Work being done

Trans4m Rail will deliver level crossing and drainage upgrade works on Croppa-Moree Road, approximately 3km south west of Croppa Creek town centre.

Works will include installing new drainage structures and upgrades to level crossing 917.

To facilitate the works, a temporary gravel access road will be constructed to divert traffic, including road trains, around the existing level crossing.

To allow for drainage works on both sides of Croppa-Moree Road, a traffic lane switch will occur midway throughout the works to provide a safe work zone during construction.

What is a traffic switch?

Diverting traffic onto a different section of road is referred to as a traffic switch.  Switching traffic helps minimise any traffic congestion caused by construction works. Motorists are urged to follow changing traffic conditions on site, including speed zone reductions and directional traffic signage.

What to expect

  • Trucks and other vehicles will enter and exit the construction site
  • Construction machinery and equipment will be operating on site adjacent to live traffic along Croppa-Moree Road
  • Materials and equipment will be delivered
  • Some of these works will be noisy and mitigation measures will be in place
  • Some minor delays are expected during work hours

Machinery used

  • trucks
  • cranes
  • graders
  • excavators
  • loaders
  • rollers
  • water/vacuum excavation trucks

How we’re managing impacts

  • Traffic controls will be in place, where required, including Variable Message Signage (VMS) boards.
  • Water carts will be on site to wet down areas to assist in managing dust.
