Repair work begins on flood-affected roads in region
FLOOD repairs to three major roads across the region are set to start this week, as part of Operation Queenslander.
New England Hwy pavement reconstruction works on the New England Hwy, near the intersection with Rosenthal Rd South, are expected to take one week to complete.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane under stop/go conditions.
Emergency works to repair flood damage to the highway at Glengallan are expected to be completed by February 18.
Additional pavement repairs in the Glengallan area will occur between February 18 and March 1.
Culvert repair works on the highway near the intersection with Savages Rd, Eton Vale are on track to be completed by May.
There will be pavement works on this section of the highway, following completion of the work on the culvert.
A section of the Warwick-Allora Rd, near the John Dee meat processing plant, will be closed while it gets repaired.
It is expected this could take up to four months to complete.
Motorists travelling between Allora and Warwick will be able to take a detour via Lyndhurst Ln.
There is a 12-tonne load limit in place on the bridge on Lyndhurst Ln.
Emergency repair works are under way on the section of the Warwick- Allora Rd between Upper Wheatvale Rd and Massie Willowvale Rd.
The road is expected to reopen to one lane of traffic later this month.
There will also be works near Browns Falls on Spring Creek Rd, 2km from the intersection with Warwick-Killarney Rd.
The works involve stabilising the slip below the road surface and reinstating the road to full width, following damage during the 2010/ 2011 floods.
During repairs access will be maintained to destinations such as Queen Mary Falls, Carr's Lookout and surrounding businesses.
Traffic during this time will be reduced to one lane under stop/go conditions.
