DRAFT PLANNING SCHEME FOR THE FRASER COAST IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR YOUR COMMENTS & VIEWING

LODGE YOUR VIEWPOINT NOW ON THE PROPOSED NEW PLANNING SCHEME FOR THE FRASER COAST

The draft Fraser Coast Planning Scheme is now open for public comment.

Submissions close at 4.45pm on Friday, 12 April 2013.

The draft Fraser Coast Planning Scheme will affect what you can do with your land, what your neighbour can do and what can happen in your street and neighbourhood. The new planning scheme will help Council to manage land use and development across the region in a sustainable way. It will help to plan for future growth while still ensuring that the Fraser Coast is a great place to live, work and play.

Council wants everyone to have their say on the draft Fraser Coast Planning Scheme and planning scheme policies, so the Fraser Coast can develop in a way that is consistent with the community’s vision. Public consultation will run from 18 February 2013 to 12 April 2013, with plenty of opportunities for you to gain information, both online and in your local area. In addition to ‘drop in’ information sessions to be held in Tiaro, Howard, Maryborough and Hervey Bay and a dedicated Planning Scheme Hotline, town planners will also be available to answer queries at the Maryborough and Hervey Bay Customer Service Centres.

BRUCE HIGHWAY UPGRADE WITH PASSING LANES BETWEEN TORBANLEA INTERSECTION & BURRUM RIVER ROAD FRASER COAST

THE BRUCE HIGHWAY BETWEEN THE TORBO INTERSECTION & BURRUM RIVER ROAD IS TO HAVE PASSING LANES INSTALLED.

 

The following letter was sent to me by the Main Roads Dept

Thank you for your email of 7 March 2013 requesting information about the Bruce Highway overtaking lane project near Torbanlea.

The $8 million federally-funded project to construct two overtaking lanes on the Bruce Highway between Howard and Torbanlea has commenced. The new north and southbound lanes – each 1.2km in length – will provide motorists with another opportunity to safely pass slow-moving vehicles.

To carry out these works safely and efficiently, traffic controllers, single-lane closures and speed restrictions will be in place as required. Works will generally be carried out between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Motorists are asked to be patient, drive to the changed conditions and obey all signage while these works are underway. Motorists should expected changed conditions and allow additional time for their journey, when necessary.

FK Gardner and Sons Group has been awarded the project contract, which is expected to be completed in late 2013, weather permitting.

For further information about the works, call 1300 728 390 during business hours, email bundaberg.office@tmr.qld.gov.au or visit www.tmr.qld.gov.au.

Also for your information, the Australian Government released a combined media statement about the overtaking lane project and another nearby project at Howard – web address below:
