Pavement widening works have begun on the Bruce Highway between Curra Creek and Curra Creek Overflow.
Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, Warren Truss, said the project is part of a range of safety works taking place along the highway.
“These safety works are aimed at upgrading high-risk locations along the Bruce Highway, and I'm very pleased to see these works getting underway,” Truss said.
“The $800,000 project will see several improvements, including shoulder widening works and upgrading of guardrail and embankments.”
RoadTek has been awarded the construction contract, which is expected to be completed by mid-2016, weather permitting.
Queensland Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports, Mark Bailey, said the improvements will benefit motorists travelling the highway regularly.
“The pavement widening works will deliver major safety improvements for all road users on this section on the Bruce Highway,” Bailey said.
“To carry out these works safely and efficiently, traffic controllers, single-lane closures and speed restrictions will need to be put in place as needed.”
Works on the project will be carried out between Monday to Saturday.
