Expect road delays for $3 million road fix
Noosa's $3 million "road fix" is going to cause motorists a little pain before the peak-time gain starting from Wednesday morning.
The run along Tewantin's Hilton Tce will involved longer delays, from Wednesday, as the final stage of work on the major road upgrade begins.
This Hilton Terrace/Ernest St intersection is one of the busiest in the shire and council project officer Cody Johnston said work gangs will be carrying out asphalt works through the new roundabout on Wednesday and Thursday during the night to reduce the impact on the community.
Once complete, the new roundabout will improve safety while helping to keep traffic flowing through the intersection even during peak times.
"Asphalt works will continue on Monday and Tuesday of next week during the day along Hilton Tce so there may be some longer delays while the contractors complete the job," Mr Johnston said.
"Laying the new road surface is the final stage of major work, and it will complete the construction of the new roundabout at the Hilton Tce/Ernest St intersection.
"We've really appreciated the community's patience while this major road upgrade project has been under way, and now we're on the home stretch the traffic disruption won't be for much longer," he said.
Contractors will need to close one lane while the asphalt work is underway, with traffic controllers to manage traffic flow in each direction.
Council reminds motorists to observe the signs and adhere to the reduced speed limits through the roadwork zone.
