Monto CBD to be revitalised
THE Monto CBD is set to be revitalised under the North Burnett Regional Council 'Works for Queensland' funding by the State Government.
The project should help stimulate growth and improve minor infrastructure across Regional Queensland with Council receiving $360,000 to improve the CBD.
Following community consultation with local businesses and the wider community earlier in March and July, council identified the main focus will be to improve the main street footpath rather than the road.
The work is expected to commence in August and will take approximately three months to complete.
A spokesperson for the North Burnett Regional Council said people may experience disruption but it would be minimised.
"We trust that community members will find the completed project has improved safety and accessibility for pedestrians and be aesthetically pleasing," the spokesperson said.
"If you have any significant factors which you believe council should be aware of prior to the commencement of works, please contact council's engineering department immediately. Council will continue to inform and consult with the Monto community during the project."
The North Burnett Regional Council will ensure safety is paramount throughout the whole process.
"Upon commencement of works, appropriate signage and barricades will be in place," the spokesperson said.
"Motorists and pedestrians are requested to travel with extreme care and responsibility, to drive / walk to the prevailing road / pavement conditions and to adhere to signage."
The whole project is expected to be complete by November.
