Traffic delays expected during roadworks
WORK to strengthen and rebuild an 800-metre section of Oleander Avenue will start on Monday, May 16.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane during the $1.6 million project between Daydream Court and Kululu Crescent.
The work includes deep excavation, pavement reconstruction, new bike-safe stormwater pits,
sub-soil drainage, replacement of damaged kerb and channel, bitumen surfacing and asphalt overlay.
Oleander Avenue will be reduced to single lane, with two way traffic. Traffic disruption will be kept to a minimum but delays will occur.
"While the road will remain open during the project, we urge motorists to use alternate routes," Division 9 Councillor Stuart Taylor Said.
"Oleander Street is very important as it services the Kawungan School and links the eastern sections of Hervey Bay to the CBD."
A fact sheet on the project is available on the Council website www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au/oleander-avenue-pavement-renewal.
The project is scheduled to finish in mid-July, weather permitting.
