Road works set to start on Upper Dawson Road

Published on 06 August 2020


Roadworks will start next week on Upper Dawson Road as part of a $340 000 upgrade from Rockhampton Regional Council.

Infrastructure Councillor Tony Williams said the works are part of a large scale program to improve high-use streets.

“The kerb and channel will be replaced on the eastern side of Upper Dawson Road, between Prospect Street and Church Street as part of the upgrade, as well as a new asphalt reseal and line marking between Prospect Street and Parnell Street,” Cr Williams said.

“These works are part of an ongoing program that has been carried out over recent years aimed at repairing and improving a number of high-use streets in Rockhampton to ensure safe and high-quality roads for our community.”

Divisional Councillor Drew Wickerson said the improvements are sure to be welcomed by motorists once complete.

“The works are set to take about ten weeks to complete and we thank everyone in advance for their patience, particularly those residing in this area,” Cr Wickerson said.

“Both lanes on Upper Dawson Road will stay open however with speed and parking restrictions in place. Given this, we are encouraging motorists who don’t live in the area to use a different route where possible.”
