The Department of Transport and Main Roads is upgrading the Bundaberg-Miriam Vale Road and Greg Tobin Court intersection to provide dedicated right and left turn-lanes.
The Queensland Government has allocated $317,000 to the project under the Safer Roads Sooner program.
SRS aims to implement engineering countermeasures and safety treatments at known and potential high severity crash sites.
A TMR spokesperson said works are expected to commence in late September 2021 and take two weeks to complete, conditions permitting.
“The scope of work includes upgrading the Bundaberg – Miriam Vale Road and Greg Tobin Court intersection to install dedicated right and left-turn lanes,” the spokesperson said.
“There will also be work to widen the road and seal the road shoulder to allow for the installation of the turning lanes as well as installation of appropriate line marking, guidance signage and warning signage.”
RoadTek will deliver the works, which will be carried out between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
“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 spokesperson said.
“Nearby residents may experience some noise and dust impacts during construction.”
“The department appreciates your patience and cooperation while these important safety upgrades are completed.”
