Traffic

To ensure the safety of motorists and our workforce, changed traffic conditions will be necessary at times. This includes reduced speed limits, lane closures, delays and detours. Traffic control and signage will be used, as required, to direct motorists safely through the work area.


The project team aims to notify residents and motorists about changed traffic conditions in advance, so they can plan their journey and allow extra travel time.

For more information please contact the Community Relations team on 1800 198 878 or email info@nexusTSRC.com.au.

Motorists should expect minor delays and disruptions where we undertaking TSRC work alongside roads in the Toowoomba region. Read on for current and upcoming traffic impacts.
