Caution: Resurfacing Works Commence on Burnett Road

bunya

Resurfacing works will be undertaken this month in Bunya, between Avoca and Haly Street, and Kumbia township as part of the multimillion-dollar Burnett Road work project.

The works will involve removing and resurfacing the road pavement to waterproof the layers beneath and provide smoother travelling conditions.  

As per South Burnett Regional Council, works in Kingaroy township will be completed at night when traffic volumes are lower and will generally be between 7:00 pm and 5:00 am and other sites will be completed during daylight hours, generally between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm.

Road users are encouraged to plan their journeys in advance because this will involve the closure of some lanes and reduced speed limits. Motorists are also urged to follow traffic controller directions

Assistant Minister for Regional Roads Bruce Saunders believes these types of projects play an important part in supporting our industries right across the region, in particular, those industries that rely on our regional roads to transport goods

Mr Saunders added that the works will give new opportunities for road workers as we continue to recover from COVID-19 and spark more jobs in industries like construction, traffic management and engineering.

Depending on weather conditions, the resurfacing works are expected to be completed by the end of March.
