Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP, and Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington are thrilled to announce that as the result of a petition tabled in Parliament last year, the D’Aguilar Highway at Stony Creek will be receiving nearly four kilometres worth of repaving.
The pavement rehabilitation work will begin just east of Eaton Lane and end slightly east of Mary Smokes Creek in Stony Creek.
“This is a project that Deb and I have been fighting for alongside you, the community. Last year, when we tabled our ‘stop patching the D’Ag, start resurfacing now’ petition in Parliament, it had received hundreds of signatures from concerned residents and road users alike. You asked for it and we’ve delivered!” commented Mr Powell.
“This section of the Highway between Woodford and Kilcoy deteriorates every single time it rains, making the road unsafe for motorists. The announcement that resurfacing works are due to begin in a couple of weeks (mid-February) could not have come at a better time,” Mrs Frecklington stated.
The roadworks will largely be carried out in daylight hours, Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm. Drivers may encounter minor delays whilst travelling through the works, however the Department of Transport and Main Roads will be working with contractors to ensure that there are minimal disturbances to your commute.
“This is truly a great outcome for the Glass House and Nanango electorates and we look forward to bringing you similar achievements in the years to come” stated Mrs Frecklington.
“Deb and I are both aware that more needs to be done to improve road safety between Woodford and Kilcoy, so this is just the beginning for us,” concluded Mr Powell.
