I received the following update from the Department of Transport and Main Roads before the end of 2012 –
” The Department advises that Palmwoods-Montville road has returned to two lanes at the landslip sites near 553 and 569 Palmwoods-Montville Road.
We will require further short term closures at these sites in early 2013 to complete asphalt works on the road surface. Further information on these closures will be provided when timeframes are confirmed.
The closure at the main landslip near 734 Palmwoods-Montville Road remains in place. The complex works required at this site have progressed significantly, and will continue into the first half of 2013. It is expected that the road at this location will re-open to traffic in the second quarter of 2013, weather permitting.”
My thanks are again extended to residents and road users for your cooperation during lane closures and additional full road closures this past year. Apart from the main landslip closure, there were full road closures at several sites while reconstruction work was undertaken.
I would also like to thank residents for their patience during the construction activity which has occurred in close vicinity to properties, and appreciate the cooperation of property owners who have enabled access to those properties for works to proceed.
I will continue to provide updates as this project progresses.
