The extensive rehabilitation works being carried out on Woodlands Road continue to progress, with road crews now moving their focus to components of Stage 2.

Lockyer Valley Regional Council Infrastructure Portfolio Councillor Michael Hagan said crews were anticipating the completion of several major components of the project in June, weather permitting.

“Throughout June, crews will be focused on completing guardrails, gravel, signage, line marking and sealing of the works, as well as installing the necessary kerb,” he said.

Stage 2 is located slightly south of Stage 1 and involves widening and upgrading the road.

Like the initial phase, the second stage of construction will have single-lane traffic, a reduced speed limit and expected five to 15-minute hold times.

Motorists are advised to prepare their journey in advance and consider seeking an alternative route to avoid delays.

“Meanwhile, a project on Ropehill Road will also undergo its final seal towards the end of June,” Cr Hagan said.

“We thank the community for its patience and understanding as we undertake these safety upgrades.

“Improving the roads throughout the entire region remains a priority for this Council.”
