Faster Road Repair for Rockhampton

By David Bell

Rockhampton residents can welcome a new truck to town that will fix the region's roads more quickly.

Those who rent or own real estate in Rockhampton will be pleased by the development which could  improve their commute time.

The machine, a Paveline Cogen Series Asphalt Maintenance Unit, is used to fix asphalt and water mains on sealed and unsealed roads and will make the job more efficient.

Asphalt needs to be warm to set and unlike the other trucks in Rockhampton, the Paveline can keep it heated overnight, which will save a trip to the asphalt plant during the morning's busy period.

Often there is a queue of trucks waiting for asphalt so this will speed up the process across the board – there will be one less truck to wait for.

Chair of the council's infrastructure committee, Glenda Mather said that the improved efficiency will a make a huge difference to motorists in the region.

"With thousands of kilometres of sealed and unsealed roads spread far and wide across our Region our crews are always kept very busy," she said.

Those with real estate in Norman Gardens or anywhere in Rockhampton will appreciate an improvement in road quality.
