Public Notice: Road works on Jack Smith Gully Road, Swan Creek
14 July 2021
Maintaining and upgrading necessary infrastructure that supports the agricultural industry is a driving force behind many of the projects undertaken by Southern Downs Regional Council and road works will soon re-commence on an important rural arterial that services heavy vehicles as well as the local community.
Jack Smith Gully Road provides an important connection from Yangan Road to the Cunningham Highway for rural traffic and rehabilitation and strengthening works are expected to start on Monday 26 July 2021, weather permitting.
Operating under traffic-control arrangements, the five-week project may cause minor delays for road users during construction.
A Council spokesperson said staff would endeavour to minimise disruptions where possible and urged the community be cooperative and vigilant near the road works at all times.
“The safety of road users and our staff during construction is paramount and following the directions of on-site officers and signage will go a long way to keeping the site incident-free and completing the project within the expected timeframe,” the spokesperson said.
“Our on-site staff will help make sure local residents in the area still have access to and from their properties.
“Council appreciates the community’s cooperation and patience during construction.”
Standard construction hours will be between 6.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
