ISLAND ROADS

GREEN SEAL ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM READY TO GO Redland City Council’s green seal road program is about to start. Mayor Karen Williams has said council has proudly allocated $1.9 million dollars this financial year to green sealing on the SMBIs, bringing the total investment to $19 million since the program started in 2016. She added: “This initiative not only improves roads but reflects Council’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life on the Islands.’ The program was halted last year due to council’s $14 million major contribution to the islands’ new jetties construction, in association with the Queensland State Government, to a total of $47 million (approx). In the lead up to the green seal re-start, council has been moving required materials to the islands in preparation for the coming work start. Works will start on The Boulevard and Crescent Drive, both on Russell Island, before Christmas, weather permitting. Works will then move to Macleay Island. The streets to be sealed will be confirmed closer to the start date. Cr Mark Edwards previously advised that, along with Ray Street, the streets to sealed this financial year are: MACLEAY ISLAND: Ilya Street from Kate Street to 28 Beelong Street, Kardinia Street to Ilya Street, Aruma Street, Garnet Street (Coast Road to number 20), Daku Court, Bahah Street, Allambie Street, Coran Street, Peter Court, Jordan Street, Frenchem Terrace, Lonicera Street, Thomas Street, Donald Street, Barry Street, Con Street, Columbia Street, Percival Street, Cowes Street, Heath Street. RUSSELL ISLAND: The Boulevard, Crescent Drive, Catamaran Street, Trimaran Street, Aranda Street, Baguette Street, Tails Street, Gunsynd Street, Todman Street, Tulloch Street, Alstonia Street, Aralia Street, Ellis Street, Richardson Street and Kift Street. Sometimes streets around those being sealed that have not been mentioned may be sealed if it is cost effective to do at the same time whilst the crews are there and they have extra materials.
