Resealing a number of Queensland roads will benefit the freight industry by delivering a safer and smoother journey, according to Main Roads Minister Warren Pitt.

The $6.5 million project, due to start today, is part of ongoing maintenance in south western Queensland.

Pitt says the resealing is essential to prevent "the need for costly maintenance repairs" later on.
"Resealing work is a long-term solution in protecting roads against the wear and tear caused by weather and traffic," he says.

"The work also preserves the underlying structure of the road, making it more resistant to water during the wet season and to cracking in the heat."

Roads scheduled to be resealed include:

• 15km on the Roma-Taroom Road
• 25km on the Carnarvon Highway (Roma-Surat)
• 17km on the Warrego Highway (Roma-Mitchell)
• 26km on the Warrego Highway (Roma-Jackson)
• 5km on the Warrego Highway (Jackson-Miles)
• 16km on various sections of the Leichhardt Highway (Miles-Taroom)
• 6km on the Leichhardt Highway (north of Taroom)
• 1.2km on the Warrego Highway (east of Miles)
• 4km on the Condamine Road (east of Condamine)
• 3km on the Roma Southern Road
• 5km on the Carnarvon Highway (south of Surat)
• 10km on the Surat Developmental Road
• 3km on the Condamine-Meandarra Road.
