Smoother ride for Jimboomba clubs
Humans and horses are in for a smoother ride at the Jimboomba Equestrian Centre with the installation of a new driveway.
Recycled road base, from nearby street improvement works, has been used to boost vehicle access to the club on Green Ridge Road.
The project was funded through the Division 9 Local Infrastructure Program.
Councillor Scott Bannan says the new driveway would allow vehicles greater access to the centre’s facilities, even in wet weather.
‘A driveway is a pretty simple thing, but it makes a huge difference for clubs like this,’ Cr Bannan says.
‘The Jimboomba Equestrian Centre has a top-notch outdoor arena, but when it rains, you can’t even use the grounds.
‘Now, club members can get where they need to be and the fact that we’ve used recycled material makes it even better.’
Cr Bannan says recycled materials were picked up from roadworks in South Street, and brought over to nearby Green Ridge Road.
‘It’s a 2-minute turnaround in the tipper and because there’s no travel on a truck, the whole job is quicker.’
The project is the first of several planned for clubs in Jimboomba.
New driveways will soon be installed at Jimboomba Park and at Glenlogan Park, where new drainage infrastructure will also be constructed.
A new driveway is also being designed for the Jimboomba Cadets.
