Incomplete roadworks damage cars on rough Agnes stretch

THE road into Agnes Water has become a road to ruin with potholes and unsealed sections deteriorating as delayed roadworks continue.

In a stretch of Round Hill Rd from Fingerboard Rd south of Miriam Vale to Agnes Water, numerous unsealed sections have been dug up and left to develop into poor driving surfaces.

Agnes Water Tyre and Mechanical's Danny Godbee said motorists, both local and tourists, came in all the time with damaged vehicles.

"It's shocking, the state of the road,'' Mr Godbee said.

"I get somebody in here every day with buckled rims, blown tyres, suspension, the works.

"There's potholes everywhere, and where the dirt hits the bitumen it's bad.''

The Gladstone Regional Council's Stage 1 of the restoration works funded by federal money includes Blackmans Gap Rd, Captain Cook Dr, Lowmead Dr, Round Hill Rd and Turkey Beach Rd, and was supposed to be completed by the contractor between January and June this year.
