Intersection Upgrade Arundell Avenue and Mill Lane
The Arundell Avenue and Mill Lane intersection is an important link between the schools and industrial areas to the west, Nambour Mill precinct, the Nambour Township and residential areas.
The intersection upgrade will reduce traffic delays currently experienced and reduce congestion during peak hours at the intersection in the future.
All efforts will be made to limit works in peak traffic times, however commuters are encouraged to take alternate routes and to avoid the work area where possible.
Construction crews will contact residents and businesses prior to starting any works which may affect property access and to advise of night works.
Access for pedestrians who need to pass through the area will be restricted at times and they will be escorted past the work site to ensure safety for all
Advance signage will installed to advise motorists of lane closures and detours throughout construction period.
New Reconciliation Action Plan
At last week’s Ordinary Meeting (25 March) I was very pleased to help endorse Council’s Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2021-2022. The implementation of this Innovate RAP will continue to build and strengthen the relationships that are essential for the journey towards reconciliation with the Traditional Owners and First Nations People. Kabi Kabi Elder Aunty Helena Gulash welcomed us and spoke about the journey that lay ahead to build a dynamic partnership founded on truth telling and listening to each other’s stories. A number of new initiatives have been introduced within council’s new RAP that will support self-determination through economic and community development. This will include the development of a First Nations’ recruitment, retention, professional development and procurement strategy.
Division 10 works
Works are now underway on the major refurbishment of Yandina Cricket Club. The project involves a complete roof renewal, internal reconfiguration. It will deliver a major improvement for the players, umpires and guests experiences at the venue. It’s been designed to support the multiple playing fields adjacent to the clubhouse. The works are due to be completed by the end of June and market access will be maintained throughout the duration of the build. These works are a joint initiative of Council and the State Government.
