Rehabilitation works have started along the Bundaberg Ring and Ashfield road's that will see the popular routes significantly upgraded.
Main Roads and Road Safety Minister Mark Bailey spoke of the plans and what they entail.
“Works involve strengthening the road to provide a safer driving surface for motorists,” Mr Bailey said.
“This section of road has deteriorated during the past few years and these works will assist in minimising future maintenance costs.”
The works will be undertaken by RoadTek, and should be completed by March 2017.
Member for Bundaberg Leanne Donaldson spoke of the disruptions motorists might face whilst the works progress.
“To undertake the works safely and efficiently, traffic controllers, single-lane closures and speed restrictions will be in place as required,” Ms Donaldson said.
“Every effort will be made to minimise traffic disruptions, especially during peak periods, but motorists should factor in additional travel time for their journey.
“Motorists are advised to drive to the changed conditions, and obey all safety signage and traffic controllers’ directions.”
