Fast-tracked works to improve Kilcoy-Beerwah Road
$1 million worth of works are set to begin on Kilcoy-Beerwah Road as part of a fast-tracked road network renewal works package.
Main Roads and Road Safety Minister Mark Bailey said works would take place later this month to improve two kilometres of the road, between River and Maleny-Stanley River Roads.
“The project will include the removal of the existing road surface, rehabilitation of the road and line marking,” Mr Bailey said.
“This will provide an improved road surface and safer driving conditions for motorists on this section of Kilcoy-Beerwah Road.
“These works are part of the Palaszczuk Government’s $140 million fast-tracked road network renewal works package that we have introduced to accelerate vital road upgrades across Queensland.
“Other projects that are being fast-tracked in the region include works on Mount Glorious, Eumundi-Kenilworth, Brisbane-Woodford and Forest Hill-Fernvale Roads.”
Mr Bailey said the project would take around one month to complete, weather permitting.
“Works for the project will take place during the day between 5am and 5pm, from Monday to Saturday,” he said.
“Motorists may experience some minor delays during the works and traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and signage will be in place.
“We thank everyone for their patience and remind motorists to drive with caution through the changed traffic conditions to ensure the safety of all motorists and our staff.”
