Gladstone Regional Council NDRRA Betterment program Gladstone Regional Council NDRRA Betterment program

Gladstone Regional Council (GRC) is progressing the betterment works to upgrade Council’s drainage infrastructure, including many floodways damaged by 2015 ex-Tropical Cyclone Marcia. The project is jointly funded by Gladstone Regional Council, the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) program.

Miriam Vale Plant Hire has been awarded the contract and has commenced to upgrade Council's drainage infrastructure and will continue to early December (weather permitting) along Blackmans Gap Road, Boyne Valley.

The works will necessitate heavy construction equipment movement on the road and cause potential traffic delays, side tracks and detour routes around floodways under restoration. Works will be conducted under traffic control, between the hours of 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.

For the safety of the residents and road users, please be aware of these works and observe all signage in place for their duration. Miriam Vale Plant Hire and Gladstone Regional Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates the cooperation of all road users.

Signs and speed restrictions will be in place for the duration of the works. Your adherence to these instructions will be greatly appreciated for your safety, as well as the safety of the people carrying out the work.
