DRIVERS will get a smoother ride in Maryborough after council crews completed $370,000 worth of road projects.

Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the works included widening a section of Odessa St, between Arnaud and Banana Sts in Granville.

"The bitumen has been line marked and resealed. New kerb and channelling has been constructed along with relevant drainage works," Cr O'Connell said.

New kerb and channelling was also built on the section of Arnaud St, between Dale and Odessa Sts, widening the road.

The works took three months to complete.

A concrete footpath has been constructed on Woodstock St in Maryborough, connecting Saltwater Creek Rd to Lennox St.

"We've had a run of good weather so there were very few rain delays and the projects were all completed on schedule," Cr O'Connell said.

An upgrade to the traffic lights at the Pallas St-Walker St intersection is also nearly finished.
