Council roads sealed and delivered

Gympie Regional Council crews have this week completed council’s largest ever road reseal program. 

A total of 525,000 square meters has been resealed with fresh bitumen and stone. The areas are equivalent to 77 rugby league fields.  

 “Road resealing is part of this Council’s back-to-basics mandate,” said Gympie region Mayor Glen Hartwig.  

“I spoke recently at the Chambers of Commerce business breakfast about the necessity to provide residents and visitors to this region with a quality and safe road network. 

“The completion of this program means we are, in effect, reducing the cost of maintaining our roads for the community.  

“The new road surface protects the pavement and ensures we are providing a long-term, cost effective solution. 

“I would like to also acknowledge council staff who worked extremely hard to get this work done. The community appreciates your efforts,” Mayor Hartwig said.  

More than 230 individual sections of road were included in the program.
