COUNCIL NEWS FRIDAY 19 OCTOBER
LAYTON ROAD RENAMING FINALISED
The process to rename Argyle Road to Layton Road in Maryborough has now been finalised, with new street signage now in place.
The renamed section of road is located from Gillies Street, past the Maryborough Cemetery, to the Talisman Track intersection.
The road renaming was necessary due to works that changed the flow of traffic. Under the Geographic Place Names Act 1998 the road had to be renamed in the interests of public safety and in situations that could result in significant delays to essential services.
The name - Layton Road – was determined following a communityconsultation process.
The next Ordinary Meeting of Council will be held on Tuesday 23 October, 2018 at 6pm in the Community Hub, 48 Burns Street, Maryborough.
The public is welcome to attend and the Agenda is available at www.centralgoldfields.com.au, or from Council’s Customer Service Centre.
Council’s works team commenced kerb renewal works along Park Road earlier this week with the project expected to
take approximately three weeks to complete. The speed limit has been reduced to 40 km/h along this section of road
so motorists are urged to adhere to the changed traffic conditions.
Council is recruiting for the following positions:
• Coordinator Maternal Child Health
• Maternal Child Health Nurse
Council is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to conversations for all positions about flexibility that
works for you.
