East and South flood works being carried out in May

BUNDABERG Regional Council contractor CMC is scheduled to carry out flood restoration works in East and South Bundaberg from next month.

Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesman Tony Ricciardi said, weather permitting, the works would get under way early May.

"Road users in both East and South Bundaberg will be affected by these works, however directly affected residents will be contacted by CMC," Cr Ricciardi said.

"Variable message boards will also be used to alert motorists in the area of the works and the possibility of having to take an alternative route."

Cr Ricciardi said the council was urging motorists to observe the road works signage and follow traffic control instructions.

This restoration work is being delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements, a joint Federal (75%) and State (25%) government initiative.

"Council thanks residents for their patience and co-operation during the flood event NDRRA restoration works which are expected to be fully complete by December 2014," Cr Ricciardi said.

Should you need assistance because of the flood restoration work being performed near you, please call the contractor on hotline number 1300 663 899.
