Realignment takes the high road over Toowoomba Second Range Crossing

Motorists on the New England Highway realignment will have a memorable view of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) as they travel 30 metres above it.

Upcoming traffic changes on the New England Highway at Mount Kynoch will take up to 20,000 motorists a day on to the new realignment for the first time.

The realignment includes 70-metre long arch bridges spanning the TSRC.

Lane closures on the highway will be required for the final stages of work before two lanes are opened in each direction, expected from mid-June 2018.

Motorists are encouraged to use zipper merging to move through work zones during the temporary lane closures.

When all lanes are reopened on the realigned New England Highway, demolition will start on the old highway.

Excavation will also start to allow for the east-west connection of the viaduct to the TSRC.

Final construction for the New England Highway realignment is set to commence on 18 May 2018 and is expected to take four weeks to complete, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Motorists should allow an additional 10-15 minutes for their travel time around these works.
