Media Release – COUNCIL ADVISES OF TREE REMOVAL AHEAD OF ROAD UPGRADE

The Bundaberg Regional Council is advising residents that a number of trees will need to be removed from the Bargara Rotary Park to make way for road upgrades on the southern side of the Money’s Creek Causeway.

Division 5 representative, Cr Greg Barnes said that while the removal of any trees was regrettable, in this case it was unavoidable as the impending works have been designed to optimise the improved ‘lines of sight’ which are pivotal to the safety of both motorists and pedestrians who use the area.

“Council surveyors have begun setting out the boundary for the extent of works, which are scheduled to commence early in the new financial year and hopefully be completed by the Christmas holiday break,” Cr Barnes said.

“Apart from the roundabout, the project will also deliver a new section of footpath and safer pedestrian crossing points.

“A few of the larger trees and a stand of smaller trees will have to be removed from the Park next week however as the work proceeds Council will be making every effort to minimise any impact on the park’s footprint. At the completion of the works we will also be looking at re-planting suitable species in appropriate locations to complement the park reserve.”

“Work to remove the trees is expected to be undertaken in the next week however no inconvenience should be caused to the travelling public.”

The Causeway Drive Roundabout project has been fully funded through the Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery Program and the State Government’s Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme.

Council does not envisage any inconvenience for motorists, however pedestrians are urged to stay clear of the designated construction zones.
