Traffic Changes in Townsville

If you’re heading to Townsville expect some traffic changes as the Section 4 project of the Townsville Ring Reconstruction continues.

Queensland Minister for Main Roads Mark Bailey says diverting northbound traffic under the new bridge, and a slight realignment of southbound traffic, will allow for construction of additional southbound lanes on the Bruce Highway.

“From early September, Shaw Road traffic will also be diverted onto the ring road before exiting via the newly constructed Shaw Road off ramp,” Mr Bailey said.

“These traffic changes will allow for the reconfiguration of Shaw Road and connection of Townsville Ring Road Section 4 to the existing Townsville Ring Road.”

The Project is now expected to be completed by early 2017, weather permitting.
