Tugun Bypass southbound lanes open

BOTH southbound lanes of the Tugun Bypass have been re-opened after a landslip blocked one lane last Friday.

Loose material one kilometre south of the Stewart Road interchange was removed with an excavator and concrete blocks were erected for safety reasons.

The speed limit has been reduced to 80km per hour as road works continue.

Geotechnical assessments were conducted on the landslip before any work could begin in order to stabilise the site, causing excavation to be delayed until Tuesday.

Traffic was reduced to one lane at speeds as low as 10km per hour last week, causing major delays on the Queensland and New South Wales border.

Northbound lanes were unaffected.

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 or go online at www.myroadinfo. com.au
