Lyell Highway west of Strickland Road - Road Surface Renewal

The Department of State Growth is upgrading the Lyell Highway on a section of road west of Strickland Road. The works will involve removing the existing road surface and replacing this with a new surface which will strengthen and improve the condition of the road.

About the project

Why is the Department of State Growth doing work on this road?

The work will improve the condition of the road surface by addressing issues with the current surface.

Construction dates

Roadworks will start in January 2019 and be complete by the end of March 2019, weather permitting.

Traffic management

Reduced speed limits at the work site are necessary for the safety of workers and road users. Please slow down, approach the work site with caution and follow all traffic control instructions.

At times traffic will be reduced to a single lane and this may cause delays. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey if traveling through the works.
