Maintenance works on Brisbane's Riverside Expressway scheduled for later this month have been postponed. ?

Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson says the works had been due to close the northbound lanes near Margaret Street from June 28 to July 1.

But the Queensland Government decided to delay the works after it discovered a problem with one of the jacks when closing the expressway on May 24 to prepare for a full weekend lift of an entire span.

"During this lift, we discovered some corrosion to one of the jacks and have subsequently scheduled maintenance checks on all of our jacks, which means a delay in the work," Emerson says.

"The Riverside Expressway is still safe to use and we’ll keep motorists updated on future works." ? ?

The maintenance work on the 40-year-old motorway includes replacing pot-bearings which sit under the deck and allow movement during changes in temperature and traffic.
