Road resealing works along Maleny-Stanley River Road and Maleny-Kenilworth Road (February 2012)

News that bitumen works are to commence later this month to reseal parts of Maleny-Stanley River Road and Maleny-Kenilworth Road has left me a little frustrated.  These works are part of the annual maintenance program but I’m disappointed that this money is not being spent on more urgent projects.  In particular I refer to the locally known ‘Goat Track’ along the Maleny-Kenilworth Road, just up the road from the most recent upgrade which is about to be re-sealed.  I can accept that there are different budget allocations for capital works and maintenance but the Department of Transport and Main Road’s continual ignorance over the state of this road is not acceptable.  Many of you know that I have held my ‘Great Walk’ – which involves me, and usually a team of people, walking from Little Yabba Creek into Maleny – for the past two years to highlight the bad state of this road and the need to do something about it. I have committed to completing this walk each and every year until the road upgrades are done.  For more information about the location of the resealing works please click here – Location of resealing road works
