Station Road Widening Project

The Station Road Widening Project is aimed at improving road safety and pedestrian connectivity within Gympie’s CBD.

The project aims to improve Station Road by;

  • Improve pedestrian access by providing a 2.4m wide concrete path connecting Cogan Street roundabout to Bent Street.
  • Upgrading the stormwater drainage.
