Reconstructive road works have begun on flood-damaged sections of the Tin Can Bay Road, Federal Member for Wide Bay and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, Warren Truss, said today.
“Last week, work began on road pavement, road surface and drainage upgrades on two sections of Tin Can Bay Road, between Goomboorian and Tin Can Bay, to repair damage sustained during 2013 floods,” Mr Truss said.
“The final road sealing and linemarking works should be completed by the middle of November, weather permitting.
To ensure the safety of motorists and road workers, traffic signals, traffic controllers, single lane closures and speed restrictions will be used as required.
“While efforts will be made to minimize the impact of the road works, there may be delays while the work is completed, and motorists may need to consider adding some extra time to their journey.
“I thank motorists for their patience and cooperation during the construction period,” Mr Truss said.
The road works are funded under the Natural Disaster Recovery and Relief Arrangements (NDRRA), with up to 75 per cent of the project cost covered by the Federal Government and the remaining cost funded by the State Government.
