BLAIN STREET, BARGARA TO BE RE-SURFACED & WIDENED

After receiving a number of complaints over recent several months, sections of Blain Street, between Hughes Road & Davidson Street, Bargara are scheduled to be widened, stabilised and asphalt re-sealed commencing this Monday 28th October. As previously reported, the work had originally been scheduled for August but was delayed due to the large amount of other roadworks being undertaken throughout the region.

As part of the works, a concrete culvert will also be installed in the existing narrow section of open drain along the northern alignment from near the Fairway Drive intersection and extending eastwards for a distance of about 80 metres to meet up with the wider open drain. The roadway will then be widened by approximately 1 metre on top of the culvert before a new asphalt surface is applied to finish the job.

It’s obvious that many motorists prefer to use the Blain Street route betweeen Hughes Road and the Bargara Central/CBD area instead of the Hughes Road & Bargara Road intersection. As a result, the level of required maintenance has increased significantly over recent years and the ongoing ‘band-aid’ patching of pot holes simply isn’t keeping up with demand.

Council has been keen to ensure that the timing of the proposed repairs and improved drainage will see the work completed before the onset of the wet season.

There are bound to be a number of traffic delays during the works and motorists are urged to consider using alternative routes via Hughes Road & Davidson Street as appropriate.
