Roads improving through Black Spot Program

roads May Bundaberg
Work is continuing for two more Black Spot Programs with the Commercial/Production Street project now at 75% complete and Targo/Burnett Street Black Spot Program progressing with 15% completed in May.

Footpath upgrades and Black Spot Program improvements were just a few of the essential roads and drainage works to happen in May across the Bundaberg Region.

The Black Spot Program is an Australian Government funded initiative that provides funding for low-cost, high-benefit improvements on the road network to address actual or potential crashes that lead to high severity outcomes (fatalities and hospitalisations).

Bundaberg Regional Council nominated four intersections, based on crash data for the most recent five-year period, for inclusion in the 2023/2024 Black Spot Program.

In the Bundaberg area Johanna Blvd/Commercial Street works were completed in May while the Birthamba Road Black Spot curve improvement project continued.

Work was underway for two other Black Spot Programs, including Commercial/Production Street and the Burnett/Targo Street Black Spot Program progressing with 15% completed in May.

Other roads and drainage work

In the Childers area the rehabilitation and widening of Foleys Road at North Gregory continued, while drainage and earthwork started in the Childers SES carpark project.

A floodway renewal began at Diamond Hill Road in the Gin Gin area, and the culvert renewal at Winfield Road was completed.

  1. even after another incident at the Highway / Buxton Road intersection just recently, we have silence again.

  2. And nothing for Alamein Street, Svensson Heights. There is so much traffic coming up and down the first block of the street. Large trucks, servicing the little corner shop on Branyan, empty buses coming from God knows where, speeding motor cycles roaring through the first block. Speed limit certainly not doing what they should be.
