Mackay and Whitsunday Life


Works on the Paradise and Webberley streets intersection in West Mackay have progressed to stage two.
Mackay Regional Council have completed the northern drainage and subgrade replacement for the entire project and will commence work on the southern stormwater drainage works, subbase pavement layer and pavement widening, and reconstruction of Webberley Street this week.
Traffic management will be in place and the intersection at Simpson and Webberley streets will be closed with local traffic access only.
The current road closures on Webberley Street, Simpson to Paget streets and George Milton Street will continue with local traffic access only.
Parking bays along Paradise Street, between Graffunder and Amiet streets, will be closed to allow for safe two-way traffic.
The northbound and southbound bus stops on Paradise Street have also been temporarily relocated to near Chauvel Street.
Council is upgrading the intersection at Paradise and Webberley streets to improve safety in the area.
The project includes additional lanes to facilitate two-lane through traffic, right turn signals from Paradise Street into Webberley Street, right turn signals from Webberley Street into Paradise Street, pedestrian signals through the intersection, a designated bike lane and pathway connectivity to existing pathways in Paradise Street, Webberley Street and the bus stop.
The project is due to be completed by December 2024.
