The revitalisation of Proserpine Main Street will become a step closer by the end of 2016 with Whitsunday Regional Council commencing works today to upgrade the stormwater drainage system between Hinschen Street and Chapman Street.
Deputy Mayor John Collins said the $627,362 upgrade is part of Council’s Capital Works Program for 2016/17 with works scheduled to be completed by November, weather permitting.
“The storm water drainage upgrade will include installation of reinforced concrete pipes, box culverts, kerb and channel and associated pavement reconstruction,” Cr Collins said.
“The completion of the upgrade will allow council the option to roll out more of the 2012 Proserpine Main Street Streetscape Masterplan which has already been completed within the Herbert to Chapman intersections,” he said.
Whilst Council will endeavor to keep disruptions to a minimum, we regret that traffic delays will occur due to partial and full road closures along this section of the street at times in order to undertake the works. However, accesses to the properties and business premises will be maintained at all times during this work.
The project crew will work five days a week from Monday to Friday between the hours of 6:30am to 5:00pm as required.
Council’s Works Department will undertake the upgrade in six stages. Details of the staged works and anticipated timeframes can be viewed on Council’s website.
