Redevelopment transforms town
BURNETT Heads now boasts a “smarter” and more beautiful town centre thanks to a multimillion dollar streetscape redevelopment.
Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said the redevelopment had transformed the town centre and unlocked significant development potential in the growing Bundaberg region.
The redevelopment was officially opened yesterday with a community street party planned for today.
“This project will stimulate economic and population growth, meaning more opportunities for the town’s businesses,” Mr Pitt said.
“The redevelopment includes wider footpaths, landscaping, on-street car parking, public art, disabled parking spaces, smart technology and sewerage infrastructure for Zunker Street.
“The Burnett construction works will be a game changer for the town making it better for business, better for pedestrians and better for visitors.”
Queensland Minister for State Development Cameron Dick said the redevelopment will benefit both the commercial area of Burnett Heads and its immediate surrounds.
