Update on road works along D’Aguilar Highway

130703-PowellD'AguilarHighway2

Thank you for contacting the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) on behalf of your constituents, about traffic delays on the D’Aguilar Highway Safety Improvement Project currently underway at Wamuran.

As you would be aware, to ensure the safety of motorists and workers, traffic control and reduced speed limits are currently in place at the project site, and shoulder and lane closures will be required at times.

In response to constituent concerns about long delays, TMR advises on Tuesday 10 November there were longer than usual delays due to the contractor’s excavator machine striking a power line within the work site.

For safety reasons, the D’Aguilar Highway was closed for approximately ten minutes and traffic was re-routed down Gamgee Road on a stop-go traffic control arrangement.

TMR will continue to monitor the queuing lengths during these works to ensure the maximum delay experienced by motorists is no longer than the five minutes.

TMR apologies for any inconvenience caused, and appreciates the continued patience of motorists while works are underway. Constituents can contact the D’Aguilar Highway project team directly on 0409 124 802 Monday to Friday, 8am to 5.30pm for information about the project. Further information is also available by accessing TMR’s website at www.tmr.qld.gov.au and searching for ‘D’Aguilar Highway – safety improvements project.’

I trust this information assists you in responding to your constituents. If you require further information, please contact my office on 5451 7055.

Yours sincerely

Program Delivery And Operations | Department of Transport and Main Roads
