Aug 25, 2017 | Front Page Feature, News

Monto has their say…

As part of North Burnett Regional Council’s Works for Queensland (W4Q) Monto CBD Revitalisation project, community members were recently invited to ‘have their say’.

North Burnett Regional Council Mayor, Cr Rachel Chambers would like to thank all community members and visitors to the region that took time out to complete the Monto CBD Revitalisation project survey.

“The survey, which encouraged residents and visitors to provide feedback on the preferred colour schemes, parking preferences, types of plants and pots for the Monto main street was received with great enthusiasm from our community members,” Mayor Chambers said.

“Results are still being collated however we have determined that ‘Sandy Beige’ is the preferred primary footpath colour, being the main choice of 40.38% of survey participants.”

“Keep an eye out for future updates as additional results from the community survey will be advised as details are confirmed,” Mayor Chambers said.

Residents are reminded that work has commenced on footpath correction and replacement works in Newton Street, Monto. The footpath works are the precursor for the Monto CBD Revitalisation project which will encompass the replacement of sections of damaged footpath and preparation for the application of coloured surfacing; erection of new notice boards; up-grade of shade structure; installation of crossings and sections of kerb and channel with grated cover; pavement (road) repairs; and re-marking of roadway.

Residents are advised that footpath works have been scheduled in the following stages:

  • Stage 1 – Monday, 21 August on the top northern side of Newton Street, from vacant land down to Mitre 10 (please refer to map, attached), for approximately three (3) weeks.
  • Stage 2 – Saturday, 9 September from Mitre 10 to BOQ (please refer to map, attached), for approximately three (3) weeks.
  • Stage 3 – Saturday, 30 September from BOQ to Café Delicious (please refer to map, attached), for approximately three (3) weeks.

Council appreciates that these works will result in substantial disruption to businesses and residents alike, however, wherever possible, this disruption will be minimised. If you have any significant factors which you believe Council should be aware of prior to the works, please contact Council’s Engineering Department immediately.

To expedite the project, works are scheduled to be undertaken on both weekdays and weekends. Council wishes to advise that there may be inconveniences to pedestrian and vehicular traffic during construction works, however Council will endeavour to ensure access to individual businesses is maintained at all times.

During this period, vehicular traffic will be reduced to one lane, with traffic only able to traverse on the opposite side of the road to the construction works. Appropriate signage and barricades will be in place.

Motorists and pedestrians are requested to travel with extreme care and responsibility, to drive / walk to the prevailing road / pavement conditions and to adhere to signage. Council apologises for any inconvenience caused whilst this work is being completed and thanks businesses and the public for their co-operation and patience whilst this work is in progress.
