Roadworks: Asphalt Resurfacing

Roadworks: Asphalt Resurfacing Keep an eye out for roadworks scheduled for November 9.

A number of Mount Isa streets are undergoing major resurfacing beginning Wednesday this week, with the works expected to finish November 9.

More than $750,000 worth of asphalt resurfacing will occur on Fifth Avenue, 23rd Avenue, Commercial Road car parking, Sunset Drive, Fisher Drive, and Short Street trenches.

Mayor Joyce McCulloch said the works were an important part of the Council’s services, and was pleased to announce that the cost was mostly funded through state and federal funding streams.

“The servicing of roads is an extremely part of any community, but it is always costly,” Cr McCulloch said.

“These current works have been made possible by a combination of Work for Qld (Stage 2) – State Government, Roads to Recovery (R2R), Federal Government and Council funding programs.”

Asphalt surfacing has been chosen as the method of resurfacing for this project, and although significantly more labour and equipment intensive to produce and lay, it offers superior corrective ability, a quieter and smoother ride and longer service life with up to two  to three times the life of the spray chip seal, benefiting all road users.

The works will begin this Wednesday and take approximately 10 days to complete.­
