Resurfacing works begin next week

LATE night travellers should be prepared for road work delays during the coming month.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will be undertaking resurfacing works on sections of the Stanthorpe connection road - High and Maryland Sts - and will start next week, weather permitting.

A TMR spokesman sais works would be carried out on the section between the Connor St intersection and the Bridge St/Leslie Pde intersection, including Quart Pot Creek bridge.

"The project will involve road surface repairs and resurfacing works to give drivers a safer, smoother ride through town," he said.

"Works will generally be carried out during non-peak periods between 7pm and 6am, Sunday to Thursday to reduce traffic delays and maximise safety for the travelling public and road workers.

"Changed traffic conditions may include reduced speed limits and traffic control with traffic flow restricted to one lane - some delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected."

The project will be carried out by Fulton Hogan and is expected to be completed early December 2012, weather permitting.

Motorists are asked to drive to the changed traffic conditions and obey all signage and instructions from traffic controllers.
