Street work nears half­way

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WORK cur­rently un­der­way on the fi­nal stage of the Childers Streetscape lo­cated be­tween the Grand Ho­tel and McDon­alds Res­tau­rant is sched­uled to be com­pleted by Au­gust 21.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil roads and drainage spokesman Tony Ric­cia­rdi said the work was pro­ceed­ing to sched­ule and to bud­get.

“We have had a pretty good run with the weather and if it con­tin­ues we will fin­ish this first side of the pro­ject on time, with the op­po­site side of the high­way ex­pected to be fi­nalised by Oc­to­ber,” he said.

Cr Ric­cia­rdi said it was good that the works cre­ated min­i­mal in­con­ve­nience at the Childers Fes­ti­val.

“I un­der­stand that all that re­mains to be done in this first stage is for the as­phalt layer to be ap­plied to the ser­vice lane, the con­crete pol­ished, street fur­ni­ture in­stalled and land­scap­ing fi­nalised,” Cr Ric­cia­rdi said.

“Once this side is com­pleted, the con­struc­tion em­pha­sis will switch to the op­po­site side of the street be­tween the Fed­eral Ho­tel and Mam­mino’s.
