The future of Rockhampton’s infrastructure has begun, with the council commencing $1 million worth of work to improve traffic flow through the Dean Street and High Street intersection. Chair of Infrastructure Councillor Tony Williams said the project would be good to prepare the area for future plans.
“The Dean Street profile resulting from this project will achieve one more section of the overall concept that has been developed for the full length of Dean Street,” said Mr Williams in a February 19 statement.
“This project will replace the existing roundabout with traffic signals, provide concrete indented parking spaces and footpaths, and upgrade some existing stormwater drainage and road pavement.”
While this may be an inconvenience for motorists at the moment, residents of real estate in Rockhampton could be in for great developments in the area. With continued development, the overall value oft he community will continue to grow and flourish.
This could be good news for those interested in selling their Rockhampton properties in the future. As property values in Queensland continue to grow across the board, the opportunities for rental property in Rockhampton could entice smart investors looking to expand their property portfolios into the Sunshine State.
