“WDRC apologises in advance… but trusts the works being undertaken will be of great benefit to (everyone),” the letter read.

“During construction, short term road closures will be in place permitting access for local traffic flow only through the work site.

“Access to driveways in the immediate works area may be restricted for short periods during kerb work, concrete curing and bitumen and surfacing works.

“The works supervisor will contact affected residents and business prior to driveway interruption to arrange alternative access.

“Council will make its best effort to maintain customer access to businesses in the work area.”

The council will begin work on Inverai Rd, the Warrego and Wambo St intersection, and Short St in mid-February, and weather permitting, it is planned to wrap up in mid-May.

“The safety of residents, general public, and road users is of utmost importance whilst these construction works are in progress.”
