Road temporarily closed under Bruce Highway in Palmview

The Bruce Highway Upgrade – Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway (CR2SM) is progressing well. A number of traffic changes are occurring on major and local roads to facilitate ongoing construction works.

From Wednesday 6 November 2019 (weather permitting), the road connecting Frizzo Road and Pignata Road under the Bruce Highway in Palmview, will be temporarily closed at night between 7pm and 5am, Sunday to Thursday.

The nightly closures will be in place for approximately one week (weather permitting). The traffic changes will allow for roadside barrier relocations and bridge demolition works to be carried out on the old southbound Bruce Highway carriageway.
