The Dunn Street and Hussey Road pedestrian refuge upgrade is now complete.

Throughout June Bundaberg Regional Council completed several upgrades and road projects in the region including at the Avoca/Duffy Street intersection and Dunn Street/Hussey Road pedestrian refuge.

Other projects including the Bundaberg South State School pedestrian refuge upgrade and Hummock Road upgrade are progressing with work expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Mayor Jack Dempsey said the ongoing work was part of Council’s commitment to improving connectivity and providing safer routes for residents and visitors.

“Council understands the importance of having a connected community and this is why we’ve committed $3 million to pathways investment in Council’s 2023-24 budget,” he said.

“We have a strong focus on improving road infrastructure around the Bundaberg Region.

“This financial year will see Council inject more than $33 million into road projects with plans to allocate close to $3.8 million to drainage projects in the same period.”

Mayor Dempsey said the significant investments in pathways, road development and drainage would improve the community's infrastructure and promote a safer and more sustainable living environment.
