The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will commence asphalt resurfacing works on the Captain Cook Highway at the intersection of Mossman – Mt Molloy Road.
Crews will be onsite between 6 am to 6 pm from Wednesday 5 to Saturday 8 October 2022. Timeframes may be subject to change depending on the program of works and weather conditions.
Variable Message Signs (VMS) will be in place on the approaches to the work site prior to works commencing to ensure motorists are aware of the changed traffic conditions. Changes in dates due to poor weather will be posted on the VMS.
The works will involve resurfacing the road surface to extend the life of the road pavement and reduce the formation of potholes. The works will improve safety and travelling conditions for road users.
For the safety of road users and maintenance crews, changed traffic conditions will be in place including temporary speed limit and lane reductions, under coordination of traffic controllers while the works are carried out.
Intermittent full closures of the road will be required at times to carry out the works. Road users can expect delays of up to 15-minute periods during the full closures. Road users should plan their journeys accordingly.
Nearby residents and businesses may experience noise associated with the works, such as the sound of trucks, light machinery, and vibrations while the work is carried out. The contractor will take all reasonable and practicable actions to minimise these impacts.
If you require further information about these works, please contact the Department of Transport and Main Roads on 07 3066 7060.
