RESIDENTS FEEL SAFER
RESIDENTS at Forest View have thanked the Bundaberg Regional Council and the work crew involved in the widening of Morgan St, Childers.
With the recent upgrades complete, residents are feeling confident and safe when crossing the busy road.
The upgrades were a temporary inconvenience for the residents of Forest View as the road works were in progress.
Forest View CEO Jenny Nixon said the residents were feeling safer and they now have a clear view to see oncoming traffic.
Many residents readily admit they are not as fast as they use to be and the old road made it difficult to navigate with a walker.
The residents gathered on the street for a morning photo shoot with Town and Country to personally thank everyone involved in the road upgrade.
Maurice Graf, a resident of Forest View, said the residents are very appreciative of the recent works completed
The street has been widened to ensure better visibility and also levelled. Many of the residents use mobility scooters and can now do this in safety.
“They have done an excellent job on the upgrade and we can now cross the road safely, thanks to the council,” Mr Graf said.
