TMR Safety Works – Bunya Highway near Webbs Road Intersection
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has advised that they will soon start safety works on the Bunya Highway near the Webbs Road intersection, north of Memerambi.
This project involves:
- curve widening works to enable heavy vehicles to more easily pass each other on the corner when travelling in opposite directions
- placing bitumen on Webbs Road at the throat of the intersection which will limit gravel material being carried onto the highway, reducing the potential risk of loss of traction for motorists
- installing vehicle activated signage to warn motorists of the need to slow down in advance of the curve
RoadTek is due to start works in March 2019 (weather permitting) with the project expected to be completed by mid-2019, weather permitting. Works will generally be carried out between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. To undertake the works safely and efficiently, traffic controllers, single-lane closures and speed restrictions will be in place as required. Motorists should expect some delays if travelling during work hours and are reminded to observe all warning signage when approaching the site and be aware of changed conditions.
We thank motorists and the local community in advance for their patience and cooperation while these safety improvement works are being carried out.
