Ca­nia road clo­sure ex­tended for works

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NORTH Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil has an­nounced the tem­po­rary clo­sure of Kari­boe Rd, Ca­nia, has been ex­tended to Fe­bru­ary.

In a state­ment, the coun­cil said this was due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances.

The up­graded road, part of North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil’s NDRRA pro­gram bet­ter­ment works, is ex­pected to re-open mid-Fe­bru­ary, weather per­mit­ting.

Kari­boe Rd is cur­rently closed to through traf­fic, with ac­cess pro­vided for lo­cal traf­fic only.

Road users are ad­vised that an al­ter­na­tive route is avail­able via Ca­nia Rd and the Bur­nett Hwy dur­ing this time.

The works will in­clude the re­align­ment and el­e­va­tion of road sec­tions.

The road clo­sure will fa­cil­i­tate a more cost-ef­fec­tive, quicker and safer project, and when com­plete the up­graded road will pro­vide greater flood re­silience.

Mo­torists are re­quested to travel with ex­treme care and re­spon­si­bil­ity, to drive to the pre­vail­ing road con­di­tions and to ad­here to sig­nage.

The coun­cil apol­o­gises for any in­con­ve­nience caused and thanks mo­torists for their pa­tience while this work is in progress.
