Bruce Highway to close for six hours
AUTHORITIES are planning to close the Bruce Highway north of Townsville for six hours.
The six-hour closure between Greenvale Street and Saunders Beach is required for the removal of a damaged span of the railway overpass near Greenvale Street, Yabulu.
The railway overpass was damaged in a recent crash on the bridge.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads said the work had been scheduled to occur late at night to limit the impact on road users as much as possible.
The Bruce Highway will be closed between Greenvale Street and Saunders Beach Road from 10pm on Wednesday 24 January until 4am Thursday 25 January.
Access will be provided for Emergency Services vehicles through the works.
"We thank motorists and the local community for their co-operation and patience," a TMR spokesman.
