COUNCIL AT WORK —FINISHING YOUNG ROAD WORKS Council Roads Maintenance crews are completing major recycling and reshaping work on approximately two kilometres of the Young Road from Fishburn Street to the truck stop area of the highway. Working as contractors for Roads and Maritime Services, the work has included repairing, resurfacing, and lime-stabilising a

two-kilometre section of the paved area of the Olympic Highway with the work costing approximately $750,000. The final paving phase of the work is likely to be completed on-time due to few delays to the project. Council also offers acknowledgement and thanks for the cooperation of local motorists and businesses operating under traffic control throughout the works.
