THE Roma Sa­le­yards Im­prove­ment Plan Stage 1 is pro­gress­ing with the sell­ing pen yard frames now com­plete and weld­ing of the fence rails now in full swing.

The new sell­ing pens and drafts are be­ing built on the east­ern side of the yards and will make way for ad­di­tional re­ceival/de­liv­ery yards on the western side.

Stage 1 of the Im­prove­ment Plan is set to be com­pleted in April 2019 (weather per­mit­ting).

Coun­cil­lor Peter Flynn, Port­fo­lio Chair for the Roma Sa­le­yards said it was fan­tas­tic to see the con­struc­tion of the new sell­ing yards de­vel­op­ing and to see how much more room it would make for ad­di­tional re­ceiv­able/de­liv­ery yards once com­pleted.

“See­ing strong progress on the Sa­le­yards Im­prove­ment Plan is a great achieve­ment for Mara­noa Re­gional Coun­cil and we look for­ward to the con­tin­ual de­vel­op­ment in the com­ing months,” Cr Flynn said.

The to­tal cost of the Roma Sa­le­yards Im­prove­ment Plan – Stage 1 project is about $2.173 mil­lion.

The Roma Sa­le­yards Im­prove­ment Plan, Stage 1 is a joint ini­tia­tive of Mara­noa Re­gional Coun­cil and the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment.
