This project is part of a planned upgrade of the strategic road link between Crows Nest and Blackbutt. Work undertaken this financial year is a continuation of the upgrade project, bringing the remaining gravel sections to seal standard on Pierces Creek Road from Emu Creek Road to Oakey Creek.
This is a staged project, with budget allocated in the 2016/17 financial year to commence the upgrade of the gravel section of Peirces Creek road between Emu Creek Road to Oakey Creek. $2.7 million has been allocated in the 2018/19 financial year to complete the remaining 3 km section. Subject to future budget allocations, a number of upgrades to the remaining gravel sections are planned in following years.
Pierces Creek Road is an important transport link and these works have been planned to improve safety and efficiency.
The project has already started with the design phase. Construction and associated work will commence after July 2018.
