Road­works soon to be com­pleted

Gatton Star - - Life -

SOM­ER­SET Re­gional Coun­cil has com­pleted bi­tu­men seal­ing works on Mil­lar Road and Theuerkauf­s Road, Fair­ney View.

Som­er­set Mayor Graeme Lehmann has wel­comed Coun­cil's up­grade of roads south of Fern­vale.

"I thank res­i­dents and other users of Mil­lar Road and Theuerkauf­s Road for their pa­tience over re­cent weeks," Cr Lehmann said.

"Th­ese have been jobs worth wait­ing for and give peo­ple im­proved op­tions to link up to strate­gic roads like Fern­vale Road and Claus Road.”

Each day, about 5000 ve­hi­cles travel along the Bris­bane Val­ley High­way from Fern­vale and Lowood.

“We need to keep press­ing for im­prove­ments to Bris­bane Val­ley High­way and I thank the State Gov­ern­ment and our lo­cal mem­ber Jim Mad­den for re­cent works on the high­way,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Ul­ti­mately, the Bris­bane Val­ley High­way will re­quire fur­ther im­prove­ments to re­flect the rapid growth of Som­er­set and the value of goods pro­duced here.

“In the mean­time, there is a lot that we as Coun­cil can do to pro­vide al­ter­na­tives to the Bris­bane Val­ley High­way.

“I en­cour­age res­i­dents and busi­nesses to ex­plore their op­tions for get­ting to theWar­rego High­way for when there are prob­lems on the Bris­bane Val­ley High­way.

“I think that Claus Road is a great al­ter­na­tive for res­i­dents trav­el­ling south.”

Cr Lehmann said the lat­est road up­grades south of Fern­vale will help con­nect peo­ple bet­ter and he thanked ev­ery­one in­volved in the project.
