The new selling pens and drafts are being built on the eastern side of the yards and will make way for additional receival/delivery yards on the western side of the yards. Stage 1 of the Improvement Plan is set to be completed in April 2019 (weather permitting).
Councillor Peter Flynn, Portfolio Chair for the Roma Saleyards said it is fantastic to see the construction of the new selling yards developing and to see how much more room it will make for additional receival/delivery yards once completed.
"Seeing strong progress on the Saleyards Improvement Plan is a great achievement for Maranoa Regional Council and we look forward to the continual development in the coming months," Cr Flynn said.
The total cost of the Roma Saleyards Improvement Plan – Stage 1 project is approximately $2.173 million.
The Roma Saleyards Improvement Plan – Stage 1 is a joint initiative of Maranoa Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
