Queensland rail will be undertaking track maintenance between Gaythorne and Mitchelton Stations from Monday 28 september til Thursday 1st October.
This will involve the use of loud machinery including loaderswith bright flashing lights and reversing beepers.
Queensland Rail will make every effort to carry out these works with minimal disruption to its neighbours.
I recently inspected the progress on the construction of the Old Northern Road Noise Barrier project which is expected to be complete before Christmas.
After working with my residents, I know that they are looking forward to seeing this project delivered.
Information on the upgrade is also available at www.tmr.qld.gov.au, click on ‘projects’ then ‘Old Northern Road noise barrier project.
Recently I joined Hutchinson's for their annual Apprentice and Cadet of the Year Awards.
The contract for construction of the Old Northern Road Noise Barrier project has been awarded to Queensland Bridge and Civil, and work will soon be underway.
This project will involve replacing identified barriers located between Jinker Track and the Bunyaville State Forest Park border on the western side of Old Northern Road and between The Boulevard to near DeVito Place on the eastern side with concrete panels. The existing timber barriers approximately 300 metres north of Hamilton Road intersection will be repaired. The height of the barriers for the majority of the project is two metres.
Works are scheduled to commence in late July 2015, and is scheduled for completion by early 2016. Reduced speed limits, lane closure, signage and traffic control will be in place during works to safeguard motorist and roadworkers.
Transport and Main Roads (TMR) are currently carrying out resurfacing works at the Stafford Road and Sout Pine Road intersection. It has been found that the inbound detector loops (that detect traffic and are installed beneath the road surface) have failed and will be recut and replaced as part of thest works.
Unfortunately inbound traffic will be impacted due to the detector failures and will experience some additional delays and queuing.
TMR is sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to road users and expects the previous traffic signal timings to be re-instated whe the works are completed in about 2 - 4 weeks.
For information or enquires on road works and traffic conditions or to report an incident, call 13 19 40 or visit www.131940.qld.gov.au
