Re­gion’s roads get re­sealed

Isis Town and Country - - News -

COUN­CIL will in­vest one mil­lion dol­lars on re-sheet­ing of gravel roads across the re­gion as part of a $5 mil­lion com­mit­ment to its roads resur­fac­ing pro­gram this fi­nan­cial year.

Roads and Drainage port­fo­lio spokesman Cr Wayne Honor said sec­tions of roads right across the re­gion were in­cluded in the sched­uled re-grav­el­ling work.

“It is pro­posed that Won­bah Rd in­clud­ing the Ave, Chavasse Dr, Duck­pond and Mool­boola­man Rds will be resur­faced by the crew from Gin Gin, while in the Childers area Hei­d­kes, Set­tle­ment, Knud­sens, Creeveys, Abing­ton, Plan­ta­tion and La Roc­cas Rds have sec­tions in­cluded in the pro­gram.

“Other roads to also re­ceive at­ten­tion in­clude Gil­lens Creek, Phillips, Jones, Adies and Mon­duran Rds.”

Cr Honor said it was also pleas­ing to see that lo­cal pit op­er­a­tors across the re­gion would have an op­por­tu­nity to ben­e­fit through sup­ply­ing some of the ma­te­rial for this pro­gram.

The re­main­der of the bud­get al­lo­ca­tion would be spent on bi­tu­men re­seals, as­phalt over­lays, as­phalt re­ju­ve­na­tion and mi­cro resur­fac­ing.
