Bruce Hwy lane closures from Monday

MOTORISTS are being urged to pay attention to changed traffic conditions while travelling on the Bruce Hwy near Gin Gin from Monday.

Some lane closures and detours will be in place for about a month as works continue on the $20 million project to upgrade the southern entrance to the town.

Transport and Main Roads Wide Bay/Burnett regional director Doug Wass said clearly signed changes would be made to a short section of the highway known locally as Mulgrave St.

"Some lane closures will be in place near Walker St, which will mean a small number of roadside car parks are temporarily removed," Mr Wass said.

"One lane will be closed along the section of Walker St that runs between the two highway carriageways.

"The second lane will remain open for motorists travelling toward the northbound highway lane only."

Mr Wass said a local detour via Milden St would be in place for motorists exiting the Bruce Hwy to travel along Bundaberg-Gin Gin Rd.

Disruption would be kept to a minimum, he said.

"We have worked closely with council and nearby businesses to ensure impacts are minimised for the local community and motorists as much as possible," he said.

He said he was impressed with the safe behaviour of motorists while works progressed.

"We are pleased that drivers have been observing the changed conditions and safety signage at the site," Mr Wass said.

"I look forward to delivering this important safety upgrade for the Gin Gin community and the 5300 motorists who use this stretch of road daily."
