Key Queensland freight routes will be reduced to one lane while the Bligh Government completes a number of road maintenance projects.

Traffic controllers will enforce restrictions on the Gore and New England highways and the Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road between 4pm and 5pm during the week, leading to the Government saying road users should expect delays of up to 15 minutes.

Furthermore, traffic controllers will also enforce detours in some instances, leading to Main Roads Minister Warren Pitt encouraging road users to use alternative routes while works are underway.

The works will take place on Hume Street between Margaret Street and James Street (excluding Herries Street intersection), Anzac Avenue between South Street and Alderley Street and Taylor Street between Greenwattle Street and McDougall Street (including intersections).

According to Pitt, the $1.6 million upgrade will improve the safety and efficiency of the road network. He says works will be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.
