THREE vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tres in Som­er­set have again com­mit­ted to the Driver Re­viver cam­paign.

The cam­paign is a na­tional, vol­un­teer-based ini­tia­tive that aims to ad­dress driver fa­tigue.

The cen­tres at Fern­vale, Too­goolawah and Kilcoy are of­fer­ing free tea, cof­fee and snacks for trav­ellers and are open now, un­til Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 7.

“Driv­ers are en­cour­aged to take a break ev­ery two hours, and Som­er­set is the per­fect place to re­lax and stretch your legs,” Som­er­set Mayor Graeme Lehmann said when the pro­gram be­gan in Au­gust.

“Som­er­set Re­gional Coun­cil has four ac­cred­ited vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tres of­fer­ing book­lets, brochures, maps and more on the area’s at­trac­tions.

“The cen­tres are open seven days a week, staffed by knowl­edge­able vol­un­teers and coun­cil em­ploy­ees.”

The Driver Re­viver sta­tions are in­side the in­for­ma­tion cen­tres at 1483 Bris­bane Val­ley High­way, Fern­vale; 29 Fac­tory Rd, Too­goolawah; and 41 Hope St, Kilcoy.
