Work is now underway to revitalise a stretch of footpath along Goodwood Road, Thabeban, to improve accessibility in the area.
Bundaberg Regional Council's Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Bill Trevor said the work consists of replacing an old, existing footpath with 320 metres of new, two-metre-wide concrete pathway.
“This project will bring the existing pathway up to the current standards,” he said .
“The pathway has been identified as a Principal Pathway as part of Council Active Transport Strategy.
“The construction of these pathways service the community by improving accessibility and mobility of residents.
“Pathways encourage participation in physical activity and provide connectivity to facilities which allows people to engage with the space around them.”
Work is being undertaken weekdays, during the hours of 6 am and 5 pm.
Weather permitting, the Goodwood Road footpath project will be completed within four weeks.
During construction, sections of the roads will be subject to traffic management measures and will have the appropriate signage to guide motorists.
Bundaberg Regional Council is aware of the inconvenience construction causes and thanks residents and road users in advance for their patience and co-operation.
