Wallum Reserve rest area
set to welcome travellers again
Have your say
BUNDABERG's mayor has delivered some good
news for grey nomads and other travellers.
Cr Jack Dempsey (pictured), who is campaigning
to be re-elected in Queensland's Rum City, has revealed that work is
pressing ahead on re-opening the Wallum Reserve rest area on the Isis
He said many locals drove past the facility, 25km from Bundaberg, without
knowing just how significant the rest stop was
for visitors, especially caravanners and drivers of motorhomes.
Unfortunately, vegetation was damaged in a recent bushfire and thieves
made off with a rainwater tank.
Council workers are now completing repairs for the Department of Transport
and Main Roads.
A new rainwater tank is being installed, bollards, posts and rails are
being replaced and roads will be resealed.
"It's a positive example of cooperation between agencies to make sure
community amenities are up to scratch," Cr Dempsey said.
"Spread the word to travellers!"
It is hoped the rest area
will again be available to travellers towards the end of this month.
