Flood Reconstruction Of Dalby Area Roads And Highways In 2014

Following consecutive summers of damage to our road network across Queensland, several roads in the Darling Downs region were affected by flooding and heavy rainfall in early 2013.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads advises additional flood reconstruction works will be undertaken on the Bunya and Moonie Highways, and Dalby Cooyar Road. A section the Bunya Highway repairs will be located in Dalby, between North and Horace Street intersections.

During these works, some temporary changes to driveway access will be required; the project team will notify residents affected by any changes in advance. These works in the town of Dalby are expected to commence the week starting 12 May 2014 and take up to two weeks to complete.

Following these repairs, the following package of works will be delivered in the Dalby area, delivering 5.6km of pavement and culvert repairs.
Moonie Highway, starting near Fowlers Road and extending south for 2km
Bunya Highway, near the intersection with Pirrinuan-Malakoff Road
Dalby-Cooyar Road, 3km east of the intersection with the Bunya Highway
Dalby-Cooyar Road, between the intersections with Mallings Road and Pechey-Maclagan Road, east of Kaimkillenbun.
This works package is expected be completed by November 2014, weather permitting.

These works will require lane closures and changes to traffic conditions. Motorists should drive to the changed conditions and obey all signage for their own safety and the safety of road workers. Restrictions may be in place for operators of oversized and heavy vehicles. Conditions are available from the Heavy Vehicle Industry Road Report, which can be viewed online through the 13 19 40 Traffic and Travel Information website at www.131940.qld.gov.au or on calling 13 19 40.
