Overpass repairs: Work to start, full closure this weekend
Words by Nick Crockford

Repairs to the Linkfield Road Overpass will be done at night and need a total bridge closure this weekend, says the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).

Work will be done from Sunday to Friday, 7pm-5am, with single-lane closures on the overpass and lane closures on Gympie Arterial Rd, including the southbound off-ramp to Linkfield Rd.

To enable concrete placement, a full closure of the overpass - damaged by a high-load strike for the second time in a matter of months - is needed this weekend.

TMR says this will be from 6pm Saturday September 17 to 8am Sunday September 18 - as well as 5pm Sunday September 18 to 5am Monday September 19.

Pedestrian and bike rider access will be maintained at all times during the repair work.
