Landslip still stops motorists
THE land slip on the Pacific Highway at Tugun may have happened early this year, but yesterday motorists were stopped once again due to lane closures and roadworks.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads carried out further works on the affected stretch of road, about 1km south of Stewart Rd.
“This meant closing a single lane so we could get machinery on-site and keep drivers and workers safe,” a Main Roads representative said.
“If the weather stays fine we should have the current work completed in a few days, and the work zone and concrete barriers will then be removed and speed through this area will return to 100km/h by the end of the week,” Main Roads said.
The department said it appreciated the patience of drivers while the important work was being completed.
“We'll need to undertake further works to stabilise the slip area in the future but the department will continue to monitor the Tugun bypass and in particular this section.”
