Broad­hurst St gets an up­grade

Isis Town and Country - - News -

MA­JOR re­seal prepa­ra­tion works will start on Broad­hurst St, be­tween the Bruce Hwy and De­lany Crt, in Childers later this month.

Main Roads Wide Bay/Bur­nett dis­trict di­rec­tor Scott Whi­taker said works in­volved re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing the ex­ist­ing road and plac­ing a new bi­tu­men spray seal.

“Works will pro­vide a smoother road sur­face and re­duce the need for on­go­ing main­te­nance,” he said.

Lo­cals can ex­pect as­so­ci­ated dis­rup­tions at this lo­ca­tion and prepa­ra­tion works are set to oc­cur from Tues­day, Septem­ber 15 to Thurs­day, Septem­ber 17, be­tween 6am and 5pm, weather per­mit­ting.

The pro­ject team will re­turn to the site to­wards the end of the year to place the fi­nal seal, which will wa­ter­proof the pave­ment and en­sure dura­bil­ity.

Mr Whi­taker said traf­fic con­trols, in­clud­ing re­duced speed lim­its, tem­po­rary in­ter­sec­tion clo­sures, de­tours and traf­fic con­trollers, would be in place for the safety of mo­torists and road work­ers.

“Road users should ex­pect de­lays, are en­cour­aged to drive to changed con­di­tions and obey all sig­nage and traf­fic con­trollers’ di­rec­tions,” he said.

Nearby res­i­dents and busi­nesses have been no­ti­fied of ex­pected im­pacts, in­clud­ing some ac­cess dis­rup­tions, noise and dust while works are un­der way.

“We will work closely with the con­trac­tor to mit­i­gate these im­pacts as much as pos­si­ble. We thank the com­mu­nity in ad­vance for its pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing,” he said.
