HIGHWAY HELL: Drivers to expect delays with $2.3m project
MOTORISTS can expect big delays on the Bruce Highway this month with resurfacing works set to begin as part of a $2.3million project.
But it means drivers will be safer on the notorious stretch of road between the Mons Rd off-ramp, exit 200 and the Nambour Connection Rd off-ramp.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said work would begin on the northbound lane.
"The works will provide a better road surface and safer driving conditions for motorists on this heavily trafficked section of the Bruce Highway," Mr Bailey said.
"This $2.3 million project will involve removing the existing surface, completing asphalt resurfacing and line-marking."
Mr Bailey said the project would take about four weeks to complete, weather permitting.
"A lot of work has gone into making sure we work as efficiently as possible, with the least amount of disruption to traffic," he said.
"The entire project will be completed at night between 7pm and 5am to minimise disruptions to nearby businesses and motorists.
"Motorists may experience some minor delays during the works.
"However, traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and signage will be in place to direct motorists.
"We thank everyone for their patience and remind motorists to be alert to changed traffic conditions to ensure safety through the worksite."
