Upgrade now finished for Monto Aerodrome
THE Monto Aerodrome has now been upgraded thanks to the Queensland Government’s funding.
North Burnett mayor Rachel Chambers said the successful finishing of the Monto Aerodrome upgrade finished the North Burnett Aerodrome Upgrade project, which had incorporated upgrades to Gayndah, Mundubbera and Monto aerodromes.
“The Monto Aerodrome project incorporated a complete reseal of the runway and taxiway pavement including an asphalt corrector on a section of the runway to aid drainage, and upgrade of the aeronautical ground lighting,” Cr Chambers said.
“The Gayndah, Monto and Mundubbera aerodromes are of key strategic significance to the region,” she said.
“Each of these aerodromes plays an important role in their local community, as access for business flights, local flights, and most importantly, providing for a level of emergency medical services access, including the Royal Flying Doctor Service, as an alternative to time consuming road travel access.”
