Road closures for Ipswich CBD as crane brought in

A ROAD will be closed in the Ipswich CBD tomorrow and a crane brought in to install a new piece of art.

Ipswich City Council is behind the new granite sculpture, although it has been paid for through developer contributions, Mayor Paul Pisasale said.  

For now the council is keeping the sculpture a mystery ahead of the formal unveiling on Friday at 9.30am. 

A tight lipped Cr Pisasale said it would be a taste of more public art to follow around the CBD.

The commotion on Wednesday will shut down one lane of Bell St.

According to Queensland Police, the road closure will be in place between 9am and 4pm.

As part of the works, the footpath along Bell St and one lane will be closed near the intersection of Brisbane St.
