Churchill St up­grade

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE fi­nal stage – Stage 6 of the Childers Streetscape is rapidly near­ing com­ple­tion six months af­ter the main street up­grade com­menced.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil’s Roads and Drainage port­fo­lio spokesman Cr Tony Ric­cia­rdi said around $1.2 mil­lion had been in­vested in the project which saw the foot­paths and ser­vice lanes up­graded on both sides of the high­way be­tween McIlwraith and Broad­hurst Sts.

“The project has suc­ceeded in con­nect­ing the ar­eas of the CBD that were com­pleted in the orig­i­nal Streetscape de­sign roll­out and this area at the north­ern end of town.

“The lo­cal Cham­ber and traders in this area have long pe­ti­tioned to have the area up­graded both from a beau­ti­fi­ca­tion and a safety per­spec­tive. All the feed­back I am re­ceiv­ing is that ev­ery­one is de­lighted with the re­sult.”

Cr Ric­cia­rdi said the fi­nal as­phalt seal was ex­pected to be laid on Novem­ber 1.

“That seal will take around a week to cure prior to line mark­ing park­ing bays the fol­low­ing week,” he said.

“Some gar­dens and street fur­ni­ture will also be in­stalled.”
