Palmwoods-Montville Road to re-open Tuesday 20 August 2013

After three years of reconstruction work I am pleased to confirm Palmwoods-Montville Road will re-open from tomorrow – Tuesday 20 August.

This is a long time coming for residents and I appreciate their ongoing patience and support while works were conducted.

The department have worked using innovative engineering solutions to ensure the long-term stability of the road, including the use of lightweight fill laid under the road at the horseshoe bend.

These works form part of a $28 million package of works.

The project was delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements, a joint federal and state initiative. Under these arrangements, the Australian Government provides 75 per cent of funding, with 25 per cent from the Queensland Government
