Road Resurfacing Program Worth $15.8 Million
Published 09 June 2021
Moreton Bay Regional Council is already getting the 2021-22 Budget show on the road by awarding $15.8 million in road resurfacing contracts, so the job of repairing the regional road network can continue uninterrupted.
Mayor Peter Flannery said the works would be completed by two companies, including local Narangba contactor Suncoast Asphalt and Downer Group.
“All roads lead to Moreton Bay Region and we want to keep trucking on with our road resurfacing program, so you’ll be seeing these costs as a line item when the 2021-22 Budget is handed down next week,” Mayor Flannery said.
“This $15.8 million program will see an incredible 81km of roads resurfaced, covering 173 individual projects, which is more than the distance from Samford to Bribie Island.
“These works ultimately increase vehicle safety and the roads’ structural rideability by improving pavement surface quality and reducing recurrent maintenance.
“The region’s roads are one of our most critical and expensive assets, which is why Council continues to prioritise their maintenance.
“These works help make our streets smoother, safer and more enjoyable to use every day while getting residents home quicker.
“Projects being delivered span across the region, from the recently completed $1.5 million Caboolture Industrial Estate, $1.38 million Duffield Road, Clontarf and $474,000 Wruck Crescent, Albany Creek.
“Our road resurfacing program also incorporates the use of both standard and environmental mix designs.
“Using recycled materials such as crushed glass, and recycled plastics and asphalt; we’re paving the way for greener roads!”
