The Department of Transport and Main Roads will be upgrading a section of Bundaberg – Gin Gin Road at Oakwood in coming weeks.
The Queensland Government has allocated $541,000 under the Targeted Road Safety Program, which aims to implement high benefit, cost effective road engineering treatments that address known and potential crash locations.
These works involve pavement widening to improve safety for motorists and minimise the potential for crashes along the 900-metre section between Old Bundaberg – Gin Gin Road and Splitters Creek.
The Bundaberg – Gin Gin Road and Old Bundaberg – Gin Gin Road intersection will also be upgraded to provide a dedicated right-turn lane as part of the works.
Roadworks will generally be completed between 6am and 6pm from Monday to Friday.
RoadTek will deliver the construction of the project which is expected to be completed by the end of June 2021, weather permitting.
Motorists are reminded to observe all warning signage when approaching the site and be aware of changed conditions, such as reduced speed limits and queued traffic, and adapt their driving behaviour accordingly.
The department thanks motorists and nearby residents for their patience and cooperation while these important safety works are carried out.
According to the department, Bundaberg – Gin Gin Road is a collector road connecting Bundaberg to the Bruce Highway northerly via Gin Gin and services local communities, towns, rural development and agriculture.
