Council has completed the extension of the white picket fence in front of the Landsborough tennis courts. Not only does this help identify the upgraded entry, it also makes it safer for families to use the area of grass and table setting next to the recently upgraded tennis courts. New signage is still to come.
Become a work of art
High-profile artist Kelsey Montague’s #whatliftsyou interactive wings have arrived at Beerwah Tower Green, giving residents an opportunity to take a fun photo using the artwork as a backdrop (see my Facebook page for a look at the new CEO with Kesley's wings). The wings feature local icons such as the Big Pineapple, Glass House Mountains, bunyas and more, and will remain in Beerwah until 23 November.

Hodgens Road – bridge replacement
Work started last week to replace the Hodgens Road Bridge in Bald Knob that can no longer be maintained to the standard required. The new single lane bridge will be widened and will include steel guardrails. The new bridge will also have a higher deck level to help prevent flooding during major storm events. For those affected your patience during construction is appreciated.
Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve funding
The receipt of $1 million Queensland Tourism Infrastructure Fund grant to renew the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve building is fantastic news. Guided by the results of stakeholder consultation, the grant will go towards enabling the establishment of a new $3-4m new discovery centre, cafe, gift shop, elevated viewing platform, meeting theatrette, conservation research area, offices and amenities.
