Tarcoola Boardwalk repair finished, open to public

REPAIR work on the Tarcoola Boardwalk on Tarcoola Drive at Boyne Island is complete and the facility is now open to the public.

The boardwalk which has been closed since repair work started on February 22, overlooks a stretch of the Boyne River and is part of the longer Turtleway bike path, a popular Council recreation facility for bike riders, walkers and families.

Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said the community's patience during the closure time was much appreciated.

"Council understands closures such as this can be inconvenient for regular users of the bike path, but these closures are necessary for Council to improve community facilities," Councillor Burnett said.

"I hope the community enjoys the new and improved infrastructure."
