No word on bypass opening

THE Tugun Bypass will remain at a snail’s pace indefinitely with the Department of Main Roads still unable to provide details of when the closed southbound lane will re-open.

A landslip about one kilometre south of the Stewart Road interchange has kept traffic reduced to speeds as low as 10km per hour since Friday.

The bypass has been reduced to one lane southbound with concrete barriers erected for safety reasons.

An excavator arrived on site on Tuesday as work began to clear loose material after three days of geotechnical assessments to stabilise the site.

Motorists have been advised to drive to the conditions and slow down when travelling in any damaged areas.

The traffic information line on 13 19 40 can provide up-to-date information about the latest road closures.
