Works to improve Laurel Street at Redbank Plains have begun as part of Ipswich City Council’s ongoing road maintenance and upgrade program.
The works include road pavement rehabilitation and relocation of some of the stormwater drainage pipes.
Division 1 Councillor Sheila Ireland said the works will improve the look and feel of Laurel Street.
“Council is working hard to upgrade roads like Laurel Street which are in need of attention,” Cr Ireland said.
“The upgrades will not only provide a smoother ride for residents, but also ensure our suburban streets are looking the best they can.”
Division 1 Councillor Jacob Madsen welcomed the works.
“These works will benefit the community at large by providing safer roads for our community,” Cr Madsen said.
“We thank residents and local motorists for their patience while these important works are carried out.”
The upgrades are set for delivery by August.
A road closure, detour, and reduced traffic speeds are in place for general motorists, while Laurel Street residents will be provided with 48 hours’ notice if their driveway is to be impacted during the works program.
