COMPLETED: Maranoa sport grounds upgrade complete

Maranoa Regional Council has completed the upgrades at the Roma Touch Grounds, with the construction of the newly bitumen sealed internal access road and carpark.

Mayor Tyson Golder said these upgrades will improve the safety for users with formalised access road, pedestrian pathways and designated parking for both bicycles and cars within the grounds.

It will also reduce dust for members and nearby residents.

“Thank you to Council’s construction team who have delivered this project within the budget and time allocated, whilst taking advantage of the current restricted use of the public grounds as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions,” Cr Golder said.

Roma Touch Association president Shane Ferry said over the past few years the Roma Touch Grounds have undergone a number of upgrades and we would like to thank Maranoa Regional Council for undertaking these important works.

“These most recent upgrades will make it safer for participants that use the Touch Grounds,” Mr Ferry said.

The Internal Road Improvement Roma Touch Fields Project has been funded by the Queensland Government’s $600 million Works for Queensland program.
