The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) advises that construction crews will be undertaking pavement rehabilitation work on Ayr-Dalbeg Road (between Old Clare Road and Brown Road). RoadTek is completing this project which will improve safety and operational efficiency of Ayr-Dalbeg Road, as well as support future growth in the Burdekin.
The works will commence Monday 16 October 2017 and are expected to be completed in early 2018, weather and construction conditions permitting.
The works will take place Monday to Saturday between 6.00am and 6.00pm.
Ayr-Dalbeg Road will remain open during these works but will be subject to changed traffic conditions, including lane closures and reduced speed limits to enable works to be undertaken safely and efficiently. To minimise disruptions to road users, works have been planned in stages with advanced warning signs to notify road users of these changes.
What to expect:
– Temporary lane closures.
– Speed restrictions.
– Visual message boards will operate in the area to keep you informed.
– Increased noise levels and vibration from machinery, equipment and site vehicles.
– Dust associated with construction activities.
Temporary road closure – Lena Road
Access to Lena Road from Ayr-Dalbeg Road will be temporarily affected while works are completed at this intersection. Road users may need to be diverted to an alternative route via Sheepstation Creek Road. Directional signage will be in place to direct road users of these changes.
There will be times when access to businesses and residential properties directly adjacent to the works will be temporarily restricted while the works are in progress. This will be monitored by roaming traffic controllers to ensure minimal delays are experienced. If required access to properties may be diverted temporarily as part of the works.
Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum for road users during these activities. The project team apologises for any inconvenience and appreciates the community’s patience during these important works.
