Temporary detour on Butchers Rd
A TEMPORARY detour is in place on Butchers Rd as the Department of Transport and Main Roads continues works to upgrade three Bruce Hwy intersections south of Childers.
Butchers Rd is closed at the Thompson Rd intersection, and access to the Bruce Hwy is diverted via Thompson Rd and Taylor St.
A Main Roads spokesperson said the detour aimed to minimise traffic disruptions while allowing crews to build a new alignment of a section of Butchers Rd as quickly as possible.
The works are expected to take about two weeks to complete and the detour is expected to be removed before the school holidays in April, weather permitting.
Access between the Bruce Hwy and the northern end of Butchers Rd will remain open.
Main Roads thanked local motorists for their ongoing patience and co-operation while these works continued.
