Cr Baberowski - Roys, Gympie and Storrs Road upgrades
  • Monday 30 November 2015

Good news on three important local roads: A $1.1 million upgrade to Roys Road has started, that will widen and improve the road surface for a 1.1km stretch from the Burys Road intersection to just past the old forestry depot.

Work on the older section of the Old Gympie road, 2.4km north from the intersection of Beerburrum-Woodford Road will strengthen the pavement and provide a new surface.

In Peachester, safety upgrades have also begun in order to widen and improve sight lines on Storrs Road. Work includes earthworks, drainage and asphalting.

Traffic controls will be in place during all these upgrades and, while council will do everything it can to avoid traffic delays, some will be unavoidable so thank you in advance for your patience.

Have your say on our trees

Don’t forget to have your say on council’s draft Strategic Tree and Native Vegetation Management Policy and Tree Management Procedure. The plans are on council’s website and submissions can be provided through an online survey via council’s website, until 5 pm December 15, 2015.

100 years of pineapples

Congrats to the Moffat family! Did you know they have been farming pineapples in the Glass House Mountains district for more than a century, and their business produces 600-tonnes of pineapples annually? What a rich agricultural history we have in the hinterland!

Season’s greetings

In case I don’t get another chance, may I wish everyone on the Range a happy and safe festive season. I look forward to another productive year in 2016.
