Main Roads searching for Bowen, Ayr roadside memorial owner
The Department of Transport and Main Roads is searching for the owner of a roadside memorial between Bowen and Ayr.
“The memorial’s in the construction footprint of new Bruce Highway overtaking lanes and we need to remove it *temporarily* so it doesn’t get damaged,” it stated in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
“We want to speak to the owner to let them know that we’ll take good care of the memorial and return it to its location when the works are complete.
“We haven’t had any success so far but our friends on social media have been really helpful in the past.
“If you know who may have placed the memorial, please contact our Mackay office on 4951 8555 or email Mackaycommunications@tmr.qld.gov.au with the subject line ‘Bruce Highway (Bowen – Ayr) Memorials’.”
