3Emergency works

Understand when road works are able to be undertaken in emergency situations.

  • If roadworks have to be done in response to emergency situations, they are permitted at any time.
  • If the works have to happen between 7:30 am and 9:30 am, or 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm on weekdays, the contractor will do minimal work to make the site safe. Once the site is safe, the rest of the work will be done outside of peak times.

4Exceptions

Understand what exceptions are in place regarding when roadworks can be undertaken on State roads.

We may allow some works outside these restrictions if:

  • traffic analysis shows that works will not impact traffic
  • the works are on a stretch of road with two lanes in both directions and are opposite to the peak traffic flow
  • if they are scheduled during school holidays.
  • or if they are a part of large road upgrade projects that generally have different conditions and restrictions
