Two major and highly anticipated projects are now complete and plantings along Majorca Road are well underway.
Thirty-five Autumn Blaze Red Maples are currently being planted along Majorca Road. When complete, the trees will link up with more plantings near the Gillies Street and Majorca Road intersection.
Irrigation works are also being undertaken and median strips will be re-turfed in spring.
The new trees are complementary to the recently finished redevelopment works along Majorca Road.
The works included underground drainage, new kerb and pavement renewal which were made possible through $731,366 in funding from the Shire and the Federal Government, as part of the Roads to Recovery Program.
Another project to be completed is the Taylor Street footpath. Funded by the Shire, the $104,212 project links east Maryborough to the town’s CBD.
The new footpath involved granular base pavement construction, kerb and channel replacement and reinstatement works.
Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said it is pleasing to see so many projects being completed and others just beginning.
“In years to come, locals and visitors alike will be greeted with a picturesque entry to Maryborough along Majorca Road thanks to the 35 new Autumn Blaze Red Maples that are being planted,” he said.
