RoadTek is carrying out a $1 million-plus upgrade on the intersection of at Nebo Rd and Lagoon St in Mackay to ease congestion.
Federal Member for Dawson George Christensen said the works would occur at night to limit the disruption to motorists.
“The upgrade will include an additional right turn lane when heading south on Lagoon St to assist with traffic flow,” Mr Christensen said.
“The enhancements will also complement previous upgrades completed on Nebo Road, including the Bruce Highway and Shakespeare Street intersection works.”
The improvements include works to the existing bike lane, pedestrian footpaths and road resurfacing.
Works are expected to take about four weeks to complete, weather permitting.
The Bruce Highway – Mackay Intersection Upgrade project is jointly funded by the Australian Government ($863,000) and the Queensland Government ($215,750).
