Repairs to Mary River Walkway in Tinana begin again

WORK has started to repair more than 120m of the popular Mary River Walkway in Tinana.

The 3m-wide walkway suffered significant damage during the 2011 floods.

Mayor Gerard O'Connell said repair work started in January but was affected by flooding over the 2013 Australia Day weekend.

"The concrete pathway was essentially washed into the Mary River in some areas," he said

The work involves raising and rebuilding the pathway and replacing the balustrades.

"The area is still very wet and the crews have haven't been able to get some of the heavier machinery into the area, which has slowed progress," Cr O'Connell said.

"The walkway is very popular with walkers and cyclists and we're working hard to have the project finished as soon as possible."

The project is being funded under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery arrangements.

It will be completed by the end of August, weather permitting.
