Work to be done on 8 footpaths

HERVEY Bay is stepping into footpath heaven with the Fraser Coast Regional Council giving a tentative green light to building or replacing eight of them in the 2010-2011 financial year.

Councillors decided work on the footpath on Main Street between Torquay and Old Maryborough roads in Pialba would be put on hold for a new section rather than the replacement that had been recommended.

But the Pialba-Burrum Heads Road adjacent to Yarrilee State School will get a new footpath, as will the Maryborough-Hervey Bay Road between Ibis Boulevard and Old Maryborough Road.

The footpath on Burrum Street along the caravan park frontage is on the new construction list.

The path on Urangan’s Miller Street between Herbert and Stewart streets as well as the Eli Waters lagoon walkway are in line for replacements.

In Maryborough, the footpath on Ferry Street between Albert and Alice streets will be newly constructed.

Councillors will finally decide on the footpaths and bikeways at the next ordinary meeting.
