Traffic delays for Gap motorists

CRUISING through Cunningham's Gap will come to a stop - or a stop/go to be precise - when work to damaged road starts again on Monday.

Main Roads Minister Craig Wallace said final asphalt repairs and resurfacing would be carried out as day works under short-term stop/go traffic control and were expected to be finished in February.

"Motorists should be advised during the works, stop/go conditions will be in place at Fig Tree West to Fig Tree Gully and Six Penny Gully," Mr Wallace said.

He said work was due to start on a new section of the highway at Clayton's Gully in February, where a new 600m long four-lane section cutting 50m into the slopes at Cunningham's Gap would be built.

"This is a new section of road, so there will be minimal disruption to traffic while construction is under way," Mr Wallace said.

Motorists received a reprieve of sometimes lengthy delays at the Gap after two lanes of traffic all the way through were opened over Christmas and new year.

A limited work crew remained on site monitoring the road to make sure everything was safe for all travellers.
