The Perfect Place News

Welcome to the October 2016 issue of the WBBROC newsletter.  We hope you find it informative and interesting.  

Your positive feedback has been appreciated, and we are always happy to improve the way we communicate with you.  

Don't forget that the WBBROC website also has up-to-date information about our organisation and the various sub-committees, projects and WBBROC events.

New regional priorities set

WBBROC has revised its priorities for the region for the upcoming 4 years.  The priorities are now:
  1. Port of Bundaberg
  2. Bruce Highway Upgrades 
  3. Unallocated State Land Opportunities
  4. Telecommunications (blackspots)
  5. Wide Bay Burnett Minerals Province
  6. Freight Logistics
  7. First and Last Mile Project (getting freight to and from the farm)
  8. Water for Economic Development
  9. Regional Export Extension Service
 Mayors and Deputy Mayors will be meeting with State Government Ministers at Parliament House, Brisbane, on 10 November to seek their ongoing support for these priorities.

Regional logo updated

The perfect place logo for the region has had a small facelift.  This has essentially been done to simplify the catch-line for the logo.  WBBROC will gradually replace the old logo with the new over time:

Heavy vehicle demonstration day

WBBROC, Bundaberg Council and the NHVR recently held a Heavy Vehicle Demonstration Day in Bundaberg to demonstrate the capabilities and safety features of modern heavy vehicles.  The old double B trucks and semi-trailers have in many cases been replaced by far superior vehicles.

These new vehicles often carry more freight, while at the same time spreading that weight better to reduce wear and tear on our roads.  They are also safer and more manoeuvrable.  This last point was well demonstrated on the day, when all the various trucks easily travelled around roundabouts.
The media also took great interest in the vehicle demonstrations.
