Notification of Works – Fairways Park Stage 1 – Lot 902, Fairway Drive, Kensington Grove​

Lockyer Valley Regional Council recently received funding support from the Australian and Queensland Governments to construct a new recreational park at Lot 902, Fairway Drive, Kensington Grove.  Fairways Park will be inclusive of all abilities, support family and community gatherings, offer exciting experiences for children and, in time, encourage growth of local sports.

The construction of Fairways Park Stage 1 is programmed to start at the end of October 2020, with works to be completed by July 2021, weather permitting.

Stage 1 of the project involves the construction of innovative playground facilities with multiple elements, a learn to ride course with imitation road signage, picnic facilities including shelters and barbeques, public amenities, formal and informal paths/footpaths, dog park and more.

Due to the size of this project, it is expected there will be an increase in dust and noise during the construction period.  All measures will be taken to reduce this as much as possible. Appropriate environmental management will also be in place to protect and preserve wildlife.

Construction signage will be present to ensure the safety of workers and the public.  Due to the increase of traffic during the construction period, a reduction of speed limits will be considered as part of the Traffic Management Plan.  Please adhere to roadwork signage, detours and any instructions issued.

Council apologises for any inconvenience this work may cause and would like to thank you for your patience during construction.
