REPAIR work to more than 35km of flood and rain-damaged roads in the Bundaberg region has begun this week.
The Operation Queenslander project involves repairs to eight roads and the works will include shoulder widening, stabilisation and road surface work to reconstruct the damaged roads.
The reconstruction works will take place at several locations including more than 15km of Goodwood Rd across 12 sites, more than 6km of Elliott Heads Rd across six sites and 5km of the Isis Hwy at five sites.
Other roads to be repaired include Bundaberg-Bargara Rd, Bundaberg-Port Rd, Bundaberg-Miriam Vale Rd, Cedars Rd and Innes Park Rd.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has warned there will be traffic controllers, single lane closures and speed restrictions as required on the affected roads.
Motorists are urged to be patient, drive to the changed conditions and obey all signage while the works are carried out.
A Main Roads spokeswoman said the reconstruction would support the regional economy by ensuring major industries including tourism, agriculture, resource and construction could continue to operate.
Australian-based Abigroup Contractors was awarded the contract to undertake the $25.8 million worth of works in a boost for construction.
The Operation Queenslander program of works is being delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).
It is 75% funded by the Federal Government and 25% funded by the State Government.
