Beau­ti­ful boost for Monto

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of Monto has re­ceived a boost.

Thanks to a Queens­land Gas Cor­po­ra­tion grant, a tim­ber fence will be built along the rail­way line on the Bur­nett Hwy.

Eidsvold-based build­ing con­trac­tor Grant Na­gle said his team would work through to the end of next week to get the job done.

“We are build­ing a her­itage fence,” he said.

“There is no wire. It is all tim­ber.”

Mr Na­gle said he had sourced the tim­ber from nar­row leaf iron­bark trees on a pri­vate prop­erty near Monto.

North Bur­nett Coun­cil­lor Paul Lobegeier said fence-build­ing was a lost art.

“This fence will build pride in the town for lo­cals and make the town more pleas­ing to vis­i­tors,” Cr Lobegeier said.

The project is a con­tin­u­a­tion of a QGC grant to beau­tify the town.
