Maryborough’s biggest housing development, Whirrakee Rise, is coming along in leaps and bounds with stage nine of the development soon to be complete.
Construction of sewerage lines, roads and other to be completed in the coming weeks and developer Mark Dellavedova said everything is running on track.
“We’re hoping to have construction finished in the next four to five weeks,” he said.
“At this stage we’ve got under-ground power, water, gas and sewerage in.
“The footpaths will be finished by next week and then there’s the nature strips, street trees, some more drainage and a bit of tidying up to do.”
Stage nine of the large development has been in the works for four years and Mr Dellavedova said construction has mostly gone according to plan.
“The planning and design was a long process but construction-wise we started in September last year so it’s taken eight or nine months,” he said.
“There’s always dramas with a development like this but it’s been generally pretty good. It’s not good for the region that there’s been no rain but it is an upside for building roads.”
