Funding from the Queensland Government’s Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme (TIDS) will help North Burnett Regional Council deliver a 1.6-kilometre upgrade to the Gayndah Mount Perry Road at Mingo.

Les Hotz, Mayor of North Burnett Regional Council, said that the project will improve safety for passenger and heavy vehicles travelling along the Gayndah-Mount Perry Road.

“The works will widen and seal an approximately 1.6-kilometres section of road to a two-lane standard. Some targeted sections will be realigned to reduce some curves to improve safety for all motorists.”

“The new road surface will improve driving conditions and reduce the need for ongoing maintenance.”

“Works have commenced and are expected to be completed towards the end of the year. Council will continue to advocate for further State Government funding to continue the upgrade of the Gayndah-Mount Perry Road in future budgets.”

“Council acknowledges and thanks the Department of Transport and Main Roads for their commitment to road improvement projects in regional Queensland, and entrusting Council with the delivery of the project,” Mayor Hotz continued. “Such projects allow Council to improve local infrastructure while also supporting the local economy and employment opportunities.

Council advises motorists that work will generally be undertaken Monday through Friday, from 6am to 6pm. Traffic control will be in place for the duration of the project; therefore, residents and road users should plan to allow extra time when travelling.

Council appreciates road users’ patience throughout the construction period.
