Boosting power to Rosedale

A $2.8 MILLION project to extend three-phase power to Rosedale has been completed, allowing for a more reliable electricity supply and improved safety for the region.

Ergon Energy area operations manager Craig Harris said 13km of high-voltage Single Wire Earth Return line from Waree Road through to the township had been upgraded in recent months.

“The capacity of the line has been increased to cater for the growth in demand for power from the 220 customers in the Rosedale community who will benefit from this project,” Mr Harris said.

Mr Harris said the reliability of supply in the Rosedale region and safety of the network also had been improved with the installation of automatic reclosers at tee-off points along the line.

“These will reduce the number of customers affected by storm-related outages,” he said.

Mr Harris thanked customers in the area for their patience during a number of power supply interruptions, which were necessary so crews could safely complete the project.

Recreational group

THE Woodgate Recreation Club is on the lookout for new members to join, according to president Coral Wills.

The group meets at the Woodgate Community Hall each Wednesday afternoon from 12.30pm to 5pm to play social games of cards (Bolivia), indoor bowls and mahjong.

The club met last Wednesday for their final 2009 get-together, but look forward to meeting new members when they resume activities on January 13 next year.

Admission is $3.

Calling all players

THE annual Eidsvold Musicians Muster is gearing up to be a great event, with a range of artists from the North Burnett region preparing to storm the stage on New Year’s Eve.

The celebrations start at 7pm with a barbecue, raffles, a bar, and live performances by local musical stars.

Any budding musicians who want to take part in the event can telephone music coordinator Bob Bramley on 4165 1169 to organise a time to perform.

Gearing up for new display

REVHEADS and art lovers alike can look forward to a new exhibition at Mundubbera Regional Art Gallery.

A display exploring Australia’s “car culture” will run at the gallery from January 8 to February 18 next year.

Titled HOON, the exhibition was created by Daniel Wallwork, a Cairns-based artist and graphic designer who experiments with automotive spraypainting and graffiti art.

“From muscle cars, drag racing and drift racing, to hot rods, street machines and custom culture, they all come and line up for burnouts on the gallery walls,” Mr Wallwork said.

“I particularly hope that car enthusiasts and local hoons, who would not normally come to an exhibition, come out to see the works.”

It is presented by Queensland Arts Council’s Ontour onexhibition.
