The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) advises that the 40km/h speed limit zone has been extended on the eastbound (down) lanes of the Warrego Highway on the Toowoomba Range.
The 40km/h zone now extends from the top of the eastbound lanes down the Toowoomba Range to the area known as the Saddle.
The change will enable work to be conducted safely at the point where the new 1.2km eastbound alignment will join the existing down lanes. It will require construction activity close to traffic.
Additional signage has been installed to alert drivers about the change in the speed limit on this section of the Toowoomba Range.
From Wednesday 19 February 2014, the 40km/h speed zone on the westbound (up) lanes will be extended. The 40km/h zone will commence 200m downhill from the current 40km/h zone, closer to the Saddle.
TMR also advises that works on the track between Old Toll Bar Road and Stevenson Street adjacent to the Toowoomba Range escarpment will commence from Wednesday 19 February 2014 until April 2014. The access track was closed to local traffic and pedestrians on 10 February 2014 so that construction works can be undertaken safely.
Seymour Whyte Constructions has been appointed by TMR (in agreement with Toowoomba Regional Council) to upgrade the Old Toll Bar Road track. Work on the Old Toll Bar Road track will include pavement and drainage works until April 2014 (weather permitting).
