M'boro business owner still has concerns about CBD work

AT LEAST one Maryborough business owner still has concerns about the council's planned CBD construction work despite a likely cut in the time frame from 32 weeks to 18 weeks.

Claudia Davidson, owner of Cores Lucky Black Cat Casket Agency in Adelaide St, said she was concerned but was waiting until the council's planned information session on April 8 to find out more.

"I'm trying to keep an open mind until the meeting," she said.

Ms Davidson said cutting the construction time was a step in the right direction.

She said other business owners in the CBD shared her concerns, with her number one worry being losing power and being unable to operate her business.

Fraser Coast councillor Daniel Sanderson said the council was doing all it could to minimise disruptions.

"But in the end the work has to be done to refurbish the CBD so that it remains an asset to the city," he said.

JAC Civil will use two crews working around the clock and on weekends to minimise the time spent on the project.
