Mundubbera Aerodrome to reopen later this month
NORTH Burnett Regional Council says the official reopening ceremony for the Mundubbera Aerodrome will happen on Saturday, September 26 in conjunction with the '100 Years of Local Government in Mundubbera' celebrations.
North Burnett Mayor Don Waugh has invited community members to attend this historic event, and meet the many people who made this project a success.
"There are significant long-term benefits which the work on the Mundubbera Aerodrome will deliver to not just the Mundubbera community, but the region," he said.
"Council is keen to assist with an increase and diversification of the use of the aerodrome, and to maximise the opportunity of direct linkages to Wellcamp in Toowoomba and the international community."
Locally sourced fill was used to construct the runway and, at various stages, 35 council employees and 35 contractors were employed on the project.
"North Burnett businesses have benefitted from the project's support requirements through purchases such as concrete, gravel, pipes, fuel, mechanical repairs, accommodation and food," Cr Waugh said.
"This project was truly a regional commitment thus ensuring monies spent stayed in local pockets wherever possible, with this model expected to continue with the aerodrome upgrade projects at Gayndah and Monto."
The ceremony will start at 11.30am.
