Weather stops work in its tracks
BAD WEATHER has delayed the completion of roadworks on Maryborough’s Kent Street which were to have been completed last month but are now due to finish at the end of this month.
Kent and Guava streets were partially closed in July to allow Downer EDI Rail to lay new railway tracks to move locomotives on and off the manufacturing site.
A Downer EDI Rail spokeswoman said adverse weather conditions had delayed the work which was now expected to be completed in about two weeks.
She said one lane of Kent Street was open to traffic and the resealing works on the western side of the street were to be completed yesterday, weather permitting.
The repair and removal of a proportion of the sub-grade on the eastern lane was due to start next week.
