Highway works to start: TMR

The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) says work will commence in November on maintenance of the Cunningham Highway north of Warwick between Fisher Park and Cunningham’s Gap.

Motorists have expressed ongoing frustration with a 60kmh speed limit on that section of highway which TMR says was “imposed in late 2018 due to the road’s condition”.

A department spokesman told the Free Times “maintenance works are planned for the Cunningham Highway, between Fisher Park and the Gap area, from November to January 2020”.

“These include rehabilitation works, repairs, resurfacing and other minor maintenance,” the spokesman said.

“Substantial works, including major rebuilding and rehabilitation, are needed on the Cunningham Highway west section, including Cunningham’s Gap.

“We have undertaken extensive investigations to ensure the right treatments are provided.

“Once works are completed the road will be reassessed to determine an appropriate speed limit for the various sections.”
