New truck stop and decoupling pad opens at Charlton

Nexus has completed construction of the Nass Road truck stop and decoupling pad along the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) at Charlton.

Nexus Chief Executive Officer John Hagan said the completion of works meant the new 24-hour truck stop and decoupling pad was now open with haulage vehicle operators already benefitting from the facilities.

“The new Nass Road truck stop and decoupling pad has replaced the Warrego Highway east and west bound pads,” Mr Hagan said.

“It is located about 12.5 km west of Toowoomba city, on the eastern side of Warrego Highway and can be accessed via the signalised intersection of Warrego Highway and Nass Road.

“The key features include sealed parking, illuminated bathroom facilities and a covered picnic area to assist with driver fatigue.

“There is also short-term trailer storage available to assist with load management,” he said.

To allow road users to safely turn in and out of the TSRC on the Warrego Highway, traffic lights are now operational at the Nass Road and Wirth Road intersection.

Nexus is also nearing completion of the western interchange on and off ramps at Charlton and are currently working on the asphalting and pavement works, line marking and road furnishings.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead for their travel and be aware of daily changes to road conditions around the TSRC links.
