Council to Remove Dangerous Trees
Posted: May 9, 2012
The Southern Downs Regional Council plans to undertake the removal of the dangerous London Plane trees in Guy Street, Warwick over the next few days.
The trees are being removed after an independent arborist found them to be diseased with rotten cores and as such present a danger to the public.
"It is unfortunate that these trees have to be removed, but public safety has to come first" said Michael Bell, Manager Parks and Projects.
“A recent health check found that seven trees between Grafton and Fitzroy Streets were in such ill health that they were in danger of falling, or dropping large limbs" he said.
"They are beyond any treatment and need to be removed."
Council advises residents that work is planned to take place as follows:
• On Friday 11 May between 6.30am and 8am. Access will be via traffic control only.
• On Saturday 12 May between 1 pm and 5 pm. Guy St will be closed from the Fitzroy St roundabout to the entrance to the Rose City Shopping Centre. Access to the Centre from the Grafton St end of Guy St will be available through the Guy St entrance.
Traffic control measures will be in place during the above works and residents are asked to obey all temporary traffic signage and not to park cars on affected streets during the works periods. All works are subject to weather conditions and change without notice.
Council apologises for any disturbance or disruption these works may cause.
For more information or if you have any concerns regarding these works please contact Michael Bell, Parks and Projects Manager on telephone no. 0487 301 898.
