Media Release – TEMPORARY SEAL APPLIED TO BARGARA CAUSEWAY

Bundaberg Regional Council is thanking Bargara residents for their patience as flood restoration works are carried out on The Causeway at Moneys Creek.

A Council contractor commenced the works, which were expected to take one day, last week however Council’s Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Tony Ricciardi said when profiling the existing surface, unforeseen conditions were encountered. 

“Additional works are now required and in the interim period a temporary seal has been applied to enable The Causeway to remain open to traffic,” Cr Ricciardi said.

“Understandably, a section of the temporary surface has deformed, however the road has been able to remain open for the convenience of residents and visitors alike.”

Divisional representative Cr Greg Barnes said he wanted to ensure motorists that the current repair was only temporary.

“We’re mindful of how vital this link is between south and north Bargara and applied the surface to keep it open until final repairs can be completed,” Cr Barnes said.

Over the coming week, Council engineers will conduct tests on the road which requires one lane to be closed.

“With only one lane open motorists should anticipate delays and where possible, use alternative routes,” Cr Ricciardi said.

“We also expect that following the tests, the entire causeway will need to be closed to traffic for up to five hours to install a new structural layer of asphalt.

“That work will be carried out on a weekday between 9am and 3pm to minimise the disruption of school bus routes, although some disruption to community bus routes may occur.

“We’ll be keeping the public informed during the works through the use of roadside variable message boards which will enable them to plan alternative routes where applicable,” Cr Ricciardi said.

Council also intends to resurface the footpath before the final surfacing of The Causeway.
