Trou­ble springs up

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

COUN­CIL road crews were yes­ter­day work­ing to re­pair a sec­tion of road in An­gus Smith Drive where re­peated patch­ing is be­ing un­der­mined by an un­der­ground spring.

A 25-me­tre sec­tion of road is un­der traf­fic con­trol be­cause of dam­age caused by wa­ter bub­bling up through the road.

Con­struc­tion and Main­te­nance Divi­sion ex­ec­u­tive man­ager Bren­den Quabba said the coun­cil would use a com­bi­na­tion of geo-fab­ric, rock and ce­ment-treated gravel on a tem­po­rary fix un­til con­di­tions were dry enough for per­ma­nent re­con­struc­tion work.
