Bruce Highway Asphalt Works – Kirknie and Milburn Road Intersection

The Department of Transport and Main Roads advises that asphalt works will take place on the southern approaches to the Burdekin River Bridge in Home Hill. Works will be undertaken between the Burdekin River Bridge to the sugar cane rail crossing about 250m south of the Kirknie Road and Milburn Road intersection.

Night works will take place (weather permitting) on:

Monday 10th November 2014 from 7.00pm to 5.00am

Throughout the works, the Bruce Highway will remain open but will be subject to changed traffic conditions, including lane closures, width restrictions and reduced speed limits to enable works to be undertaken safely and efficiently. Access to Kirknie Road and Milburn Road will be maintained but there may be times when restrictions will be in place.

Traffic controllers and advanced warning signs will be on site to notify road users of these changes.

What to expect during these works:

  • Traffic Delays
  • Lane Closures and detours
  • Minimal access restrictions
  • Traffic controllers on site to direct road users
  • Speed restrictions and road safety signage

Every effort will be made to minimise noise however, residents and businesses can expect to hear reversing vehicle warning signals. Workplace Health and Safety regulations stipulate that these beepers cannot be turned off, even in residential areas.

TMR regrets any inconvenience caused by these works, and appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time.

Important information for heavy vehicle operators:

Width restrictions will be in place during this period. All excess dimension vehicles/ loads wider than 3m must contact Jenelle Schneekloth on 0407 166 550 prior to passing through the work site, with notice to be provided a minimum of 12 hours in advance.
