Trees to be cut down for new footpath

TWENTY melaleuca trees will be removed from a section of grassed footpath on one side of Pacific Ave at Tannum Sands to make way for a concrete footpath.

Contractors are scheduled to remove the trees from November 24-28, and stump grind below ground level to prevent regrowth.

Gladstone regional councillor Rick Hansen said disruption for residents and motorists was expected to be minimal, with work to be carried out from 8am-4pm.

"The footpath will provide a safer pedestrian link and provide an improved connection to the beach and shops," Cr Hansen said.
