Roma footpaths to close for new constructions
As footpath construction works across Roma hit the halfway mark, new paths will be built through the west side of Roma in 2021.
Over the past two months, three new sections of footpath were constructed along Roma’s Adungadoo Pathway and are now available for public use.
After a short Christmas break, Maranoa Regional Council’s construction team has returned and started construction on the Currey Street footpaths; from Wheeler Drive to McDowall Street and Beetson Drive to McDowall Street.
These works are part of the COVID Works for Queensland initiative, funded by both the State Government and the council
The council believes these paths will help connect the two residential estates to existing paths located outside Roma’s newly constructed hospital.
The works kicked off on January 4 with construction planned to take approximately six weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Access to parts of the Currey Street paths will be temporarily closed while works are
Footpath works will be contained within the road shoulder and nature strip to minimise impacts to passing motorists.
Signage and barriers will be in place to help guide pedestrians.
Maranoa Regional Council staff plan to liaise directly with affected residents during the delivery of the project to minimise disruption to properties wherever possible.
The council would like to thank affected residents for their co-operation and patience while these works are completed.
