The Myall Street southbound ramp on the Bruce Highway has been closed to traffic as part of the $490 million Bruce Highway Cooroy to Curra project.
Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, Warren Truss, said a significant number of traffic switches are set to take place at the interchange.
“Motorists using the Bruce Highway between the Cooroy southern interchange and the Mary River Road overpass at Cooroy are being diverted onto a new 3.1 kilometre section of road,” Truss said.
“Diverting traffic onto the new northbound carriageway, temporarily one lane in each direction, will allow construction of the new southbound lanes to progress.
Traffic switch links between Mary River Road and Cudgerie Drive have already been upgraded with a new highway alignment.
As part of this traffic switch, the southbound off-ramp at Cooroy southern interchange will close temporarily until mid-2016.
Queensland Minister for Main Roads and Road Safety, Mark Bailey, said the project will deliver a new 13.5 kilometre, four-lane divided highway.
“There are a number of major traffic changes being implemented on and around the Bruce Highway in the coming months as project works ramp up, and I urge motorists to be patient, drive safely and observe traffic controls,” Bailey said.
“The Queensland government is delivering the road upgrades that Queensland needs for the future and these works will provide greater road safety, freight efficiency and improved travel times on the Bruce Highway.”
The project is expected to be completed late 2016.
