You had one job! 'Harvey' Bay splashed

Motorists heading onto the Tinana interchange from the south will be a little confused on where they are heading - Hervey or Harvey Bay.

MILLIONS of dollars were spent on upgrading the Tinana Interchange, but it seems the accompanying signs may have been an afterthought.

Hervey Bay was spelled as "Harvey Bay" on two new signs installed near the Bruce Hwy road works this week.

The Chronicle was bombarded with calls from bemused readers pointing out the glaring error at the main entrance to Maryborough.

A Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said the mistakes had been acknowledged and covered over after they were brought to the department's attention.

"The signs have been covered and a temporary plate is being installed," the spokesperson said.

"Replacement signs have been ordered and will be installed in the coming weeks."
