A BUSY section of Gladstone's CBD will be blocked to traffic for most of next week.

Central Lane, between Yarroon and Roseberry Streets, will be temporarily closed from Monday to Thursday.

Gladstone Regional Council Engineering Services portfolio spokesperson councillor Rick Hansen said workers would be installing a sewer manhole, connecting to the sewer main, removal of the existing manhole and backfilling, as part of sewer upgrade works for the Grand Oaks Motel.

"The temporary closure will only impact thoroughfare on Central Lane from Yarroon and Roseberry Street with access to properties and businesses fronting Central Lane not affected," Cr Hansen said.

"Residents and businesses in the area are thanked in advance, with motorists urged to be mindful of the closure and plan for detours around the work area."
