Coun­cil looks into round­about op­tions

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil was pro­duc­tive last week re­paint­ing stop sign lines for Mun­dub­bera driv­ers af­ter it was re­ported they were be­ing ig­nored.

As re­ported in last week’s Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times, res­i­dents raised the pos­si­bil­ity of re­plac­ing stop signs on Le­ich­hardt and Bou­verie streets in Mun­dub­bera with a round­about, to in­crease driver safety.

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil Deputy Mayor Faye Whe­lan, said it was the first time the is­sue was brought up with her and that the coun­cil would look at in­ves­ti­gat­ing vi­able op­tions.

“I think it could be in­ves­ti­gated see­ing as it was con­sid­ered by a com­mu­nity mem­ber,” Cr Whe­lan said.

“I’m not too sure how much room you would need.

“Dis­tance could be a prob­lem as that’s the route of the trucks go­ing out to the or­chards and a lot of peo­ple go that way to the high­way.”

“Our coun­cil is al­ways look­ing for ways to bet­ter the re­gion so this one will be some­thing we’ll look at more closely.”
