Bruce Hwy delays as resurfacing works launched

NIGHT works are due to start to resurface a 1km northbound section of the Bruce Highway between Tibrogargan Creek and the Johnston Rd interchange.

Transport and Main Roads North Coast district Director Leah McKenzie said the $400,000 project would involve removing the existing road surface, pavement repairs and resurfacing.

"Around 63,000 vehicles travel on this section of the Bruce Hwy each day so the resurfacing works will maintain the quality of this section of road," Ms McKenzie said.

"We plan to do the works between 8pm and 5am when traffic volumes are low to minimise disruption but road users should allow extra travel time and expect minor delays."

Traffic control, reduced speed limits and lane closures will be in place while variable message signs will alert motorists as they approach the works zone.

Priority access through the work zone will be given to emergency vehicles. Works start on April 17, and will take five nights to complete, weather permitting.
