Four bridges to close over the next month
NORTH Burnett Regional Council has announced that four bridges will close over the next month.
As part of North Burnett Regional Council's NDRRA program, the bridges will be closed for approximately two weeks from Saturday September 17 while betterment works are undertaken.
The projects will involve the reconstruction of one or both of the bridge approaches and replacement of the sealed pavement with concrete.
In a statement, council said they are unable to construct side tracks for these locations.
"Work has been scheduled to coincide with the finish of the fruit picking season and to minimise disruption to local school buses," the statement said.
"The bridges are expected to re-open Monday, 3 October 2016, weather permitting.
"The road closures will ensure the completion of more cost effective, quicker and safer projects, and when complete, the upgraded roads will provide greater flood resilience."
