Community Feedback: Bruce Highway Through Yabulu at Night

Do you use the Bruce Highway through Yabulu (north of Townsville) at night? The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is seeking feedback from people who regularly travel the Bruce Highway through Yabulu at night, about upcoming temporary highway closures.

Closure particulars:

The railway overpass on the Bruce Highway at Yabulu was damaged in a bridge strike. Following an attempt to remove the damaged span only, Queensland Rail has determined the overpass will need to be demolished.
To ensure the safety of passing motorists, the Bruce Highway at this location will need to be closed and is likely to occur over three consecutive nights (8pm to 4am). The demolition is anticipated to take place around late August/early September. The dates will be determined based on a number of factors including community feedback and traffic counts, and will avoid major events (such as NQ Cowboys game nights) and school holidays.

The feedback will be used to inform when these closures occur so as to have the least impact on motorists.

Questions to consider:

  1. Do you travel the Bruce Highway through Yabulu between the hours of 8pm and 4am?
  2. If yes, how often per week and what nights of the week?
  3. If provided with two weeks prior notice of the closures, will you be able to make alternative arrangements?

Feedback should be directed to TMR’s Customer and Stakeholder Management team by telephone on 1800 625 648, or emailno later than close of business Friday 3 August 2018.
