Plan for delays as $2m of resurfacing work starts

GLADSTONE Regional Council advises motorists of possible delays in southern parts of the region as road resurfacing works in Miriam Vale, Lowmead and Agnes Water are carried out.

Gladstone region Mayor Gail Sellers said dependent on weather work crews would be present at various locations from Monday.

"About $2m of resurfacing works will be widespread across the region with the majority of stage one Seal Works in rural areas," Cr Sellers said. 

"Motorists should plan for possible delays in these locations with complete stage one works expected to take about three to four weeks."

Starting Monday, works will occur on Round Hill Road, Lowmead Road, Hills Road, Taunton Road, Coast Road, Matchbox Road, Maud Hill Road, Hinrichs Road and Blackmans Gap Road.

"Traffic disruptions will be kept to a minimum but minor traffic disruptions are likely," Cr Sellers said.

As part of the regional program works will also include sections of road at Turkey Beach, Calliope, Beecher, Benaraby, Ambrose and Mt Larcom. 

The resurfacing program will involve a total road network length of 30km.

About $3m of stage two asphalt resurfacing work will then occur from March to May.
