Footpath works connecting to new hospital commence in Roma

Over the past two months, residents may have noticed the three new sections of footpath constructed along Roma's Adungadoo Pathway which are now available for public use.

After a short Christmas break, the team has returned and commenced construction on the Currey Street Pathways; from Wheeler Drive to McDowall Street and Beetson Drive to McDowall Street. These pathways aim to connect the two residential estates to existing pathways located outside Roma's newly constructed hospital.

The works commenced Monday, 4 January 2021, with construction planned to take approximately six (6) weeks to complete (weather permitting).

Access to parts of the Currey Street Pathways will be temporarily closed while works are underway. 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.

Council staff will liaise directly with affected residents during the delivery of the project to minimise disruption to properties wherever possible.

Council thanks affected residents for their cooperation and patience while these works are completed.

This COVID Works for Queensland project is a joint initiative of the Maranoa Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
