Upgrades for Rural Roads
Published on 30 June 2020
A $250,000 project to improve Aremby Road in Bouldercombe is now complete, with 750m of bitumen seal making the drive smoother than ever.
Infrastructure spokesperson Councillor Tony Williams said Council was committed to the upkeep and improvement of the region’s rural roads.
“We have over 1330km of rural roads in our region, and our teams work hard all year round to keep them in good condition,” said Cr Williams.
“The Aremby Road work is a great example of this, with 750m of bitumen seal meaning residents can have a smoother drive.
“Just last week we added even more roads to our rural road maintenance program, passing a Council motion that we would now maintain longer sections of Flaherty Road in Stanwell, Hughes Road in Alton Downs, and Smalls Road in Mount Morgan.”
Divisional Councillor Ellen Smith said that she was delighted to see the improvements to Aremby Road.
“This is in addition to other recent improvements in the area, especially on Nugett Avenue and Oleander Avenue.
“Improvements to these roads were first raised at Community Conversation meetings in Bouldercombe, so I am really pleased that we were able to listen to local residents and get this work done.”
