Albion St roadworks to start today
A WEEK-long program of roadworks along Albion St is set to start from 6am today.
A Department of Main Roads and Transport spokesman said the works would take place between the Fitzroy and Wood St intersections, weather permitting.
"These emergency flood repair works involve milling and filling, road surface repairs and resurfacing works," he said.
"Due to the nature of this work, some increase in noise and dust levels can be expected during these operations."
The spokesman said the roadworks will be carried out between the hours of 6am and 6pm, "to reduce traffic delays and maximise safety".
"All efforts will be made to maintain access to properties and businesses during the project, however some interruptions may occur," he said.
"We will work hard to minimise traffic disruption as much as possible while roadworks are carried out, however motorists may occur minor delays of up to 10 minutes."
Southern Downs Regional Council has been contracted to complete the work, which is expected to be completed by Friday, weather permitting.
The TMR spokesman urged people to drive safely during this time.
"Safety is our top priority and we ask that motorists drive to changed traffic conditions and obey all signage and instructions from traffic controllers to ensure their own safety and the safety of all road workers during works," he said.
"We thank you for your patience and understanding during the delivery of these important works and apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause."
