The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will soon be undertaking works to permanently repair the major damage caused by ex-Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie on the section of Pine Creek Road approximately 200 metres east of the Nerang-Murwillumbah Road intersection.
As you may be aware, an entire section of Pine Creek Road was washed away during the flood events caused by ex-Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie. TMR officers undertook an emergency rebuild to reopen the road and temporarily repair the damage in a matter of 36 hours.
The upcoming works will commence mid-April 2017 and take approximately two months to complete. Working hours are from 6am to 6pm (Monday to Friday), with night and weekend work as required.
The project includes:
Restoration of the road formation and pavement
- Stabilisation of the new and existing road embankments both upstream and downstream
- Installation of a new guardrail
- Reinstatement of line marking and signage
- Minimal clearing works.
- Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists can expect changed road conditions and delays on Pine Creek Road as a result of lane closures and reduced speed limits.
- During construction, motorists can expect delays of up to 15 minutes with traffic control in place.
Variable message signage will be installed prior to work starting to advise the community of impacts during project works. All road users are encouraged to proceed with caution through the work zones.
It is important to note that weather, site conditions and contractor availability can impact the proposed work schedule, which may result in a delayed start and/or finish time.
These works will be jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Government under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements.
