Cunningham's Gap will be closed at times during the week
CUNNINGHAM'S Gap was closed for several hours yesterday, with more delays expected throughout the week.
Motorists are being urged to choose an alternative route as workers remove loose material and large boulders from the section of the Cunningham Hwy.
A Department of Transport and Main Roads spokeswoman said yesterday's work required lane closures of the highway, including three full closures for several hours, for the safety of motorists and workers.
"Motorists were advised of the works via SMS, email, 13 19 40 and message boards throughout the region, including on VMS signs at Eight Mile," she said.
"Timing for this project has been co-ordinated with the Toowoomba Range works to minimise disruption to the community."
The periodic lane closures will continue throughout the week in both directions until early December.
Work will be carried out Monday to Friday, between 6am and 6pm.
