The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) invites the region to celebrate the upcoming opening of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing at the Community Open Day on Saturday 7th September 2019.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the views and get up close to the engineering masterpiece that has transformed the Toowoomba landscape.
The public is invited to walk a 2km section of the newly completed TSRC, between Mort Street interchange and the viaduct, before it opens to traffic.
The TSRC FREE Community Open Day will open from 11.00 am and run through to 5.00 pm.
Visitors will be able to walk to the viaduct enjoying a variety of community food and information stalls, as well as a selection of vintage cars from local clubs on display.
From there they can choose to experience the 800m viaduct, taking in the incredible outlook over the Lockyer Valley.
There is no parking at the event and all access is via FREE TransLink park â€˜nâ€™ ride buses.
All visitors must pre-register through Eventbrite – Google TSRC Open Day or head to the TMR Facebook page for more information.
