Detour in place for Toowoomba-Karara Road

THE Department of Transport and Main Roads will be reconstructing flood-damaged sections of Toowoomba-Karara Road (also known as Wyreema Road), as part of Operation Queenslander.

Due to the nature of these works Toowoomba-Karara Road will be closed to through-traffic between the Gore Highway and Shepperd Road.

Residents of Wyreema are advised to use the Drayton Connection Road and Shepperd Road and motorists travelling to Wyreema from the Gore Highway can turn on to Westbrook-Wyreema Road.

Traffic controllers will be in place with local access strictly for residents and businesses within the work zone. 

These changed traffic conditions will be in place until November 16.

The works will involve pavement repairs, bitumen resurfacing and repairs to culverts and drainage between the intersections with the Gore Highway, south-west of Toowoomba, and Shepperd Road.

Works will be carried out Monday to Saturday between 6am and 6pm.

For up-to-date information on traffic disruptions please visit www.131940.qld.gov.au or phone 13 19 40.
