Roadworks under way on Bauple-Woolooga Rd
RECONSTRUCTION work to repair flood-damaged sections of the Bauple-Woolooga and Gympie-Woolooga Rds, has begun.
Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss said work was under way between Gootchie and Woolooga, on sections of the Bauple-Woolooga Rd, and between Upper Widgee and the Wide Bay Hwy, along the Gympie-Woolooga Rd.
"The roadworks include repairs to stabilise the road base, rehabilitate the road surface and improve road drainage," he said.
"Work will be undertaken between 6am and 6pm and the reconstruction is expected to conclude by 17 September 2014, 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 minimize the impact of the roadworks, motorists may need to consider adding some extra time to their journey in the event that the construction causes delays.
"I thank motorists for their patience and cooperation during the construction period."
Mr Truss said the roadworks were funded under the Natural Disaster Recovery and Relief Arrangements, with up to 75% of the project cost covered by the Federal Government and the remaining cost funded by the State Government.
