Allocated in the 2022-23 budget was a $2.4 million investment over two years to fund the city-wide beautification program. Of that money, the divisions each receive $200,000.
Last week the median strip on Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road between Bryants Road and California Creek Road was finished, bringing an end to state two of the project.
This project has been a collaboration between Council and the Queensland Government recognising that Beenleigh Redland Bay Road is a state-regulated thoroughfare and an important part of the Division 10 landscape.
“This a Council project, funded primarily through the Division 10 Local Infrastructure program, with additional funding from the Logan City Council City Beautification fund and a contribution from the Department of Transport and Main Roads in response to a letter Darren Power – Mayor of Logan City sent to the Minister for Transport and Main Roads,” said Cr Miriam Stemp.
“This stretch of road has looked a mess for such a long time and has often been susceptible to fires from cigarette butts being thrown from vehicles.
“It is wonderful to see it looking so green and beautiful and I look forward to a pop of colour once the plants begin to grow.”
Stage three includes the area between Bryants Road and the M1, which already has some landscaping, but will include some plant filling, recoating of the concrete and an overall clean-up.
