Mun­dub­bera gets its air­port

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - Noel Thomp­son noel.thomp­son@cnbtimes.com.au

MUN­DUB­BERA will be the first town in the North Bur­nett to have their airstrip up­graded to an air­port.

A mas­sive 1200m long and 20m wide with an over­all clear­ance of 80m

This new up­grade will be wel­comed by air traf­fic from the pri­vate sec­tor, the com­mer­cial sec­tor and the heath sec­tor.

The same up­grades are set to be rolled out to Monto and Gayn­dah, bring­ing three of our largest town’s air­ports up to a CASA stan­dard.

The North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil needs to be con­grat­u­lated for see­ing this ini­tia­tive through and mak­ing it hap­pen.

The works are be­ing done by coun­cil staff and lo­cal con­trac­tors.

The ex­pe­ri­ence that our lo­cals are gain­ing by be­ing en­gaged in th­ese projects is priceless and there is noth­ing but good com­ing from th­ese ad­vance­ments.

The young en­gi­neer­ing team work­ing on the new air­ports are ca­pa­ble and en­thu­si­as­tic and the team will de­liver the projects on time and on bud­get.

If our work­force can achieve the re­sults that I know they will, they are go­ing to gain the con­fi­dence needed to de­velop new in­fra­struc­ture for the ben­e­fit of the whole North Bur­nett.

I be­lieve that this in­fra­struc­ture is the sort of thing we need to kick start our econ­omy.
