306 road re­pair projects done

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

FUL­TON Ho­gan work­ers have downed their tools to cel­e­brate the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of their $30 mil­lion con­tract in the North Bur­nett.

Se­nior project en­gi­neer Peter Kelly de­scribed their con­tract to fix 306 roads as “a big­ger chal­lenge than orig­i­nally thought”.

Mr Kelly said the project was the “re­con­struc­tion of sealed and unsealed roads, fix­ing drains, and com­ple­tion of flood restora­tion works all over the shire – Gayn­dah, Mun­dub­bera, Eidsvold and Biggen­den”.

“You look at it on a map and it looks so straight­for­ward,” he said.

“It was a big chal­lenge for us to man­age, to do that suc­cess­fully.”

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil CEO Mark Pitt said flood restora­tion works, with CMC Group and Ful­ton Ho­gan as the ma­jor con­trac­tors, were 80% com­plete.

The Gayn­dah Mun­dub­bera Rd and Gayn­dah raw wa­ter in­take project were due to be fin­ished in com­ing weeks, Mr Pitt said. The coun­cil is also sched­uled to com­plete works on 11 roads, in­clud­ing Blue Shirt Rd, Airstrip Rd and Coominglah Rd, be­fore Christ­mas.
