September 14, 2009

The nightmare that is the Bruce Highway north of Brisbane could ease soon, with final upgrades on the road between Uhlamann Road and Caboolture to be completed by September 23.

According to Queensland Main Roads Minister Infrastructure Minister Craig Wallace, the stretch of road which will expand from four lanes to six only requires signage to be installed.

"The first permanent sign will installed over the Bruce Highway’s northbound off-ramp to Caboolture and Bribie Island on Sunday, 20 September," Wallace says.

"Overall, installation work is scheduled from Sunday September 20 to Wednesday 23 September and will be dependent on the weather."

Wallace also promoted the need for motorists to take extra precaution on the stretch of road as his department aims to complete the job as effectively and quickly as possible.

"As safety is the department's number one priority, traffic diversions, reduced speed limits and changed lane arrangements will occur while the signs are installed to ensure the safety of road users and road workers," he says.

"I would like to remind motorists to please slow down and drive to the changed traffic conditions during the works. Roadwork safety is your responsibility too."
