Kilcoy roadworks will improve traffic flow and safety

ROADWORKS currently underway in Kilcoy will improve traffic flow and safety while reducing rat-running on residential streets, Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann confirmed this week.

Works along William and Mary streets are being delivered by Somerset Regional Council in partnership with the Queensland Government’s Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).

The project also includes improvements to the intersections at both ends of Mary Street.

Works will incorporate new linemarking and pedestrian and cycle lane facilities, lighting upgrades and changes to some car parks.

Councillor Lehmann said council and TMR were committed to improving road conditions in Kilcoy.

“These works are the best solution for the Kilcoy community,” Cr Lehmann said.

“The introduction of parallel parking along Mary Street will provide more space for people to enter and exit vehicles, bringing Kilcoy parking arrangements into line with other Somerset townships.

“Importantly, it is the only option that has been endorsed by TMR, and it will allow more than 6,000 motorists a day to move freely through the township.”

Works are expected to be completed in mid-2020, weather and construction schedule permitting.

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.
After 39 years in Local Government, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.

Welcome to our little town❣️As everyone knows, each Saturday morning Yowie Park is a hive of activity with people participating in the Yowie Park Run. Well last Saturday 13 April the gallery was visited by some British International park runners who apparently flew in Friday to run the Yowie park run on the international circuit! They then visited the gallery and bought one of Noela Lowien's artworks from her Artist of the Month wall! Aptly, it just happened to be her painting of a yowie! Great souvenir to take back to the UK of their visit to Kilcoy, don't you think? ... See MoreSee Less
