“The Aremby Road work is a great example of this, with 750m of bitumen seal meaning residents can have a smoother drive.

“Just last week we added even more roads to our rural road maintenance program, passing a Council motion that we would now maintain longer sections of Flaherty Road in Stanwell, Hughes Road in Alton Downs, and Smalls Road in Mount Morgan.”

Divisional Councillor Ellen Smith welcomed the improvements to Aremby Road.

“This is in addition to other recent improvements in the area, especially on Nugett Ave and Oleander Ave.

“Improvements to these roads were first raised at Community Conversation meetings in Bouldercombe, so I am really pleased that we were able to listen to local residents and get this work done.”

RRC asked if there is a rural road in your area that you’d like Council to work on, let them know via facebook, email, or give us a call on 1300 22 55 77.
