CROSS­ING UP­DATE

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

Work has started on the Bol­warra Road Tate River Cross­ing re­newal and up­grade 50km south-west of Chilla­goe. The cause­way is too low and is reg­u­larly cov­ered by flood wa­ters, which cre­ates a se­vere safety haz­ard for mo­torists. Works will im­prove the cause­way’s flood im­mu­nity. Works will in­clude rais­ing the height of the Tate cause­way, straight­en­ing and widen­ing to 4.5m. The project is funded through the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Roads to Re­cov­ery Pro­gram, the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment’s Build­ing Our Re­gions Pro­gram and the Com­mu­nity Re­silience Fund. Works are sched­uled to be com­plete by the start of the wet sea­son.
