Record-breaking road works

Posted: 8am 06 Nov 2020

Wheels are set to roll in Caboolture on the biggest road resurfacing project in Moreton Bay Regional Council’s 2020-21 program.

A massive $1.5 million in works get underway tomorrow (Saturday) at Caboolture Industrial Estate to repair and resurface 1.6 kilometres of road.

Mayor Peter Flannery said crews would work through the night and on weekends to have the job done within two weeks, minimising the impacts on local businesses and residents.

Future proofed

“This project is more than just laying out asphalt, it’s about future-proofing this industrial precinct to ensure the 176 local businesses and those in the surrounding area remain connected and operate with confidence,” he said.

“Best of all, the project is also backing local business, with Narangba-based company Fulton Hogan delivering the works which will support more than 80 local jobs.

“This project is Council’s single largest financial investment in road resurfacing this financial year, in fact we’ll be laying more asphalt tonnes per 12h-hour shift than council has ever delivered.”

Night works

The two-week program of works (weather dependent) will be done along the entire lengths of Piper St, Auster Ct, Skyreach St, Cessna Dr.

Mayor Flannery urged motorists to drive to the conditions within the project site.

“Crews will work across 36-hour weekend shifts and night works to help minimise impacts on local businesses and residents,” he said.

“Signage has been placed to alert motorists of the changes to local traffic conditions and we thank local residents, businesses and staff for the patience while we undertake this vital work.

“Investing in our industrial precincts is investing in economic growth, local jobs, and business attraction for our region.”
