Better ramp access

RESIDENTS will have improved access to Calliope River Boat Ramp once Gladstone Regional Council completes work on Port Curtis Way.

The work is set to start next week.

Access to Gladstone Regional Council's Gladstone Sewerage Treatment Plant will also be enhanced as part of the Queensland Government's Safer Roads Sooner project, due to be finalised in July 2012.

Gladstone Regional Council's director of infrastructure services Paul Keech said council was being contracted by the Department of Transport and Main Roads for the $2.3 million project.

"When complete, the flow of traffic in the vicinity of Calliope River Bridge, near NRG Gladstone, will be managed better, thus enhancing safety for all road users," Mr Keech said.

The work involves building four new roads and widening the NRG Gladstone Operating Services ring road and providing access points to the boat ramp at Calliope River and the sewerage treatment plant.
