Caloundra Road partially closed this Wednesday
  • Tuesday 17 August 2010

Drivers travelling westbound on the Caloundra Road, Wednesday 18 August from 5.30pm are advised that one lane will be closed to allow fire crews access to the Isabel Jordan Bushland Reserve.

The road will be closed westbound from the intersection at Industrial Avenue to just past the roundabout on Daniel Street for approximately three hours.

Council together with Queensland Fire and Rescue will conduct a fuel hazard reduction burn in the Bushland Reserve as part of a proactive fire management program.

Caloundra Fire Station has issued council with a 'permit to light fire' # E320690.

The purpose of the burn is to reduce the available fuel in the event of a wildfire, making it easier for emergency services to fight any fires and protect property.
