Roadworks begin to repair flood damage on Cooloola road

WORK has started on rebuilding a flood-damaged section of the Maryborough-Cooloola Coast Rd, between Bidwill and Boonooroo Rds.

Federal Member for Wide Bay and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said the works included a new pavement overlay and were expected to be finished next month.

"The final seals will be completed in early 2014," he said.

"Motorists may need to consider adding some extra time to their journey."
