Upgrading of a major culvert on the Kingsthorpe-Haden Road (between McDonalds Road and Kann Street, Haden) is expected to be completed by October 2022, weather permitting.
Toowoomba Regional Council Infrastructure Committee Chair Cr Carol Taylor said the project was originally due for completion in April however due to an historical find – an early stone and timber culvert structure – and ongoing wet weather, completion has been delayed.
“A project milestone has recently been reached, with traffic switched over from the eastern side to the western side of the road, allowing works to progress on the eastern side,” Cr Taylor said.
“The culvert replacement project was jointly funded by the Australian Government’s Bridges Renewal Program Round Five and Council. The project will help to improve drainage and road safety.
“Thank you to the community for your patience while Council completes this important culvert upgrade.”
