Oversized deliveries

Deliveries of bridge girders and long deck units needed to build the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing are underway.

These deliveries travel overnight from Brisbane and require intermittent closures of the westbound up lanes of the Warrego Highway, Toowoomba Range.

Toowoomba Range closures will occur between midnight and 4am and last for approximately an hour at a time. These deliveries will occur periodically until 2018.

Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times. Residents and businesses along the route may experience some noise impacts and traffic delays. All efforts will be taken by Nexus to minimise the impact while these deliveries take place.

Motorists and heavy vehicle operators are advised to seek alternative routes to Toowoomba. These routes include Murphys Creek Road and the Cunningham Highway.

Traffic management will be in place for traffic detours.

For the safety of all road users, Nexus is working with Queensland Police Service to manage the changed traffic conditions required for these deliveries.

Nexus apologises for any inconvenience and appreciates your patience while these vital construction deliveries are being carried out.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Will the community be notified when deliveries take place?

Yes. We will notify the community in advance of road closures, detours and traffic impacts via www.QLDtraffic.qld.gov.au and our traffic page.

Will the community be advised of alternative routes for road closures during precast deliveries?

Motorists will be advised to seek alternative routes when precast deliveries significantly impact the road network. Please visit www.QLDtraffic.qld.gov.au. Traffic management will be in place for all traffic detours.

Where are the Super T girders and deck units made?

Precast beams (deck units and girders) are manufactured offsite to minimise disruption to nearby residents and transported via preapproved haulage routes. Deck units and Super T girders are being manufactured by Wagners Precast and Enco Precast.

Who is transporting precast beams?

Precast beams are being transported by ALE.

What volume of precast beams will be transported?

500 Super T girders and 600 deck units are being transported for use across the project alignment. 22 of 24 structures along the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing require precast beams.

How are precast beams being transported?

Super T girders are transported in convoys. The longer Super T’s require two prime movers to travel up the Toowoomba Range.

What’s a Super T?

Super T girders were developed in Australia in the early 1990s for bridge construction. Precast bridge girders used on the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing will be up to 37m long and weigh around 90 tonnes each, with 33 cubic metres of concrete used to make each girder.
