IT SEEMS wherever you drive around Ipswich lately, there are roads being dug up and re-laid, often causing traffic delays.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has provided the latest update on flood reconstruction activities in Ipswich.

 

COMPLETED SITES

Six sections along Ipswich-Boonah Rd, three along Rosewood-Marburg Rd, four along Ipswich-Rosewood Rd, six along Rosewood-Warrill View Rd, six along Rosewood-Laidley Rd, eight along Karrabin-Rosewood Rd, one along Haigslea-Amberley Rd.

 

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

  • Haigslea-Amberley Rd: two sections between Karrabin-Rosewood Rd and Farrell Lne, Walloon. Asphalt works started yesterday, 6pm-6am, and will be completed by tomorrow. Expected delays: five minutes per site.
  • Ipswich-Boonah Road: three sections between Ipswich and Boonah - between Hughes Rd and Fords Lne, Mount Flinders Rd to Castle Hill Lne. Asphalt works will start tomorrow and will be completed Monday. Expected delays of about five minutes.

TMR warns motorists may encounter stop-and-go traffic arrangements, single lane closures and reduced speed limits and while every effort will be made to minimise the impacts, motorists may experience delays of five minutes at each site and should factor additional travel time to their journey.

The department says works will generally occur Monday to Saturday, between 6am and 6pm, with occasional out-of-hours work as required. If you have any issues with the traffic signals, call the 24 hour hotline - 0467 758 776.
